This is what Gear owner Erick has to say about his awesome store in the West End:
After having a restaurant in Amsterdam eight years, The Netherlands, I wanted to do something else. So four years ago I bought a track bike and became a bike messenger. Through the love for these bikes and my other interests in street culture I decided to set up a small shop in fixed gear bikes and street fashion.
Mid 2008, I suddenly had the possibility to relocate to Brisbane. I picked up my shop plans and decided to develop them here. By early 2009 GEAR opened its doors for the first time.
The space is split in two. One side is a bicycle workshop and showroom and the other side is filled with good quality street fashion and accessories.
