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.

File Organization

For the past few weeks we’ve been organizing all of our files and file names.

Having worked on my own developing this business for the first two years, it was generally hard to justify the time it would take to develop a uniform method for organizing my files. As a new business, it was also difficult to determine what methods of file organization would be most helpful for the business.

Having grown our business quite significantly over the last year with the strong growth in utility cycling, we now have both the need and the impetus for a solid organization of all of our files.

The main goal has been to organize our product naming structure in with our system of accounting and organizing images and information. The naming structure of our websites is the starting point. We name by shop, then brand, then brand subcategory then product name. As closely as possible we duplicate this in our accounting names and our organization of information relating to the products we sell.

Our basic ambition in setting up our files is to setup an easy to use method of cataloging all of the information and images we deal with to create a great database of Utility Cycling information. In the end, we hope to organize and present as much of this information as possible.
