History of Happy Wheels Bikes and Scooters
100 meters from our store is Waterloo skatepark so in 2017 Happy Wheels Bikes started a range of scooters. Parents came looking for scooters, and kids looking came looking for parts. Now we have a great range of scooters for everyone. From toddlers on 3 wheel scooters and kids on 2 wheel scooters, to adults, commuters, electric scooters and freestyle. We only stock premium brands including Micro and Globber for kids, adults and commuters.
Freestyle brands include AO, Affinity, Aztek, Apex, District, Dominator, Addict, Ride858, Eagle, Flavor, Ethic, Friendly, Envy, District, Root Industries, Grit, Crisp, Aztek, Addict, Ride858, Elite, Phoenix, Native, Nitro Circus, TSI, Unfair, Urban Artt, Wise.
Happy Wheels started as a service-only business run from home. In 2010 we opened our bike servicing business in a small space located in Kingsford and offered our customers Felt Bikes, a brand we ride, love and still have in our store today. After quickly growing out of Kingsford, we relocated to Kensington, from there we had a bit more room to offer a greater range of parts and accessories, wheels, wheel hire, Focus Bikes, and finally Cervelo and Look Bikes. It wasn’t long before we grew out of Kensington, and so now you can find us at Waterloo, with Avanti and classic Malvern Star added to our range.
