Bikes available for all levels and all ages from toddler to adult
“Our vision is that Westport Bike Shop will be the go to place for your child’s first bike. This is to encourage children to get active from an early age and to share the positive benefits associated with physical exercise and fitness.” – Loraine (Shop Manager)
Toddlers – Balance Bike
The “Balance Bike” is a great introduction and first learning bike for your toddler. It has no chain and is propelled simply by your child pushing with his/her legs touching the ground so it is a great way to build balance, confidence and stability before moving onto a peddled bike.
The next step up is our ‘Kids Bike’ range. These bikes appeal to our younger riders as they come in a range of styles and colours for boys and girls.
These are an ideal compromise in terms of comfort (associated with sturdy robust mountain bike) and speed (associated with racer/road bike) for both leisurely cycles and more routine activity such as cycling to school or work. These bikes have a full compliment of gears, mid-width tyres and strong frames.
At Westport Bike Shop we specialise in Road Bikes. We race bikes so we understand and have first hand experience of the demands imposed on these bikes.
We stock recognised brands such as Trek, Scott. Cannondale, Fuji and Lapierre.
If you’re looking for a fast bike which is responsive, light weight with sharp lines then these bikes should be your first choice.
Mountain Bikes are rugged machines, big tyres and grips, well geared for ease of climbing, and suspension for those steep and heavy descents. Mountain Bikes are also equipped with responsive braking systems.
There are different specifications depending on ones intended interests and level of activity. ‘Hard Trail’ Suspension front wheel only or Full Suspension (front and back wheel) are both available.
BMX Bikes are making a real comeback and were hugely popular with stunt and track enthusiasts. They are easily recognisable with low saddle position and small but strong frame. With the development of skate parks BMX is becoming popular again and has a strong a community of enthusiasts.
We are excited to introduce our Trek Fat Bikes. These bikes make a statement with their wide tyres and are perfect for going over soft ground such as bog, sand, mud and snow so are perfect for all year around.
