When travelling any cycle trail, the right gear is critical. There's obvious stuff such as your helmet (the cooler, the better), shoes (comfortable is good), and biking bodysuit (please make sure it fits). There's slightly more advanced equipment, like mounted water bottles, bike computers, special lights, locks, gizmos, and the like. Then there's the essential gear, including the right bike for the job. Having a bicycle that fits the terrain you're riding makes whatever journey you're on that much more enjoyable. No one understands this better than Cycle Surgery, as we've designed the very first custom bike for a specific path, the Central Otago Cycle Trail. Through painstaking research and study of the trail, we've created a complete package cycle with maximum quality and comfort in mind. Other cycles may get you down the Otago Cycle Trail, but only ours will get you down there like this.
The secret is in the specific design. We've included features required for braving the path, like gel cushioned seats to combat annoying chaffing. The raised handlebars are easily accessed and have superior comfort grips so your hands won't get tired while riding. We incorporated durable centre-ridge tyres for a smoother, safer ride, and ultra light wheels that make climbing hills a breeze. Our disc brakes located on the front and rear wheels offer an advanced level of control, and the chain guard we've installed helps to prevent serious injury. We've even included a unisex step-through style frame, which makes getting on and off the bike a snap.
It doesn't just end there, though. When renting a bike, we hook you up with the proper accessories as well. Panniers for carrying your belongings, Shimano Pedaling Dynamics (SPD) pedals (basically clipless pedals that serve as an alternative to toestraps and shoeplates), comfortable helmets to protect your melon, a handy repair kit and air pump for handling tyre punctures, and a nifty bottle cage to accommodate your hydration of choice.
Don't forget; we also have a nice selection of tandem bikes, kids bikes, kid trailers, and luggage trailers to fit your specific cycle trail needs.
