Bike Shop Hub Center:

The business and work culture of Bike Shop Hub in all it's glory.

When we have new products, sales, weird marketing ideas, commentary on the cycling industry, or embarrasing photos of of the staff, this is where you'll find it.

And since we are located in Arizona, we'll talk about the cycling scene in the state.

Join the conversation.

Send In Your Cycling Photos

We get to see and touch and test all sorts of great cycling gear here at our world headquarters. But we actually get to meet very few of our customers in person.

We just know you are out there taking pictures of your amazing cycling adventures. We want to see them! The best ones will be shared on the relevant section of this blog: Bike Cargo Trailers, Bike Touring, Bike Technology and Family Cycling.

2008 Fast Forwarded

So it’s been a long time since I’ve posted to my “business journal” blog. Business at Wandertec has boomed this year not leaving much time to reflect. And much of my blogging energy has gone into the Bike Trailer Blog instead.

But, I do like to write and reflect so now that things have slowed down with the winter months upon us, I’ll resume my ramblings.

So 2008 was a great year for the business. It was a boom year for bike commuting, and all things related and with our focus on bike trailers and bicycle bags, the sales came flooding in. Along with this growth, we brought on 3 full time employees, along with myself, making us 4 strong.

Now that we’re in the slow season, we’ve been chipping away at a whole range of projects including launching a new website Bike Bag Shop which is also going to be the new platform for Bike Trailer Shop and then Bike Kid Shop in the coming months.

In other areas, we have launched a new concept site called Spoke And Word. This site is for bike-blog writers and enthusiasts to post and vote on bike posts. We’re not sure if the bike blogging community will pick up on this website as a useful tool to both promote their own blogs and check out a whole variety of other blog posts, however we are finding that our involvement in getting it underway is a very useful way to become much more active in the bike-blogging community.

Finally, we are about to launch new versions of the Wandertec and ExtrawheelUSA sites.

We’re keeping it rolling…..
