Taniwha Update 26/07/2017
Better, stronger, lighter, faster....
Production 3 is complete, the new generation Taniwha are ready to send out!
All three sizes are now compatible with the Pinion CLine gearbox bringing a significant weight reduction to the Taniwha along with increased ground clearance, built in polycarbonate housing guard and chain ring protector.
The Taniwha just got a whole lot better.
Taniwha Update 15/05/2017
Taniwha Update 27/02/2017
The dust has cleared after sending out all of the pre ordered Taniwha and I have a handful of frames left. If you get in now I can have a frame/drive train assembled, packed and on the way to you in a few days
Taniwha Update 16/01/2017
Batch 2 has just arrived. These will be on the way to new owners very soon.
Taniwha Update 08/01/2017
Batch 2 frames and shocks are due to land in NZ next week and will start to ship soon after.
Pre orders placed now will be supplied in the 3rd shipment which I expect to be ready March/April.
Way to much work and not enough play for me right now!
Taniwha Update 7/12/2016
The second production looks to be ready Late Dec/Early Jan.
Busy times in the Zerode Garage!
Taniwha update 23/11/2016
Still waiting for the X2's from FOX. Fingers crossed I get good news very soon!
We still have a handful of frames up for grabs in the second run. With the pilot run out of the way production should be smooth sailing from here on in. ETA for the second run completion is 18th Dec.
Taniwha Pre Order Update 1/11/2016
On that note, I just sold the last medium frame from the second production run. Any mediums ordered now will go into the third production. I don't have an ETA on this run yet as I need to get the 1 st and second run completed first! My best guess would be Feb/March. I'll update this as I get better info.
For you giraffes out there, you will be happy to know the tooling for the XL is now underway...
Taniwha Update 18/10/2016
I'd love that to be the case more than anyone. But we aren't quite there yet! A pilot production run of frames showed up a small area in the Chain stay that wasn't quite moulding correctly. We need to make a small tweak to make sure it is 100%. The good news is we will not send anything out unless it is 100%. The bad news is it will take about 3 we eks to sort this detail, ETA for completion is now 8th Nov.
I'm sure you believe me when I say we are doing everything we can to get these frames out as soon as we can and provide the best information I have with regards timing…
Having retired my old home built bike and moved on to my Taniwha I know you will love yours when you get it! Thanks for your patience...
Taniwha Pre Order Update 04/10/2016
The best info I had before Eurobike had production locked in for Mid Oct. A nasty typhoon knocked out communication with the factory for a few days, but we are on track to have the framescompleted Mid Oct ish.
Add a little shipping, assembly and transport and all of those that ordered a Zerode Taniwha from the first batch won't be waiting too much longer.
Taniwha Pre order Update 25/08/2016
While I'm away the pre ordered frames will be on the production line. The factory has locked in a completion date of 16 Oct. A few weeks later than I hoped, but not a bad result considering the number of ducks I needed to get in a row.
A second production is locked in for Nov completion. Any pre orders made now will be in this batch.
I suspect another production run will be required soon after!
