Here at Jake's, we're excited about Twizel's new Alps 2 Ocean cycle trail, and we think you should be too. The new trail is predicted to be as popular as the Central Otago Rail Trail, and we're here to support it from the start.

We have a rapidly-expanding cycling section, and we aim to cater for all your needs as you travel the A2O. Our range includes many accessories and parts, and if there's something we don't have we can usually get it to you in as little as 24 hours.

We also offer a comprehensive array of maintenance and repair services, to keep you safely on the road or trail. Roll on in!

Accessories

One simply does not go biking without accessories. It would be like driving a car without doors.

Here at Jake's, we have just about every cycling accessory you could name, from the functional to the glamorous. We'll help you keep up with both the race leader and the Joneses.

Helmets: We stock helmets of every size, for anyone aged zero or over (under-zeroes are not served at Jake's). Helmets are available in a variety of colours and styles.

Bottles and bottle holders: Available in a wide range of colours and styles, including insulated bottles to keep your drink cool even during Twizel's blazing summer.

We also have a range of other accessories, including pumps, bike locks, bike racks, bike stands, spoke beads, pedal blocks and training wheels. And if you want something that we don't have, we can usually get it for you in less than 48 hours!

Tools & Repairs

Bikes are great when they work. Here at Jake's, we like great things, so we do our best to keep your bike running smoothly.

We have a range of tools for carrying out all but the most specialised maintenance and repairs on your bike. We have Allen keys, pliers, screwdrivers, spanners and other tools in the Hardware section, and bike tools such as spoke wrenches and chain tools right here in the cycling section.

For repairing and replacing Tyres & Tubes we have repair kits, patches, tube glue and tyre levers.

To keep things like your chain, gears and wheels running smooth as glass, we sell a range of chain lubes, oils and, of course, CRC.

If you are not confident in repairing your bike, or simply too busy, we can carry out a range of repairs for you. For more information, see the Services sub-category.

Tyres & Tubes

Punctures happen. We're sorry, but that's just how it is. But it doesn't really matter if they happen in Twizel, because the team at Jake's Hardware have a huge range of tyres and inner tubes available to get you back on the road in no time.

We have tubes in all the standard sizes such as 26", 29" and 700c, as well as plenty of less common ones. All sizes are available in various widths, and with either Schrader (car) or French (high-pressure) valves.

We also have various speciality tubes - ultra light racing tubes and heavy duty thorn-resistant tubes, for example.

If you suffer a major puncture, you may need to replace an entire tyre. The good news is that the team at Jake's stock a wide range of tyres in nearly every size. We have tyres for mountain bikes, road bikes, racing bikes and children's bikes, and if you need a size that we don't have, we can usually get it for you in as little as 24 hours.

Parts

A bicycle is nothing but a collection of parts working smoothly together. Here at Jake's, you can expand and improve that collection with ease.

We stock a range of parts, including chains, spokes, brake levers, brake cables and handlebar grips. We also have a range of bicycle seats, ranging from the gloriously soft to the intensely aerodynamic. Our range includes a selection of GelTech seats.

And, as with many of our other cycling products, if you need something which we don't have, we can usually get it to you in one 24-hour day!

Services

Our range of repair services is now very comprehensive, with all but the most unusual of problems being able to be fixed by Jake himself while you wait or overnight.

Our standard range of services includes everything from puncture repairs to disc brake pad replacement, and we can carry out much more specialised repair tasks as well. And in addition to fixing specific problems, Jake specialises in general inspections and tunings to make any bike run like new.
