Bike Bestie is a unique, small workshop located in inner Brisbane. My name is Emma Best and my aim is to share my bicycle passion with my local cycling community. Through my cycling industry work experience, Bike Bestie has evolved and found its cycling legs – providing custom services to the specific needs of each individual customer.

Specialising in custom builds, bike servicing, maintenance training and cycling programs, I cater for whatever you and your bike may need. The idea is to encourage and inspire more people to get out on their bicycles and express themselves through their beautiful, fun-filled machines.

Bike Servicing

Gears not changing properly? Wheels out of true or rubbing on your brakes? Brakes howling or not stopping you at all? My fully equipped workshop is set up for everything from a basic tune up to a complete overhaul. A clean, properly adjusted bicycle is a marvel of efficiency, and is of course much safer to ride.

    Custom Bike Builds

    This is the fun part – where I work with you, and together we get to be expressive and creative as we develop your bicycling masterpiece. We will combine my bicycle knowledge – what is available, original and affordable solutions for your bikes quirks and what will work – with your hopes and dreams of creating the ultimate bicycle to bring you years of happiness and freedom.

    It doesn’t have to be a new bike either. Your old tourer or mountain bike or racer which has spent 10 years in the shed can be totally revamped and revitalised! I love recycling old bicycles and working with locally manufactured products – my aim is to combine these with the customers needs to create unique cycling machines!

    I started out building bikes for friends, partners and family members. I have built bikes that both the owners and I are pretty proud of. Check out my fantastic custom bike build gallery below!
