Yeah, Shepard's industries NZ. They used to be the Specalized dealers in NZ but after a lawsuit filed against them by Specalized for "stealing" some of their design and incorporating them into their Avanti designs the relationship quickly turned sour and Specalized set up their own NZ distribution and picked up Scott.

He cannot remove his quote, even if he wanted to, when you quote it yourself.

Not needing to quote the post above notwithstanding.



That's bollocks, and likely defamatory, so you'd be better taking it down.

Relationship was already sour so there were lawsuits going both ways

Here is the finished product,

The new Avanti Corsa Genesys Team Edition,

(Except this is missing a couple of late sponsor arrivals: and Avanti Zero seat and speedplay pedals)

Will be great with the 404 race wheels in 8)

After racing against the Pure Black guys a bit this year, I reckon it looked best in the all black scheme. But this still looks pretty nice.

New team bikes? I was wondering why some of you were selling your Malvern Star's on another forum...
I write the weightweenies blog, hope you like it :)

Disclosure: I'm sponsored by Velocite, but I do give my honest opinion about them (I'm endorsed to race their bikes, not say nice things about them)

Yeh whole new fleet.

Although the bikes would have been sold anyway even if we were staying on Malvern Stars, we just got a bit more organised this year to get this years bikes sold.. Otherwise you leave it till after nationals and then, bam, it's august already and NRS is in full swing and etc etc
