If your favourite view of the city is whizzing by it on two wheels, then Saint Cloud in Fitzroy is your idea of heaven. Founded by Nick Mahoney, about as dedicated a bike lover as it's possible to be, the concept bike and accessories store brings a bit of fashion to cycling culture, making it a hipster's paradise. Parked on Gertrude Street, Mahoney borrowed the name from a Parisian commune that, in turn, took its name from one of the first bike races. You can pick up funky bike fashion at the same time as you grab a new gear, and there's also a repairs service upstairs. If you're one of those northsiders that gets itchy if you even think of crossing the Yarra, you can shop online, too.
