Business Story

Why this business was started

I decided to start this business due to high cost of cycling gear at retail sports apparel stores. After initial research I found that I could find similar quality fabric for almost half the cost. "Find a problem and provide a solution" is the popular saying when starting a business. Cycling gear in my opinion is grossly overpriced and I have a found a way to charge customers half the price for quality cycling gear.

The reason of selling this business

My full time job and significant other takes up most of time on weekdays and weekends. The amount of spare time is limited which made me decide to sell this business. It saddens me to let go of something I put my heart and soul into but at this time it is the right decision.

What's involved in running this business

The day to day involves keeping up to date with customers' emails and updating the product offering via the suppliers websites. There are multiple suppliers and new ones can easily be found online. Fulfilling and shipping orders are kept simple using a drop ship method (more details can be requested) This business can prosper with a team / individual that has the time to effectively market the business in cycling forums, posts, groups online.

This business was founded: over 2 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 1 hour per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would grow the business over the next 5 years by offering new lines of clothing. Cycling is a summer activity in a lot of regions of the world so in order to take advantage of the 4 seasons I would look to implement gear for winter sports. (e.g. skiing, snowboarding etc.)

    Skills to have

    No specific skills / knowledge is required to run this business. Basic computer skills (Windows or Mac) will suffice. Strong communication skills are required to interact with customers when there are questions or concerns and this is done all by email. Customers can be worldwide so be prepared to answer emails on weekends / evenings.

    Hi, My name is Jo from Toronto, Ontario Canada. I am a avid cyclist and sports fan. I have a full-time job in the financial sector with long hours often ranging from 50-60 hours / week. I love dogs but unfortunately I do not have any because of family members with pet allergies. I exercise on a regular basis including jogging, cycling and swimming and enjoy being a beach guy in the summer (winter's a different story). All in all I'm laid back guy who enjoys the beach, outdoor activities and dogs.
