Christmas is coming in hawt!! And now is the time to start thinking about getting your loved one that new bike organised for Christmas morning. Lay-by’ing a bike is a great way to ensure you get the exact bike you want for that special someone come Christmas morning. It also means you can pay it off over time and don’t have to stress keeping the bike hiden from them.
We’ve answered a few of the most frequently asked questions we get about lay-bys around the Christmas period.
What deposit is required?
A 20% deposit is required to lay-by a bike.
How often do I have to make payments?
We ask for fortnightly payments over the course of your lay-by and payments can be made either over the phone or instore.
How long can you store the bike for?
We will be open until 2pm on Christmas Eve, so we can hold onto the bike until then. If you pay off the bike early we can still hold onto it – no sweat!
Do the bikes come assembled?
Of course they do! Santa’s little helpers will be working tirelessly to ensure every bike is put together to the highest standards so your loved one can enjoy their new wheels Christmas day. Want any accessories? We can install them too.
We hope this has cleared a few things up. But if you have any more questions shoot us an email, call us or pop into the shop and the team will be happy to give you a hand.

A little extra boost can lead to incredible possibilities. When you ride an electric bike, there is no ride too long, no hill to steep and no place your legs can’t take you. Ditch the daily traffic jam, get more exercise and feel great about treading more lightly on the planet. And best of all – have a ton of fun along the way.
How do e-bikes work?
E-bikes are not electric motorcycles. They don’t have a throttle and they require your input to make them move forward. E-bikes use pedal-assist motors, so your effort level determines how much power the motor gives you back. Riding an e-bike is incredibly intuitive and if you can ride a normal bike you can most definitely ride an electric bike.
How fast can an e-bike go?
In Australia, E-Bikes are governed to 25km/h. This means you can still ride them on shared bicycle and walking paths. It keeps everyone safe and extends the run time of your battery.
How far can they go?
The size of the battery, terrain and assistance level of the motor will determine how far you can ride your e-bike. Most e-bikes will get between 40-180km in a single charge.
What e-bikes do we sell?
We sell Trek, Giant, Cannondale, Merida and Specialized e-bikes. All are slightly different but all offer premium battery and motor combination. There are so many e-bikes on the market and it can often be extremely confusing and very hard to make a decision about what bike you should buy – but that’s why we’re here. We have a team of knowledgable staff that will help you wade through the e-bike jargon and get you on the right e-bike.
