Supporting Our Innovators

In today’s fast evolving world, the way we purchase a new quality bike is changing. The traditional approach of visiting multiple shops to find the bike that suits your needs is over and more time is spent reviewing every element and building a bike to match your riding. However, having a trusted advisor – such as a good quality bike mechanic – is still important for most.

With six successful years as an Aro Valley staple, and four as a Santa Cruz, Juliana and Ibis agent, Wellington-based shop Dirt Merchants is moving back to its roots – from May 2018, Dirt Merchants will be a mobile van service.

Santa Cruz Bike Archive

Santa Cruz Bike Archive

Santa Cruz Bicycles now have an extensive Bike Archive with exploded diagrams of all parts and instructions for maintenance and replacement.

This is a pretty handy tool when bikes from the very first produced by Santa Cruz in 1994 and Juliana Bicycles in 1999 are still going strong on the trails.

We carry most parts in stock (test us on your Tazmon).
