Godzone – go team Slice of Heaven!

by Casey Brown

“Welcome to our team 'Slice of Heaven'! We are pretty much 4 people that love running and exploring and somehow managed to talk ourselves into this crazy bloody race. Made up of 2 mums, a track guide and a personal trainer we simply hope not to be short coursed and cross the finish line talking to each other. 


With ultra off road running as our backgrounds the thought of sitting on a bike grinding up large climbs wasn't too appealing to begin with. Battling our way through on 10-15year old bikes made initial stages of training really tough! And then came the Ruze Expert 6Fattie.... we love , love, love our fatties! They are like sitting  on a lazy boys. Great mobility on single downhill trails, will beat any 29 up hill, roll efficiently on the road and are easy on the butts off road. 


Follow our 3 fatties and a skinny around the unknown course starting on Feb 25th! We are team #73. Yell loudly if you see us going around in circles....

Thanks Outside Sports Te Anau and Andy's Bike Shop for looking after us and our bikes!!

Specialized Ruze 6 Fattie Review

 Specialized Ruze Fattie Outside Sports NZ

After hearing how stoked our customer, Belinda was with her new bike, we thought we'd ask her some questions to review the Specialized Ruze 6Fattie for you.

How have you enjoyed your new bike?

My new bike has been used to get to and from work, have a great burst of exercise on, ride over tracks to visit friends, meeting up with a group of enthusiastic riders and a new diligence for washing down and oiling the chain after a ride, when I need too!

What sort of riding are you doing/where have you been riding?

I ride along the tracks around the lake and around the district. Using some of our mountain trails and learning about the new ones to try out.


Are you riding more?

I enjoy any opportunity to be on it because the sense of freedom from traffic congestion and connecting with the outdoors are so much more realistic on a bike. The winding down time riding home after a busy day’s work are sublime.

What improvements have you noticed compared to your old bike?

My new Specialized Ruze 6 with fat tyres is awesome. The gears are easy to change, with a tap of the thumb, brakes are great, tyres make dirt tracks smooth and the seat is slick and very comfortable.

Do you enjoy biking any more?

Biking can only ever be GOOD for YOU

Get one new, bright and BLUE

Ride those trails for a BLAST

Pedal to work, be first not LAST


What is your favourite feature of the new bike?

The ease of riding it, colour, wheels, gears, handlebars all make for special features.


Any other comments?

The sales person showed an understanding for my needs and biking requirements.
