How does a genuine FirstBIKE compare with other kids bikes?



We often get asked how a genuine FirstBIKE compares to the other brands of children's bikes that you find in the market.
This video give you a great run down of why it's very important to make the right choice when it comes to the kind of bike you decide to start your child on.

New Tern bicycles now available

Tern Node D8
We've been waiting patiently for the brand new Tern Node D8 to arrive in South Africa.



With 24-inch rims and Schwalbe Big Apple tyres, the Node D8 is more than capable enough to tick off the kilometres with ease. Or fold it up and throw it onto the bus or store it in a cupboard when you need to. We rode the Node D8 in Taiwan and a nicer commuter bike you will not find.
As a city bike it really has everything you'll ever need rolled up into one very good looking and well-priced package.

Tern Link C7
Then the Tern Link C7 is a very popular model and our spring stock has also just arrived. We have the Link C7 in the traditional white / blue and in a brand new black / grey option, which is very sexy. The Link C7 now comes with mudguards as standard and the black version also has a BioLogic rack, which comes in very handy when transporting bottles of wine back home after a hard day at the office.

For all the other information you may need on these bikes - have a look at our Tern Bicycles page here.

The Ride James Massiah - presented by Levi's Commuter



The first in a series of short films presented by Levi's Commuter has been released. Starting it off is James Massiah who lives in London and uses his bicycle to efficiently get around the city. It also doesn't hurt that he loves the feeling of connectedness and independance riding the bike in the city gives him too.

"It definitely is an extension of my soul. Things that connect together… It gives you the ability to travel through time. You're completely open to the elements and you can feel the wind blowing past your face … That's the true magic of being on a bike. It is like the urban horse. A cowboy needs his horse, I need my bike."

Flamingo alley


Nice idea the City of Cape Town has here - putting a tranquil lagoon complete with breakfast eating flamingos and Artic Terns right next to the West Coast bike lane. 

Wildlife experiences are BTW free with every ride on your bicycle.

Kwaai bike


'Kwaai bike...and it keeps you fit' - overheard while riding through the Cape Town CBD this morning. 

When you ride a bicycle in the city you suddenly feel like a critical part of what makes that city tick. You breathe the air, feel the breeze in your face, chat to friendly strangers who are also commuting on their bikes through the streets. The characters of the city become heroes in the story of your morning and all of this simply at the cost of freeing your mind to the possibility.
