When you combine the pull-up power of an Olympic professional rider with the push-down force of a technical mechanic wizard, you get Gear Change – South Africa’s ultimate bicycle store.
Our advanced bike fit studio, 24-hour turn around workshop and store are all designed to get any cyclist ready for race day, smashing PBs.
Having raced at every level imaginable, the two founders of Gear Change are driven by an intense passion for the sport. It’s this deep understanding and love of two wheels that makes Gear Change more than a bike store. We’re our customers’ coach and pit crew, getting you on the right bike so you can crush the climbs and dominate the descents.
Founded on Passion
Founded by David George and Justin Tuck in 2012, Gear Change leads the bunch.
David is a former professional cyclist who rode with Lance Armstrong in the US Postal Service Team, competed in 3 Olympic Games for South Africa and is the proud winner of CommonWealth medals.
His partner, Justin, is a former diesel mechanic turned renowned bike mechanic. While fluent in all things mechanical, Justin also cycles competitively and together with David has achieved podium finishes in some of the SA’s most gruelling races.
What makes Gear Change outpace the competition is their combined expertise. Together, they are one formidable team. They understand life behind bars.
Bike Fit for a King
On the road or the trails, it’s just you and the bike. The geometry of the bike with your physique and how you integrate as one is the difference between leading or dropping behind the pack.
The Bike Fit Studio at Gear Change uses the very best technology in tandem with David’s experience and international accreditation to achieve the perfect split of man and machine. Every cyclist, no matter the level, will reap the benefits of a perfect fit not only in performance but also to avoid stress on the saddle or after a day out on the bike.

What Our Customers have to Say
Amazing guys. Made a plan to fix my ‘girl’ at short notice. Was able to ride over the weekend. Even better to bump into them on the trails the next day. 100% recommend them.

The guys at the shop are awesome. 2 Trek bikes later, I am a loyal customer. Extended help from all the team makes this the only bike shop worth going to in Cape town. Thank you.
