Melody Wheels provides excellence in wheel building and wheel repair services for cyclists in Perth and Western Australia. The business originated in 2012 while I was working as a mechanic at Glowworm Bicycles in Marrickville (Sydney). On a daily basis I was meeting people who were having difficulties with their wheels so I started building my own wheelsets and sold them through the shop.
Wheel building became my vocation. I began taking orders from cycling friends and clubmates in the Dulwich Hill Bicycle Club. I built my first thousand wheels, studied the science of wheel building, and I traveled to the United States to complete a professional certification as a DT Swiss Advanced Wheel Builder.
In 2014, my partner and I moved from Sydney to Fremantle with the arrival of our first child. A change of city lead to a change of career path. In late 2015, I rented a workshop space in the Fremantle Prison small business incubator and started building wheels full-time.
