Bike library open for business !

Today Biketec successfully achieved its main goal "young people out on the trail" We had great fun,  some trail carnage, a few scrapes and a machine complaint or two but we have arrived Wainuiomata!

Prepped and ready to roll!
New lids, thanks to Cycle Science.

Fun and games and fat-biking at Petone

We had a great time at the Petone Festival.

Thanks for the loot!

We have had a heap load of awesome donations to Biketec recently.
Some cool loot from Paul Kennett, Andy Kerr, Simon Crumpton, Bernie Cruise, Ben Copsey and Craig Butler most recently.

Our goal is to build up bikes that we can throw kids on in a mountainbike park or on the trails. Some bikes will be stripped down just for parts for upcoming builds.
Thanks again to all you guys!

Cyclo cross bike number 2 !

Maybe we'll call this one number 2 ! We got heaps of new stuff donated to us which enabled us to get another CX rig rolling. Ben Copsey gave us heaps of good loot including that lovely Titanium railed saddle ! Sparkly white bar tape from Oli at Roadworks, shifters from Jeremy Bray, tires from Andre Oliver (now on the Brown Bomber). The rest of the stuff came from various bins in at Biketec : )  This bike is booked for race B, (in Huttcross round 4 on sunday, as is the Brown Bomber, but both bikes are also available for race C and A !!   Maybe bring your own brush and water!

Would you like to ride this bike in Huttcross#2?

Do you know someone who wants to give the next round of the Huttcross Cyclo-cross series a go on a Cross bike? The guys at Biketec have built up the "Brown Bomber" just for this purpose. Its a medium with a sloping top-tube so it should fit a fair few different sized riders.  Email us on if you are keen.
