Our good friends at Easy Motion have some big news; they’re now the official distributor of BH Bikes in South Africa. Now we might sound a little biased, but given that they started out bringing a few BH electric bicycles into SA last year and have only ever advertised in Full Sus we feel we owe them a bit of bias!
Basque based BH or, Beistegui Hermanos, started out life as a gun manufacturer in 1909 and switched to bicycles after the First World War. They’ve been distributed in SA before, but on the back of the success of their electric bike sales they decided to hand the full local agency over to Easy Motion.
They’ll be bringing in a range of BH’s mountain and road bike offerings, with our favourite being the Lynx 4.8 Carbon 29″ 9.7 – featuring a Shimano XT 2 x 11 drivetrain, FOX suspension (front and rear) with remote lock-out and BH’s Split Pivot rear suspension layout. Another exciting bike, albeit a road machine, is the BH G7 Disc, a disk brake equipped aero bike. We’ll be testing the MTB models soon so keep an eye on Full Sus for more information, or drop by the concept store at 228 Main Road, Diep River, Cape Town. Or if you’re from elsewhere in the country visit their website at www.bhsouthafrica.co.za.
