Recently we sold the 300th Airdrop Edit. As milestones go, it's not massive but it did cause me to think and take stock a little bit. I did some analysis on who's bought them and where, so I thought I'd share that. Warning: may contain geek stats.
This is my personal bike. I spend a lot of time testing new things and trying out different setups, so I don't always have my 'own' bike and the spec tends to change, but right now this is what I'm riding. And I love it. Read More
A stealth Edit v2 built around an orange Fox SLS spring? Yes please. Kris asked us to put together this beauty of a custom build and we were very happy to oblige...
Last week we launched the Airdrop Bitmap
, our new alloy hardtail. It's had a great response, so we though it would be good to get some insight into how we designed and developed it.
Custom builds are what we do best at Airdrop Bikes. Alice had a special request: she wanted a bike built to her very own spec with one-off custom decals of her own design. Working with Merge Decals we made it happen. Read More

Longer, Lower, Slacker! The current industry buzz words. What I like to call the Kool-Aid. It’s a phrase we hear a lot, whether that’s next year's bike launch, industry moguls preaching radical ideas or media journo’s praising the latest and greatest. For me its starting to wear thin. And I wonder have we gone too far? Read More
Pang AKA the "Huck Wizard" is a co-owner of Vertigo Bikes Queenstown and my old boss. Pang has one of the few Edits in the Southern Hemisphere and certainly knows a few things about how to build a sick bike, so we take a look at why Pang built his Edit the way he did. Read More
Every day is Independence Day at Airdrop Bikes. OK, so we’re not out on the lawn at the crack of dawn raising the flag, but it is important, and here’s why.
We love a custom build at Airdrop Bikes, so when Ethan asked us to help him build a bike to race in this year's Scottish Enduro series, we were well up for it. With a mix of Cane Creek suspension and finishing kit from Burgtec and Hope, this is a good one.
