Flyer Electric Bikes expanding distribution, offering free e-bike to shops

Published March 20, 2023

CHICAGO (BRAIN) — Flyer Electric Bikes is expanding distribution and will offer a free e-bike to new in-store stocking and non-stocking retailers if they sign up for the brand's dealer network through Beeline Connect by May 1.

The free e-bike is a Flyer M880 that retails for $1,799 and only applicable to brick and mortar shop locations that have physical inventory. Mobile shops are excluded. The first free e-bike does not automatically qualify a shop as a stocking dealer. A purchase and/or repurchase of additional bikes at wholesale price will qualify the shop for this stocking dealer status. However, shops can still become authorized service centers (non-stocking locations) through Beeline and receive a free M880.

Beeline Connect is an online platform connecting riders, retailers, and brands with assembly services and last-mile product fulfillment. Through this partnership, Radio Flyer, which developed the Flyer brand, now can display service center locations, offer online service scheduling, and provide test ride dealer locations from the Flyer website.

"We are excited to welcome new e-bike retailers to our dealer network and look forward to seeing more Flyer e-bikes in stores across the nation," said Chief Innovation Officer Tom Schlegel. "Our e-bikes are uniquely designed with families in mind, and we hope the added convenience provided through this partnership with Beeline Connect will serve as a resource for busy parents looking to replace car trips with bike rides."

Retailers and service providers looking to join the Flyer Dealer Network will receive exclusive perks and can request to join through the Beeline Connect platform. All other bike shops are encouraged to contact Radio Flyer directly to become an authorized dealer.

According to Radio Flyer, the benefits of being a non-stocking dealer include:

  • Being listed on the Flyer e-bike website as an authorized service center.
  • Zero stocking requirement.
  • Post-sales service opportunities.

Stocking dealer benefits:

  • Being listed on the Flyer e-bike website as a test ride/dealer location.
  • Wholesale pricing on bike bundles with select accessories.
  • Single unit stocking requirement.
  • Post-sales service opportunities.
  • Free shipping.
