Hi Folks, I joined this forum because I have little time due to work and am interested in entertaining a business proposition for someone who is well versed in the Bicycle Industry. Possibly someone who has managed a concept store, currently owns a successful bike shop or a great mechanic who is tired of working for someone else and is ready to make a career upgrade.
Here's the deal; I own a performance lab in southern California that is in a great location, a great community of affluent active people. Our business model provides all the ancillary services for triathletes, cyclists and runners. We have a great retail storefront that we spent quite a few bucks to impress our clients and now we feel providing bike sales and service out of our store is a natural progression.
We have two choices, become a dealer or bring in a partner who wants to focus on that aspect of the business. As I see it this is a great business opportunity for the right people or person. Frankly, we have our hands full and are not that excited about taking the business on ourselves, which leaves a great opportunity for someone who wants to tackle the concept of running their own business.
If you know someone who might be interested or you have any constructive comments, we'd love to hear from you.
