Hi-Ride Carrier “2+2” (4-bike)

Available in both the “Classic” model (for road and XC etc) and the “Downhill” (for those big rigs). This one’s a 2-bike Hi-Ride carrier when that’s all you need, but converts to a 4-bike rack (or back to a 2-bike) in just seconds.

Will my bike fit?

Yes the Hi-Ride system was originally designed for lightweight road & XC bikes (in carbon & alloy), but we think you’ll be amazed at just how versatile it really is for everything from “ladies” bikes to penny farthings. And now it’s a D/H rack too!

Carriers & Racks on caravans & campers etc.

There’s nothing better than taking your bikes with you when you’re off in the van, camper or motorhome. Unfortunately it’s also one of the hardest things to organize properly… until now.

GripSport news

Oh dear! |

Bit of excitement at Grip HQ today with a neighboring factory going to God in a very fiery way.




We had the police taking up residence in our driveway, closing the whole street and telling us to evacuate. ” Because of the toxic fumes they said”...  so no one really busted a gut moving too quickly… until they also mentioned there was a whole heap of ammunition stored in the burning factory.




So we spent most of the afternoon standing round, getting to know everyone else who had been kicked out of work up and down the street and listening to the constant popping of bullets exploding. And unfortunately that meant that absolutely NO work got done, NO phones got answered, NO inbound freight made it to our door and NONE of your orders got despatched. Sorry folks, but if you’re waiting on something coming from us then it’s going to be at least another day late.

And we apologise for that, but just to put things into perspectivel… it could be worse… it could have been your factory burnt to the ground.

Still???? |

We’re still getting them… so called frame “repairs” that have been done cheap by a friend of a mate’s second cousin that some dude met up with down the pub after a gentle 10-hour session of ale-chuggin’.

And here’s a perfect example.


We decided it should look like this though…



Which would you prefer?

“Irony does to stupid what Toyota did to Detroit” the Boss.

C’mon people… lend a hand! |

Lets face it… we are seriously lucky people here in Oz… lucky in that when it comes to the really big picture of life, death and the universe, the truth is we hardly even know what tragedy is. But of course not everyone in the world is that fortunate. Just look at Nepal.

Now we can’t go and build houses, fix roads, or heal the sick and injured, but we also sure as hell can’t just sit on our arses as if nothing has happened…. because something HAS happened and it’s a real tragedy…. so we’ve done what we can and we’ve donated to the Nepal Region Earthquake Appeal being run by the Red Cross. And we’re going to urge all of you reading this to do the same, because if you can afford to ride fancy bikes, drink fancy coffees, watch wide-screen TVs and pay for a mobile phone, then you can afford to give something to people who really need your help.

So rather than let your conscience beat you up with the guilt stick, just do it… now. Click RIGHT HERE and give something.

“I’m actually not funny. I’m just a grumpy shit… and people think I’m joking.”

Brand new! |

Just after the new year we announced that we would be releasing two new products… well here’s the first one.

Our new Bicycle “Billboard” is all steel, fully powder coated, fits onto virtually any bike frame, can be fitted or removed in about one minute (seriously)...

And while there’s plenty of other bicycle billboards out there on the market, they all seem to be based on towing a “trailer” billboard with some big awkward thing dragging along behind. Nothing else is as flexible, cheap and easy to use as this.

And at UNDER $100 it means that virtually any business can now afford to promote itself simply by showing up and riding around anywhere its target audience might be gathered.

“Light travels faster than sound… which is why some people appear bright… until you hear them speak.”

Good luck, Sean & Liz |

Sean went and got himself married on the weekend so we couldn’t let the occasion pass without sending congrats from everyone else here at Grip HQ.

PS… the Boss said you’re expected back to work on Tuesday, mate.

“He who laughs last, thinks slowest”

We’re back |

Over the years, GripSport Christmas parties have swung from heart-pounding and ridiculous (like the big Zombie hunt of 2012), through to dead-set “sleepy” (like 2013’s driveway barbie at the factory). But this Christmas just gone, all the so-called “hip”, “young” & “fit” members of Team GripSport (and yes… you should be rolling your eyes here) decided on bowling… or should I say lawn bowls. Surprisingly though… it was an absolute ripper of a night to end the work year on.


“Team GripSport taking over the greens”

And it seems that everyone here must have been truly knackered by the end of that work year, because the holiday stories have been seriously dull. How dull? Well dull enough to bore a jehovah’s witness door-knocker into stabbing you in the eye. That’s how dull. The boss played the guitar (for weeks on bloody end according to those around him)... Andrew welded himself to the couch and watched cricket… John V put a tent up somewhere near a beach (he thinks)... Sean decided what suit to wear at his wedding in a couple of weeks time… Rob had an accident with a can of red hair dye and may, or may not, have got a new tattoo… Marian went for walks and sat in an NZED hot pool… Gail told us to get stuffed when we asked her what she did… and John D dug a hole (but not a big one apparently).

Bring on 2015!!!!!!!!!!!

“America is the only country where a significant proportion of the population believes that professional wrestling is real, but the moon landing was faked.”

Keep trying. |

Once again, our competitors have pulled out all the stops as they continue their efforts to develop the world’s ultimate bike carrier system.

The “Load-a-lot” (see above), spied while on test and despite the presence of armed Police wearing yellow jackets, is the new, baby brother of the “Load-a-fricken-lot” that we featured in a story last month.

Both carrier systems are rumoured to be going into production in North Korea and when asked for a comment on this, President Barrack Obama immediately swallowed his tongue and died of shock. He was later quoted as saying “What a waste of resources. We already know that GripSport make the best bike carriers in the free world. Why would those North Korean muppets bother?” President Obama was later released from hospital and will be honeymooning in the Cook Islands with his new bride Dr Geoffrey Edlesten and his twelve grandmothers.

Junior BMX |

We certainly aren’t dripping with money and Grip HQ already donate regularly to a number of charities, but we found a few dollars to fling towards junior BMX’s “Mischief Racing” team and wish the kids all the best.
