Kalkhoff Durban Compact G8

What it's built for:
The Durban Compact is the downsized addition to Kalkhoff's entry-level Durban line. It shares the frame design language with their compact Sahel, but makes things more budget-friendly with the Groove Go hub drive motor common to all bikes in the Durban range. It provides reliable shifting with an external 8-speed derailleur, and ups day-to-day utility with a handy front cargo rack.

Why we love it:
Kalkhoff consistently over-delivers on value-for-price with their bikes and the Durban Compact is really where it all begins. It may be their entry-level electric offering, but brings value at every turn and does so on a bike that fits so well into the lives of city dwellers. The compact frame and 20" wheels mean that more people than ever before can fit an ebike into their lives. Plus the robust, useful, and downright fun front-loading cargo rack is a perfect cherry on top.

Though we’re a bike shop that sells, builds and fixes bicycles, they’re really just the means to an end; albeit a beautifully designed means to an idyllic end. Our job most importantly is to encourage as many people as we can to get out and ride for transport and enjoyment. We'd love to make riding a bike as commonplace as your morning cup of coffee, which by the way is our other obsession.

Bicycle Junction is situated at 1 Marion St, Te Aro, Wellington.
