About us


Johnsonville Cycles
is run by me Francis Hoen (owner) .

I am a veteran (40+) MTB racer with ten national series (’93 vet XC winner) and countless local events behind me. I have competed at three (94, 97, 98) world champs. I currently ride a Merlin mountain XC bike, Jamis XLT Trail bike, Eddy Merckx Titanium AX road bike, 1983 Classic Healing MTBike, Raceline Rhino 20" trials bike, Raleigh Taurus Titanium single speed and a Scott team racing MTB converted for road use…However my current fetish is for vintage motorcross bikes.. I am reliving some of my mis-spent adolescence rebuilding classic MX and Enduro machines from the 70’s and 80’s ... what a life!!

I am being helped out by David Milne, who is applying his years of experience in the retail scene to try to make our little shop competitive in the brave new world of mega-stores and online purchasing. Dave has a collection of bikes that will make you salivate for hours.

Chief wrench is Daniel Meilink who is doing very well thankyou in the DH scene with a top 4 in the recent nationals. You wont break any wheels that Daniel builds for you.

We are all cycling enthusiasts, and like to think that it shows in the knowledge and service we pass on to our customers.
