smiley faces

Chris and Darleen packed up their lives in Brussels and moved to Waiheke Island in search of smiley faces and a school where their kids could go barefoot.  That sorted, they turned their attention to starting the right business.


Rob Vaasen started eCyclesNZ 12 months prior, renting out e-bikes to visitors to Waiheke Island.  The face-splitting, yiharr! smiles from whizzing up them hills no sweat were enough to convince Darleen and Chris that they'd found their next adventure.


January 2015 saw the BULLITT cargo bike arrive to NZ shores. 


In March 2015, we opened in Newmarket - mixing Bikes and Barbers.
