Testimonials


“Just purchased my first road bike from Rival Bikes and I couldn’t be happier with the friendly manner , informative tips and great service they provided me. Their expertise in fitting the bike to suit has made the transition from hybrid to road bike smooth and I love riding with cleats… effortless compared to the hybrid . Am hooked !! So if you are wanting to purchase any type of bike or accessories then I suggest give them a call as they are great to deal with.” – Jane Fitzgerald


“I can not thank Rival Bikes enough for my recent bike fit. Thank you to Toby & John for your help. I cannot wait to go for a long ride and feel comfortable :) THANK YOU” – Taneil Davidson


“Thanks John Williams and Donna Thompson at Rival Bikes for helping me to purchase my Trek Speed Concept 9 Series Time Trial bike almost 3 years ago, and it is still handling beautifully. I recently raced in Ironman Cairns and the 180k bike was a highlight of my race. She handled the various road surfaces, hills, speedy descents, head and tail winds like a dream. I managed a good bike split of 6:15 and continued into the run to bring the race home first in my age group. The precise bike fit provided by Rival Bikes also contributed to a comfortable and fast ride. Thanks also to Toby Somerville for helping me to pack my bike for the trip, and install a drink system to the rear so I could carry my full bike nutrition plan with me. I’m looking forward to my next race together with the support of the expert help from the Rival team.” – Karen  Short
