Episode 5. Coffee and Mobile Mechanics; Shaking Up The Bike Retail Model.

August 1, 2016

We talked at length in a previous episode about the challenges that the growth in consumer direct sales places on traditional bike retail. With the local bike shop facing increasing competition on all sides how can it stay relevant and survive in today's changing market place? 

In this episode we're joined by the founders of 2 very different businesses who are part of a shift in todays bike retail landscape; Chris Guillemet from mobile mechanic network Velofix, and Sam Humpherson from London bike / coffee shop Look Mum No Hands! 

Tune in to hear how both the franchised mobile mechanic business and the growth in bike / coffee shops are providing consumers alternatives to the traditional bike shop.
