Why buy a Specialized?

The frame is the single most important factor in a bike's ride quality. While there are many other components involved, the frame is what ties it all together and ultimately determines how well a bike rides. Specialized makes the highest quality, most sorted frame on the market. The fit and finish is excellent and they ride amazing.

Why buy from us?

We're your local Christchurch bike shop. When you buy from us you get the best support, fast. You don't have to email customer service and hope for a response, just come in and see us. We keep a ton of parts in stock and have mechanics that are trained up on all the latest tech in a modern workshop.

Free General Service

Bikes need regular maintenance but we're here to help. To guarantee that your new bike stays running sweet, we offer a free General Service on all bikes that we sell. Worth $89, we'll do your first one for free at 6 months of ownership. Note that while the General Service labour is free, additional labour or parts cost extra. Bookings are required.

Best Warranty

Specialized is confident with their quality and has one of the bike industry's best warranties out there. Frames and Roval wheels have a lifetime warranty and are transferrable to a subsequent owner, who then get 2 years from the original retail purchase date. We have very few come back with problems and the ones that do are sorted quickly.
