7.1 Earth Quake In New Zealand
Well woke up today to hear there was a 7.1 Earth Quake In Christchuch, The home of Niner Bikes in New Zealand.
Sounds like there is some major damage down there & hope everyone down there is ok.
Sounds like only 2 people with major cuts & it was 8 hours ago now so they are still checking the damage.
Hope Allan & family are well.
Thanks for your concern Murray. I am happy to report that we are fine and as far as I am aware no Niners have been harmed in the quake. A bit of carnage in the warehouse but no serious damage as far as I can tell. Our biggest dealer, Basic Bikes in Beckenham looks like it is ok but the building that houses the shop across the road (Beckenham Cycles) looks pretty banged up. A couple of the bigger shops in the city look like they have suffered major damage as well. Pretty scary quake, definitely a Wfo9 level event (to give a little Niner context) but thankfully no reports of loss of life so far.
I thought that lots of blocks may have fallen on your old bikes Ha Ha
Good to hear your fine.
If you want somewere safe to store any Niners just send them to me, I'm 43% sure I won't ride them at the 12 hour MTB in Taupo next weekend.
