There is a wide range of cassettes to stock and road bike's are becoming more popular with different ratios and group sets.

  • Learning to manage stock efficiently and correctly will allow your business to stock a sufficient quantity of parts to meet customer needs. Not enough inventory causes delays and is bad for business. Excessive inventory costs a business money.
  • Start off by buying fast moving parts and keep a stock list, this will help when replacing parts sold when making your next order.
  • To get carriage paid you may need to place a minimum order.
  • (product knowledge) Once you are familiar with what you need and you have a better understanding of your suppliers you can bulk buy.

  • Forward ordering can be difficult to judge, it's having enough of the right stock at the right time. 
  • The bread and butter products "The fast moving" continue to sell while the dead sock needs to be minimised by predicting customers spending habits.
