The Story of a Bike Emporium
“Live...don’t what if”
Our story starts with a young cyclist who grew the creation of a New Zealand Bike Emporium…
Founded in a time pre-internet, email and even faxes! A classic phone call, snail mail or a face to face visit were the ways of contacting a store. Originally, Scotty Browns was a first of its time, full color mail order bicycle catalogue. Blowing the competition away with world’s leading road bike brands and pricing. Driven by a persistent passion for both cycling and delivering unbelievable personal service, the success of Scotty Browns breathes strong, and the birth of the Bike Emporium begun.
Now 30 years strong, we have built our pedigree as a premium road cycling store, with a progressive edge as a mountain bike retailer. Building a strong and reputable mountain biking culture. Above all, service remains as our uppermost cornerstone and you’ll feel this the second you walk in the store. Whether you are purchasing your first bike, building a bike of your dreams or stopping in for a full service of your trusty rig. We fulfil any service from wheel building, suspension rebuilding, and bike fitting as if it were our own. The culture and exuberant passion from our team are the reason you’ll keep coming back.
Passion comes from the heart, so our shop offerings are exclusive to products that we would use and believe in. The cycling world is simply that, a world, full of choices beyond our comprehension!

Plain and simple biking makes us smile and sharing that joy with our customers makes us smile even more!
