CYCLE HIRE

Bike It Now offers a fleet of high-spec primarily 29er bikes, designed in New Zealand by Avanti. Bikes are designed for comfort and reliability and to meet the demands of riding the cycleways and trails of New Zealand's South Island.

Our fleet of 29 inch Montari (for the men) and Forte (for the ladies) bikes offer a relaxed, neutral riding position with high quality, lightweight aluminium frames.

Bike seats have plush padding and a 'zone cut' through the middle for comfort. Our saddles are male and female specific and we add at no extra cost a dual density gel seat cover for those who like an additional layer of comfort. Ergonomic grips on the handle bars keep wrists and hands happy on gravel trails. For safety, reliability and performance, we’ve added Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, 27 speed Deore Shimano components and puncture resistant tyres. Each bike also has a bottle holder, a tool kit, Cateye Velo 7 Bike Computer and spare tube. We also supply a helmet or you can bring your own.
