Moustache

Moustache Samedi XRoad 5 Open

What it's built for:
The Samedi Xroad series from Moustache offers riders a type of bike that simply couldn't have existed before the electric revolution. In their souls, all Samedis really are mountain bikes, with their 27.5" wheels and active suspension, but thanks to the pep from their Bosch Performance Line motors they are equally capable as day-to-day commuters that encourage you to take the road less traveled at every turn. This Xroad 5 variant provides riders with a lower step frame option complete with a build kit perfectly suited to the demands of daily riding. Before the advent of ebikes you mostly had to choose between a commuter and a mountain bike, well the Samedi Xroad was built to change the game. 

Why we love it:
There are an almost dizzying number of bikes in the Samedi range, each built for a different rider. The Open Xroad 5 sets itself apart with its included suite of commuter-friendly accessories like a robust fender and rack system, integrated lights, and full-wrap chain guard to keep your pant legs safe. While many cross-road bikes are just hybrids dressed up to handle some off-pavement use the Samedi was built the other way around, it's a mountain bike geared up for the needs of day-to-day use. But in the end, wide open trails call this bike's name, and if they call yours too this is probably the bike for you.

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.
