About MBW


Shane Paton - Bicycle MechanicHi, I’m Shane, the owner and operator of the Mobile Bicycle Workshop here in Canberra. Please take the time to read the information provided on the website. Feel free to contact me via email or phone if you have any questions or would like to make a booking.

Why use MBW?


I will provide you with the highest level of service and expertise when it comes to the repair and maintenance of your bicycle. I offer convenience by organising a time that suits you and provide a fast turnaround whilst maintaining the highest standards of workmanship. You will find competitive rates on all repairs and servicing. I provide detailed service and repair reports so you know exactly what has been carried out on your bike. I stand behind all my work with a 60-day guarantee.


I have over 20 years experience in bicycle repair, servicing and maintenance. I have worked on bikes ranging from commuters to tourers, children’s bikes through to elite and professional race bikes. Most of my time as a bicycle mechanic has been spent in a retail environment here in Canberra. I was also fortunate to have spent a few years as the AIS Road and Mountain Bike Mechanics under coaches Heiko Salzwedel and Damian Grundy respectively.


I have built a sound knowledge of the humble bicycle over my years as a bicycle mechanic. From tuning gears to building wheels, servicing shocks right through to bare frame rebuilds, I apply a methodical and precise work ethic to every job I take on. So, whether you are riding the latest electronic Di2 components or prefer the ride of a single geared bike, I have something to offer.


Since a child I have been on two wheels, initially for the freedom to explore the local suburbs, and later when representing Australia in Cross Country Mountain Biking, the ability to explore Australia and the World. Nowadays my riding is at a more relaxed pace, commuting the paths and roads of Canberra or riding local trails with friends.

Fully Equipped

I love to have the right tool for the job, meaning I am well equipped to service and maintain your bike. My ever-expanding inventory of tools and equipment means that I will keep pace with the ever-changing bicycle industry and its associated technology.


Using MBW is easy!

If you wish to drop-off and pick-up your bike from my workshop I can arrange a suitable time.
