December 2008

Well its been a busier time than we could have hoped for at BASIC.  Christmas came round faster than we thought, the workshop has been busy, new stock for the 09 season has arrived  from GT and Santa Cruz. 

The sun is shining most of the time, the tracks are all in good condition, a big thanks to all those volunteers who make the Port Hills tracks what they are today!  Lets hope the rest of the summer is good and we can all get out and ride.

We now have a good selection of demo bikes available from Santa Cruz, GT and Commencal.  If you want to try some contact us for the details.


New Nomad Lrg with DHX Ti Coil Shock

Fox Talas 36 RC2 1.5 Forks

Industry Nine Wheelset

XTR, Saint, Xt components.

From the SC Catalogue:

Freshly redesigned, reaping the benefits of next generation VPP technology, the all-new Nomad further messes up the boundaries between trail riding and gravity performance. 160mm rear travel meets 1.5″ headtube and ISCG05 chainguide mounts in a lightweight but aggressive aluminum frame. Newly revised shock rates, grease ports in the lower link, carbon fiber upper link, 15mm diameter pivot axles rolling on angular contact bearings are part of the plush, stable, flex free design. So, what is it? A heavy-duty trail bike? The new all-mountain contender? Freeride lite? Yes.

Our 2 cents, SC Have made a great bike even better!

Our best selling bike, and also one our most durable and dependable rides, the LT received a complete redesign this year. The next generation VPP incorporates revised shock rates, grease pivots in the lower links, carbon fiber upper links, 15mm diameter pivot axles and angular contact bearings into a completely new suspension design. Featuring 140mm rear wheel travel, the aluminum chassis is sweet handling and confidence inspiring.
