Once your bike arrives, you can use our VIP Express Pickup to collect your bike quickly and easily.

Remember that every new bike from BBF comes with UNLIMITED free silver servicing for the first 12-months.
We recommend new bike owners come in for a service in the first 6-12 weeks. This is
important to ensure the bike is running safely and is perfectly set up for you.
On going, we strongly recommend servicing your bike at least every 6 months, as this:

Our VIP Express Pickup makes collecting your bike easier than ever.
If you have preordered a new bike, we will TEXT you once your bike is fully assembled and ready to collect.
Once you have received the text, please CALL US when convenient on 9907 3500 so you can:
- Finalise any remaining balance owing, and
- Let us know if you would like any accessories fitted on your bike before you pick it up
When you have completed the above steps, you can use our VIP EXPRESS PICKUP.
Please remember to have your paid-in-full receipt with you when you come and collect your bike. We would have emailed this to you so a printed or an electronic version on your phone is fine.
And if you would like a CONTACTLESS pickup, we can even bring your bike out to you in the car park, just give us a call when you arrive.
These are compatible with amazing new virtual programs such as Zwift and FulGaz, to help you stay active no matter the conditions.
Given the strong demand for these trainers, please give us a call on 9907 3500 to make sure we have the one you’re after in stock.
We can happily help you register your bike in store. Alternatively, you can visit the bike manufacturer’s website and register online.
