Hello all, hope you’re safe and well and still riding!
In light of the current crisis we will now be open by appointment only. Please call or email with any enquiries before coming in.
Our hours will be the same for calls (Tuesday – Saturday). We hope to keep you so riding over the difficult months that lie ahead so to minimise risk please do not show up without contacting us in advance – we are a small shop and can’t practise appropriate distancing measures if we have several people around at once.
That’s all for now, stay safe out there.

We have finally (just about) finished moving to Northcote from today! A massive thankyou to everyone who helped us today and over the last few weeks – we couldn’t have done it without you!
We will be open from Tuesday around mid day but will be setting up and only able to offer a limited service – we’ll announce a full launch once we’ve finished in the coming weeks so keep an eye on our social media and here for that.
New address is:
12/148 Arthurton Road, Northcote. You can also reach our shop from Woolhouse Street.
Please note that Tuesday 10th March we’ll be opening later at noon.
Ride safe, we’ll see you in Northcote!
It’s a new year and new decade and a new home in the pipeline for Mottainai. We’ve had a great time here in Collingwood and sadly we must leave to make way for a new luxury apartment development (there goes the neighbourhood!). As of today (25th of January) we’ll no longer be booking jobs in, hiring bikes, or selling from the floor at 23 Johnston. We are planning a garage sale – time permitting – which will be advertised on Facebook and Instagram, so keep an eye out for that!
As for our next home, well, stay tuned for updates here and on the socials. We’ll be announcing a new address and opening day as soon as we’ve got it all locked in. And we will be staying in Melbourne’s inner north!
If you have a bike with us that needs to be picked up or have your eye on one from the shop floor then give us a ring, we will be packing up but still here for around a week.
Sorry for any inconvenience and watch this space for updates.
Thanks for all the good times in Collingwood and hope you all have a great 2020. See you in our new home!
Apologies for any confusion but our ‘fantastic’ WordPress website has some serious issues! It decided to put a very out of date post on the home page, which despite being dated 2017 has caused considerable confusion relating to our opening hours!
Our hours and location can be found on the relevant page above or via Google etc. but to make it simpler I’ll put them here, too.
Tuesday – Saturday, 8.30-5.30 weekdays and 10.30-5.30 Saturday
Anyway, with that out of the way please check our Facebook and Instagram pages for more up to date info (who uses a blog in 2019, anyway?!)…
