Business to Consumer - Direct Online Bike Sales & With Customer Care

When I started Cycle Tech in 2007, I soon was telling myself it would only be a matter of time; that our mobile services would greatly be required, inline with the rapidly growing on-line sale of new bicycles, that cyclist who brought on-line, where requiring bicycles assembling correctly, riders error or putting right after customer "having a go".

Business to Consumer - Direct Online Bike Sales

Having all new bicycles assembled correctly, reduces warranty returns, the brand being bad named and the worst scenario  customer asking for a refund.
It also gives the owner a better riding experience, as their bicycle would be set up correctly and shown how to use the gears.

Shopping 24/7 online is normal for many cyclists, not just looking for bargains, the latest news and to find a service provider.


Customer Service With Care Can Not Be Brought On-line 
"To keep a customer demands, as much skill to win one"

  • Mobile service generates cash for the business in several ways - not just the actual service, but also though spare parts, maintenance, repairs, teaching, consumables, accessories, rental and sales leads.
  • Its a huge part of our mobile business - more then 80% of revenues are generated from on-site service.
  • Mobile service income is much more stable then bike sales and provides income base for our business; not just now but for several years, hence which helps forward planning.
  • It provides some competitive advantage for Cycle Tech UK's Network.
