Reid Bikesis looking to make it easier for ready to buy consumers to purchase its bikes by partnering online with its dealers and distributors. 

Powered by ShipEarly, Reid Bikes Click n’ Ride program enables consumers to buy on ReidBikesUSA.comwith local dealer assembly and pickup or delivery. If the items are in stock retailers sell their units from the floor and if out of stock Reid Bikes distributors Hans Johnson, Olympic Supply, and DownEast Bicycle Supply ship the bikes from their warehouse to dealers for last mile assembly and pickup.

According to Rob Akam, Managing Director of Reid Bikes “we want to help our dealers and distributors be successful by kickstarting new customer relationships with our bikes and brand. By connecting the dots we intend to make it easier for our dealers and distributors to sell our bikes and get more people into bike shops to experience our cycling culture regardless of shopping preferences. By including our distributors we have willing partners that can ship quicker and consumers can obtain their bikes with local assembly giving consumers the convenience of online with the service only an IBD can provide taking our partnership to a new level as we believe in the local IBD.”

Existing dealers already participating in ShipEarlycan request to connect with Reid Bikes within the platform and new dealers interested in carrying Reid Bikes or the service can register for FREE online.

According to Nick Kolobutin, CEO & Founder of ShipEarly “Reid Bikes has a great brand, but previous to our service did not want to bypass the dealer or distributor as they add tremendous value. With our service, we integrate and digitize the entire process to streamline the operation for all channel partners involved to work closer and unlock opportunities to grow their business together.”
