Ladies bike hire - New Zealand

Postby chriskurton » 10 Jun 2017, 11:49am

We want to do a cycle tour in New Zealand but the prospect of getting our bikes to the airport in the UK fills us with dread as well as flying with them.
We were looking at hiring bikes in NZ but cannot seem to find anyone that hires women sized bikes. If you are 5'2" you don't want a mans frame as the reach is all wrong, not to mention crank length or stand over height.
We want to do a reasonable length tour and would need bikes with appropriate gearing!
Has anyone got any suggestions?

You could try
They have 26" wheeled Surly LHTs, implying that they have them in the smaller sizes.

I had a bike from them once for a day ride. they seemed fine, but I didn't require any special services, or anything.
