Nelson has the only purpose built 4x track in NZ I think. Maybe Roto but dunno. Hardtail 9speed light DJ bike, or 80-100mm full sus DJ bike. Yeti 4x, Kona Howler, Specialized SX, Spank Puff, bikes like them.

Welly track isn't an ideal race track for 4x as it is very tight with 4 riders. It is mint for training/having fun and racing dual slalom if its taped right. Getting a bit overgrown though haha.

Yeah, fixxored. I was going to get into it buy and got the bike etc.. then realised there's pretty much no 4x scene in NZ. So i'm selling the frame and getting a hardtai DJ.
