Journeys Central OtagoJourneys Central OtagoWe're very excited to support Journeys Central Otago, with a $500 donation towards their new vertical bike racks.

Journeys is a grassroots charitable trust which empowers girls through adventure in their local wild places.  They have a welcoming and supportive female only environment so that girls feel safe and can have a go at new challenges.

This is an awesome programme which introduces young girls to mountain biking & the outdoors.  They only have 14 days left to raise the funds needed for their new bike racks, which will allow 50 girls, 13 female instructors and others in the community to get out and adventure around Central Otago on mountain bikes. Journeys is currently at 64% of their fundraising target.

Help us make sure they get to 100%, otherwise all the money goes back to their supporters.

Information and details on how to donate are over here.

Wheel Building

 Biken  1 September 2020 4:08:36 pm NZST
Wheels are everywhere.  Every unicycle has one and every bicycle has two.

 Biken  1 September 2020 3:52:51 pm NZST
The JUnit range was born when the Hayes product development team couldn't find high-quality components for their kids.  They developed a legit line of performance youth products.

JUnit components feature youth sized 20” and 24” suspension from Manitou, SUNringlé wheels, hydraulic brakes from Hayes with smaller levers, and a unique handlebar/grip system from ProTaper, specifically tailored for youth-sized hands.

Check out the video to see the JUnit range in action.Read More
