About Velo-Ideale


Velo-Ideale is a Christchurch, New Zealand based company that specialises in supplying a variety of practical, custom and classically-styled bicycles, components and accessories to accommodate the need for high-quality non-competition cycling supplies in NZ.

From nipping down to the park on your trusty Civia or Pashley, to global adventures on your expedition bicycle, we have a passion for cycling as a way of life, not just as a sport.

As Chris from Velo Orange put it so well: "Most cyclists don't race, yet they ride uncomfortable racing bikes and try to go too fast and so miss much of the world around them. Our emphasis is on a more relaxed and comfortable style of riding, and on refined bikes that are comfortable on a century ride, an inn-to-inn tour, or even on a ramble down your favorite dirt road."

We also stock many otherwise hard to find components and accessories for re-building or modifying older sports and utility bicycles.

Bike shops, please contact us for reseller discounts.

I can still remember that day in the 1960's when my late father let go of my seat and I was no longer wobbling along a quiet road in Raumati Beach. I discovered a freedom that has grown over the decades and will never be taken for granted. That was fifty years of urban and adventure cycling ago. May you discover the same joyous freedom!
