This is what it's all about *biking!*

Hi neighbours, maybe you're wondering what Revolution Bikes is all about. Well in a nutshell we're a friendly local bike shop and we've chosen to specialise in ebikes and mountain bikes.

That can be confusing for some folks when they see that we also sell kids bikes and other types of bikes like pathway bikes too! Trust us, it's like this - our focus is on quality products, personal service, and knowing our industry and what local families need.

We know the local riding conditions, and we know the best type of bikes for that, and after owning Revolution Bikes since 21 December 2009, we know what people are looking for and which of their needs we want to meet.

This means we don't try to be the cheapest source of bikes. We are the best, not the cheapest. I'll write more about this in a separate post perhaps, but I suspect people who only want the cheapest have already switched off!

So I'll put up a few of our favourite ebike photos, these bikes are ones that meet our expectation of quality and price, e.g. good value for money, worth paying for, utilising quality and current technology, comfortable and attractive, and something we recommend to our friends and our parent's friends.

You can find all these bikes on our website, just look in whatever category e.g. Leisure e-bikes, or e-mountain bikes to find them.

As always, when you want to talk about bikes please get in contact (phone, email, website, facebook messenger, or from a few meters away at the store!)

Biking is Not Cancelled in Level 3!

Billie Sue from Revolution Bikes

Hi friends and neighbours, many of you have been reaching out to us for help with your biking needs, and we are so glad that we can help you now that NZ is in Level 3.

Hi friends and neighbours, many of you have been reaching out to us for help with your biking needs, and we are so glad that we can help you now that NZ is in Level 3.

Of course like most businesses we've turned our usual way of trading on it's head.

- Our website is receiving orders again and we are shipping them with the couriers who are doing a great job of staying contactless.

- You can order on the website and choose to click and collect in a contactless way at our Havelock North store, there is no fee for this at all.

- Lots of recent inquiries are random and won't find an answer easily on the website (sometimes you just want to talk to a real person right?) - so phone us at the shop on 8778477 and we'll help you out. There are a lot of kids birthdays happening at the moment and we can usually sort out your needs pretty quickly with a chat.

- Our workshop is OPEN. Bring your bike to the side door where you can park it in the stand provided and one of our staff will write the service ticket for it. We will wash it outside before it's allowed into the workshop.

- The showroom is closed for browsing under level 3. Luckily we have a massive amount of space at our side door to allow for social distancing requirements, so we can talk you through what you need from many meters away.

- All payments are contactless (you cannot enter the shop to use eftpos or cash). To facilitate this we email you an invoice to pay online by bank transfer. We can also take credit card payments over the phone (note there is a small fee for CC transactions).

- We are offering bike home pick up and delivery for locals if you need repairs and are unable to get to the shop under level 3. There is a small fee for this.

All staff are well, and we want to stay that way, so please follow the government directives and stay at home if you are unwell or are self isolating!

Be well,
Billie Sue @ Revolution Bikes

Hi everyone, and thanks to the Neighbourly team for the offer of a premium business listing for Revolution Bikes!

We really appreciate the opportunity to spread the word about our bike shop. Being closed during Level 4 was a painful exercise, so like many local businesses we're reaching out to our community now that we can trade again. We've had lots of messages from locals during the shut down and we are so pleased to be able to help everyone again now in Level 3.

I'll make a seperate post about how we're operating under level 3, but for now just wanted to sign off with a big 'Hi' and leave you with a photo of some of the team, that I love, it was taken by one of our regular local riders Adrien J. and originally posted on our Instagram page (@revolutionbikesnz)

As you can probably tell the photo was taken in pre-covid19 days - back when we could hang out shoulder to shoulder. We miss that life!

Signing off
Billie Sue @ Revolution Bikes
