The Summer of More

More daylight. More sunshine. More friends and family. More time for riding. More exploring. More pedal-powered adventures. More roads less travelled. More coffee stops and post ride beers. More fun. The South African summer is here and it’s a Season of more. Chainworx is here to help you make all of that happen more often.


Festive Season Trading Hours

With the holidays upon us and opportunities for those ‘pedal-powered adventures’ more frequent, it’s important to minimize your bike servicing time, and your Xmas shopping time, so you can maximise your riding time, and your family time too!

With that in mind, here’s a handy table of our trading days and hours during the 2015 / 2016 festive period. Should you require any assistance outside these hours, please contact us via email or phone and we’ll do our best to help.

Rapha Festive 500 2015 Competition

If you haven’t heard of the Festive 500 before, now’s the time to get acquainted! The concept is simple, ride your bike a total of 500km from Christmas until the New Year. Not so easy in the Northern Hemisphere where things are cold and miserable, but all too easy here in Sunny RSA 🙂

Document your journey, submit your entry, log your rides on Strava, and you could win some great prizes. All finishers get a roundel (medal) from Rapha themselves. We need no further excuse to get out there and pedal, but perhaps this will sweeten the deal for you.

Complete your Festive 500, and bring us your proof (Strava / Garmin / Rapha Medal), and well give you 20% off your next purchase from us. You can read more about the Rapha Festive 500 here.

We’d like to thank you all for your continued support this year. It’s such a pleasure to help so many people pursue their love of riding a bike. From the novices to the performance enthusiast, we aim to give you all the best equipment and service we can. We wish you, your family, and friends all the very best for the holidays! Travel safe, ride well and have a fantastic festive season! See you in 2016.

Happy Holidays,
Team ChainworX
