The Bike was Great!

The Bike was Great!

5 Star rating Outside Sports NZ

I had the pleasure of using the Specialized Stumpjumper 29er on the Millennium Track here in Wanaka. After owning only 26 inch rim mountain bikes, I have finally been converted!


Up until recently, the larger rim bikes’ overall length was too much for my favourite X-country tracks like Deans Bank & around the switch backs by the lake. The larger rims rolled effortlessly and the Stumpjumper was short enough to handle the technical corners. The SHRAM gears shifted smoothly - not just because they were clean! Many of the cables are tucked away nicely inside the durable frame which is reassuring to avoid snags for transporting the bike and riding in the bush.

By far the easiest dual suspension bike I’ve ridden up hill. It’s great to know shock technology has come this far. This bike has truly become the best choice for versatility around all my favourite trails here in the Queenstown Lakes area. 

Head to Outside Sports Wanaka and Queenstown for the latestest range of Specialized Bikes to buy, rent and demo.

"Your feet are the foundation for your entire body. When this foundation is misaligned or functioning poorly the effects can be felt throughout the body, whether in muscle and joint pain or through more serious injuries. Over 75% of the population suffers from overpronation or excessive supination, yet most of us are unaware of our own foot type and how it affects the rest of our body".

"By simply supporting the feet properly overall body alignment can be improved, alleviating pain and helping the body heal itself"- Foot Balance.

FootBalances' innovative products bring you the benefits of custom orthotics at an affordable price.

Queenstown Downhill Series

Queenstown Downhill Series

Race report.

My first round of the Queenstown downhill series and unfortunately my new downhill bike hasn't quite arrived yet, so the trusty Enduro 29 got the call up again. The track was great, a really good mix of new technical riding with some classic flat out bike park sections mixed in as well. I spent most of practise showing Whisky Mike my lines and having fun, unfortunately a crash in my last practise run took the wind out of my sails a bit and left me nursing a sore wrist and unsure if I would be able to hold on for a full run. Turns out I was able to ride and ended up second behind the guy who had been following me most of the morning, dam you Mike! That's two races in a row I've been second to him, looking forward to switching the order in the future if possible.
