Calling bike mechanics – jobs in Melbourne and Sydney

Can you assemble a bike, blindfolded, in less than 3 minutes?

To be honest we probably couldn’t either, but if you even stopped for a brief second to think about whether you could, then we’d like you to read on.

The reason is we’re looking for part-time and full-time bicycle mechanics or sales assistants to join our teams in Melbourne and Sydney.

the Chappelli Cycles Melbourne Warehouse

Specifically, someone who is resourceful, enthusiastic, customer-service focused, and who has at least 2 years’ experience building and servicing bicycles such as this one, this one, or this beautiful specimen here.

If that sounds like you or someone you know, send us an email with a CV or brief introduction outlining:
– Why you’d like to work for Chappelli
– Your experience; and
– What types of bikes you’d like us to build if you were given a choice.

Chappelli Cycles wins International Design Award for NuVinci® bicycle

Chappelli Cycles’ NuVinci® bicycle won the Sports and Leisure category of the prestigious Australian International Design Awards on Friday.

> Download the press release

The Chappelli NuVinci® is the first Australian bike equipped with continuously variable gearing. Riders can select their preferred gear ratio as easily as turning a radio dial and without fear of jarring gear changes or body jolts.

Tom and Pablo accept the award.
Tom and Pablo with the award.

Accepting the Award, Chappelli co-founder Pablo Chappelli said it was “an absolute honour.”

“We are immensely proud to win this recognition for the NuVinci® and also for Chappelli which we only started two years ago.

“Given the quality of this year’s competition, including esteemed design companies such as Nokia, Range Rover, Bose and Dyson, we are particularly honoured. This award proves that the spirit of design is alive and well in Australia.”

The bicycle is the result of a 12-month collaboration with US-based Fallbrook Technologies, pioneers of the world-first ‘infinitely variable internal hub’ gear system. The system’s 360° ratio equates to the equivalent of 10 traditional gears.

Getting their 15 seconds...

In addition to the unique gearing system, the Chappelli NuVinci® won praise for its

simply design aesthetic and smooth ride. The bicycle has a hand-crafted and hand-painted lugged CRMO frame, deep dish chrome rims, leather grips and seat, and an integrated lighting system that allows 360° degree visibility for the rider.

The NuVinci® was also nominated as one of nine finalists for the overall Australian Design Award and has been selected by the Australian PowerHouse Museum to be displayed in an exhibition of Australian design excellence.

The Australian International Design Awards is a showcase for the best-designed products from Australia and around the globe.
