Welcome to Active Bikes. Based in New Plymouth, we offer New Zealand riders a custom build service for titanium bikes, and at a cost comparable to off-the-shelf midrange carbon bikes.

Active Bikes (NZ) Ltd. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Thomas Dodd and Associates Ltd., a company established by Joel Dodd in 2000 primarily to offer environmental consultancy services. The company ethos of solutions for a better environment led to the creation of Active Bikes to encourage and promote cycling in New Zealand through an economic personalised design and build service.

Why Titanium? With a strength similar to steel but with a weight similar to aluminium, titanium frames weigh the same as carbon frames, and provide an exceptional ride quality and lifetime. Under normal usage, titanium frames will not break, crack or corrode. The high prices traditionally associated with titanium frames is no longer a factor.
