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!!

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.
