One of the biggest bicycle manufacturers in the world, Giant, is set to open its doors in Bundaberg.
The open spaces and flat terrain of the Bundaberg Region provide an ideal location for bike riding enthusiasts and Giant Bundaberg owners Adam and Katie Hawkins said they were excited to open the new business.
Adam said, as bike riding increased in popularity across all age groups, E Bikes had also continued to grow as a transport method in general.
“Bundaberg has a very rich history in cycling and has huge depth in triathlon as well,” Adam said.
“Cyclists are becoming more knowledgeable when it comes to purchasing bikes for transport as well.
“E bikes have become a massive part of our customer base and with Giant being one of the biggest EV producers in the world, we certainly have the backing to make sure we are at the front of the technology.”
Adam and Katie are also the owners of Giant Hervey Bay, and the pair said it made sense to branch out and open in the Bundaberg Region.
“We have had a lot of interest from Bundaberg residents at our store in Hervey Bay,” Adam said.
“So, we were keen to make it easier for those customers to get access to the Giant range of products and services.
“We [are] also enjoying coming up from the bay to ride and race with the local clubs and at the velodrome and crit track in town.”
Adam said Giant Bundaberg would have a range of Giant bikes and gear at the store, available to see in the flesh rather than just online.
“We will also have a fully stocked workshop for repairs, as well as access to 3D bike fit technology at the shop,” he said.
“Giant is currently the biggest [manufacturer] of bicycles in the world, having recently celebrated 50 years of building bikes.
“The range of Giant bikes starts at your first 12-inch pre-push bike through to the latest technology in road bikes used by Team BikeExchange on the World Tour.
“We will be stocking everything from kids’ bikes, entry, and top-level E bikes, road and MTB bikes.”
Giant Bundaberg will open its doors at 2, 23 Targo Street on 1 December.
