Dunedin Balance Bike Championships

Parents and toddlers enjoyed a really fun balance bike event last Saturday at the Dunedin BMX club track. There were categories for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. Not all the kids really understood the point of it, but that didn't seem to matter. Everyone had a great time and I think all the kids slept extra well that night! We sponsored the event and gave away a free Cruzee balance bike, as riding by Jasper in the photos/video. Anyone interested in one should come in soon, as we have a few left at the promo price of $150 (normally $189).

Hammerhead Demo Bikes are here!

Joel has finished building up our new Hammerhead 130x Demo Bikes - check out the photos below: We've got one medium with Deore/SLX build, and one large with awesome SRAM XX1 kit.  In case you didn't already know, the Hammerhead 130x bikes were developed with the help of local riders down here in Dunedin and were originally named Thumper. Our 130xs are the last frames before Hammerhead rebrand themselves as Switchback, meaning we can offer them at an incredible price - only $1199 for frame, or $1899 for frame and fork! Builds start from $3199. If you're after a demo ride, give us a ring on 03 4777 396, send us an email on sales@bikeotago.co.nz, or just pop into our shop...
