The Early Years
Seems like Kim was always destined to be involved in the Bicycle industry. At 15 he became a Bicycle Mechanic and Wheel Builder.
Then when he needed something else to occupy his time he worked at Next Gen gym in North Adelaide as a spin instructor and carrying out body profiling involving tasks such as measuring body fat percentages and analysing blood samples.
Bicycle Racing Experience
Kim while being an excellent builder and repairer of bicycles, was also involved in racing.
Kim was a;
- Elite A Grade Road Racer
- Downhill and Cross Country Racer
Kim was one of the original organisers and racers in the Cross Country events in South Australia.
Kim was working for the “firies” doing physiology and rehab work, before he ventured into the cycling business with a friend.
The friend pulled out and so Kim decided to leave the “firies” and go into the retail cycling business.
Kim has always been generous with his time and support. For instance he help out in the 2007 World Police and Fire Games. His help was most appreciated, “Kim, Thanks for the loan of the bikes. Couldn’t have done it without you” – Bo Kummelehne (L.A.C.D. Fire).
Kim previously has had extensive experience in Wheel Building for Southcott where he built tens of thousands pairs of wheels for the Avanti bicycle range.
From there he had a bicycle business at Henley Beach for 6 and a half years. It was a successful business which expanded into three shop frontages – 2 for bikes and 1 for a gymnasium (bringing his skills of physiology and rehab work).
North Adelaide Cycles
After Coast Cycles Kim formed North Adelaide Cycles and moved into Melbourne St., North Adelaide for 6.5 years, where he is most remembered and sorely missed. He was mostly known for his expert cycle servicing and cycling coaching.
Kim decided to move away from the retail bicycle industry and concentrate on where his passion lies. In 2014 he moved into his home garage next to his wife’s hairdressing salon to concentrate on – coaching, services (including Wheel Builds and repairs) and custom builds.
Kim has kept the name of North Adelaide Cycles where he provides; Services, Custom Building, Wheel Repairs and Building and Coaching.
You will still find excellent service at North Adelaide Cycles – but sorry no bikes are sold.
