In the UK, Cycle Tech UK, which oversees a network of 35 mobile mechanics is another looking at bike in a box business as an opportunity. Owner Martin Wilkins says business is sporadic, but growing.

He told Cycling Industry News: “It’s certainly an area of expansion within the bike business given the rise of brands selling via this model. Cycle Tech UK has met with a handful of these labels and in the past we’ve gone out on Canyon’s newsletter as a trusted service partner. Brands are looking for someone they can trust and our network partners are all fully certified to do the job. Those who we have worked with cover the initial setup cost.” Logistically there are mutual benefits too. “Having a trusted mechanic covering a territory saves the brand on courier costs, whereby when problems arise they’re not having to arrange delivery backwards and forwards,” adds Wilkins. “In particular, I can see electric bike service jobs developing here. If you have to send one of those back they becomes a bit more difficult to re-sell.” From a manufacturer’s point of view, investment in last mile servicing often takes risk out of the equation, assuming the mechanic is certified to do the job.
