Coming to Adelaide for the Tour Down Under? Check out Super Elliots

As many of you know, I live in Adelaide, and the tour down under is one of the biggest sporting events of the year for our small city. For those of you visiting, there are a few good local bike shops in Adelaide, and my favourite one would be Super Elliots, at 200 Rundle street. These guys are booked out for services, but they’re more than happy if you want to come in and use their track pump. So if you’ve forgotten your pump or your spares the boys at Super Elliots can bail you out.

The shop front – apologies for the low quality photos, but I’ve got a maximum file size restriction.

They’ve also got some shop merchandise, which could be a perfect souvenir. Ranging from inexpensive bottles to custom Santini kit they’ve got something for every budget.

Starting off with their cheaper shop branded merchandise are their bottles and cages, their bottles are quiet simple, and being available in two sizes (medium ~700ml and large ~850ml) you can pick a suitable size for your needs.

They also have carbon cages, made by Bikecorp. Nothing too weight weenie, but a reasonable 22g cage.

They also have a full wardrobe of kit, unlike some shops in Adelaide (which will only stock summer kit now), they also have floor stock of some winter kit, perfect if you need it back home.

I particularly like their shop Jersey, nice and classic.

These guys are open 9am till 5:30pm on weekdays, with the exception of Friday, which they open till 9pm, perfect if you’re checking your bike over before the weekend ride and find that you need another tube etc. Weekends they trade from 11am till 4:30pm. They can get quite busy, best time to go is usually when they open, till about 11:30am.

They’re open 7 days, perfect if you urgently need spare parts.
