About BMCR

That's 'BMCR', not 'BMC'. We are not a bike brand.

Adelaide's best-kept bicycle secret

Home / About

Pete Hague


Pete has been working in bike shops since he was 14 (and rebuilding bikes since he was 5).

Realising that Adelaide lacked a dedicated premier servicing centre where cyclists could feel confident that their bikes were being expertly looked after, Pete launched BMCR in November 2004.

Pete’s mechanical skills quickly built a cult following; within three weeks of BMCR opening, the workshop was completely booked out, and it's been that way ever since.

When he's not in the workshop, Pete enjoys hitting the trails or hills on his own bikes.

He is also extremely fond of wine and cheese.

Everything But Mechanics

After a previous life in hospitality and sports publishing, Lia joined BMCR in July 2007.

In addition to front of house duties, Lia looks after BMCR's customer service, admin, and marketing (though she will change a tube if you ask her nicely).

She is also the author of three published novels with Simon & Schuster and Pan Macmillan. If your local bookshop doesn't have them, BMCR does!

Lia is extremely fond of snaffling Pete's wine and cheese.

Andrew Field


In September 2009, BMCR was delighted to welcome Andrew Field as its second mechanic.

Andrew brings BMCR another 20 years of bicycle industry mechanical experience, a Zen-like calm, and an obsession with hummus and vanilla slice (though not together).

Andrew can also be found racing at the AMTBC series as well as taking on adventures such as the Cape Epic, because he's hard-core. And kind of a masochist.

Shane Walden


The newest member of the BMCR team, Shane has been around the bike industry for quite some time, and now brings his formidable skills to the workshop.

When he's not tinkering with bikes, riding bikes, or thinking about bikes, Shane is spending quality time with his Delica, or hanging out with his loved ones, including his doggo June.

Shane is also powered by chocolate-covered coffee beans.

What You Say

My wheel is excellent after your hub service. I had been to another bike shop close to me twice within days with the wheel cones and cassette coming loose after both services (very frustrating and disappointing not to mention waste of money and time) before I came to BMCR.
