Well, Penang island have always has 2 most popular bike shops, which are CCI and Chin Aik Industries. Opening on August 15th is a new bicycle shop by the name of Dreamwerkz Cycles Sdn. Bhd.
Why is this bike shop gets my spotlight?
Well its cuz unlike other bike shop that might open without my knowledge, this bike shop is open by CCI's technician, Faizal. He is a experienced mechanic and has spent years fixing and maintaining from low to high-end bicycles. Although the details of his new found business is a bit sketchy but I will update more info bout it once I went to the shop. My guess is he will be distributing bicycles from a UK branded company named Pipedream Cyclez. Since its a UK designed bike, riders could expect the bike to have ample mud clearance and full sealed pivots. Components that he will bring in remains unknown.
The shop is located at:
163F-1 Wisma Seri Perak, Jalan Perak, 10150, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia (Click here for Map)
So whos the technician in CCI now, since Faizal opened his own shop?
My guess is the technician job will be handled by the shop owner himself, Gary. He is a very experience bicycle technician and has been in the MTB business even before Mountain Biking become a wide known sport in Penang Isle.
