Bikeys was founded in 2006 as a small 'hole in the wall' bike repair shop on Peel Street, Gisborne. Founding owner, Alfred Salgado had a simple vision: to help anyone that walked through the door.
Quality workmanship remains our focus to this day. But we've also enhanced the retail experience.
As an independent dealer we hand-pick our brands for their quality and value: Giant, Specialized, Liv and Smart Motion Electric Bikes, to name a few.
With Vicki Tate coming on board as a second director in 2016 and the opening of our new Gladstone Road store, we now offer the ultimate balance between the workshop and the modern retail experience.
In 2018 Alfred moved his family to Rotorua leaving the business in the capable hands of Vicki and husband Adam. The shop remains a family business committed to offering outstanding service to our customers.
We offer a full service bikeshop and bike rental service in Gisborne. We are your local, affordable bike repairs store. We specialise in bike repairs, rental bikes, electric bikes and bike accessories and apparel from top brand names for kids and adults such as Giant, Specialized, Smart Motion, Liv, Haro. We also sell MGP scooters and more.
If it can be fixed, we'll fix it.
