Malachi Moxon of ‘Northside Wheelers’

Malachi Moxon strikes me a guy who likes to get to the point. No bullshit.  His passion for cycling drives both personal and business life. Northside Wheelers is Malachi’s latest venture, a boutique in Prahran , Melbourne , selling fine cycling ware’s to those who don’t wanna look like a two wheeled rolling mid life crisis in undersized lycra. Malachi reckoned he was a bit of a  ‘luddite’ when his computer died and he returned my emailed questions hand written on scraps of paper.  I disagree. I don’t think he’s opposed to technological change,  more-so that he is, like a lot of us, not opposed to an analogue world.
