Kia ora from Aotearoa

Hello from New New Zealand. Kia ora and Aotearoa are a Māori greeting and name for New Zealand.

My partner and I live outside the capitol city of Wellington in Porirua. We have a total of 8 bikes between us. A tandem, 2 road bikes, 2 mtbs, two utility and 1 fixed gear.

The tandem is a Silverback 3x9 flatbar. Mtbs are a 90 Fisher 3x7, 2007 Giant 3x8, Utilities are both Reid(Australian brand, Taiwan made) 1x7 46x14-28 hybrid w/a B17, Basil bell, Iberra trunkbag and 1x8 Reid upgraded step through w/a basket and rack. Upgrades include 8 sp twistgrip, 38t crankset, 14-34t fw, Brooks B17S saddle and Basil bell and panniers. Roadies are both Avantis. 2009 3x8 53-39-3012-32, w/105 comps and 1993 2x8 53-42x12-25, w105 comps. The fg is a Viva Legato Taiwanese cromoly from Evocycles. Upgrades include seapost rack, leather grips, Basil brass bell(LOUD and rings forever), Cygolite Hotshot, B17, u-lock, frame pump.

The two utilities and fg see the most work. The tandem is used the least as we're still in the learning stage on it. It's a whole different world. lol

Well, that's us. Hope to hear back from from you. Cheers.

Welcome GhenghisKahn . I travelled to NZ about 10 years ago, and if I could pick any country in the world to relocate, that would be it. Wonderful place.
