Sus the Local Bike Shop: Cycle Torque

Without a competition to base our choice of a featured bike shop on for the August issue we were happy to receive a call from Gerrit Jonker an officer in the South African Police service about Cycle Torque in East London. Gerrit was in East London for the provincial SAPS champs, when disaster struck, towards the end of the first day’s racing he broke his rear hub. Hoping they’d be able to fix it before the second day’s racing he took his wheel to Cycle Torque. Sadly they didn’t have the necessary spare on hand, but they offered him a temporary replacement wheel from one of their own bikes. How is that for amazing service!


Cycle Torque stocks Momsen, Giant, Avalanche, Muna and Axis bikes, as well as Look, Candy, Fox, SRAM, Shimano, Lezyne, Kenda and a whole lot more gear and accessories. They also do Evox, Isostar and Gu supplements if you’re in the area for a race and in need of a energising top-up.

At the heart of the Cycle Torque store is the desire to assist any biker were possible in any time of day or night. They offer a host of extra services including selling second hand bikes for their customers, collecting and dropping off your bike if you’re too busy to take it in for a service, and you can have your new bike fitted in store too. They also offer skills training, fitness coaching and group indoor training sessions though the association between Cycle Torque and Skill-Up.

For more information visit and online, or find Cycle Torque on Facebook. If you’re in East London you can drop by the store for a chat about the great trails that just keep popping up in the Eastern Cape, you’ll find them at 2 Sherwood House, Sherwood Avenue, Beacon Bay, East London.
