About Us

Michael Latimer

Owner, Head Mechanic, Caffeine Addict

You could say that sports and customer service is in his blood. Working from the age of fifteen in his parents sports store (Summerland Sports) on Saturday mornings. Michael then studied Applied Science at Southern Cross University until he chose to go into retail full-time, eventually managing the Lismore sports store. Once Summerland Sports expanded to Ballina (at first in the very same location as Transition Cycles is today) the move was eventually made for Michael to manage the Ballina store instead. After six years in Ballina helping other locals with their many sporting endeavours he and his wife decided to open Transition Cycles.

Cycling is now what he eats, sleeps and breathes. Michael has a passion for perfection and an almost unhealthy need to see his customers happy.
