About Us


A bike shop in the vibrant East city precinct of Cape Town's CBD. Our team is made up of passionate bike lovers with extensive experience in the cycling industry. With backgrounds in pro cycling, personal training and elbow grease in bike workshops, we offer a full range of services and expert advice.



Anyone that has been around road or marathon mountain-biking over past 10 years, know Charles' pedigree on a bike. With a focus on the single day, Ultra-Marathon and multi-day stage events, he has multiple SA cup wins and ABSA Cape Epic African jerseys. Having represented South Africa at multiple world championships and still holding some of the most prized Strava KOM's in the Cape, he is the real deal. 
With a formal background in Mechanical Engineering, his understanding of products, how they function and where they are best applied, is second to none. Have a question on bearings- ask him. BB compatibility- he knows. Real-world benefits of products- he'll tell you honestly. 

Marc is our chief spanner spinner and workshop head honcho. As a former top downhill racer, and multiple podiums at a national level, Marc has a wealth of knowledge to draw on. "Grip it and rip it", is a term he knows well and has practiced extensively in the pursuit of reliable products for the "average" mountain biker.  Suspension settings- he's got you. Wheel build- sorted! Latest Di2 systems- no stress. 
With a formal background in motor mechanics, Marc has, fortunately for us and for you, returned to his first love of bicycles and now applies his trade at ECC. His extensive knowledge of systems and processes provides him with a holistic approach to making your ride run as smoothly as possible. He's a no-frills kinda guy, so no sugar coating and no bullshit here. If it's fixable, he'll do it. If not, well, it's not fixable.
Talk to him- he's more friendly than he looks. 


J-RAD as he is affectionately known to those in the mix, is jack of all trades on the bike. Want to rail it on the MTB- sure thing, lets go. Want to rivet on the local morning road ride- hold the wheel. Evening throw down at the trails? There. Gravel bike adventure- name the time and place.
Jarryd has raced both Downhill and Ultra-Marathons at a world cup level and understands the requirements of this on both a physical and equipment level. Ultimately, a bit of a bike-nerd, he probably knows what you need more than you do. Only because he's likely been there, broken it and already learnt the hard way, so you don't have to. 


All in all, we're just simple, bike loving guys and we've said it before and we will say it again- we're here for the ride.
Join us on this adventure!
Lets have a coffee, a beer, a glass of wine and just talk bikes.
