Limited frames due in store March. Get in touch to secure yours.

gday@bicyclejunction.co.nz

The Mehteh is a Reynolds 725 steel gravel frame – a fast and agile drop bar bike, designed for long days in the saddle on varied terrain. Brother have pushed the tyre clearances beyond what you’d find on the average gravel bike giving the option of taking your ride even further off-road. Whether that’s an after work gravel dash or a full blown bikepacking adventure.

The personality of the Mehteh (pronounced /meɪteɪ/) is reflected in its name – a Himalayan word for the mountain dwelling Yeti which literally translates as “Man Beast”!

The Mehteh is constructed out of Reynolds 725 steel; a heat treated tubing famed for its strength and weight saving properties and an ideal material for the challenges of gravel riding and bikepacking. This is now matched with the Brother carbon gravel fork up front – featuring full carbon construction, fender mounts and triple cage mounts on each fork blade. The frame and fork have clearance for up to 650b x 2.1″ or 700c x 45 tyres to help you through the rough stuff.

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.
