We are in this together... this is so true right now! We have never had anything like this happen before, in our lives, or in our industry. If you have been following us you will have noticed that we have not taken this lying down, we have not sat on our hands and hoped for the best, we have tried to be pro-active and positive while keeping the triathlon fraternity amused. Sorry if you feel we have over-filled your inbox, but please forgive us, we are just trying to make the best of a bad situation, ready for the racing ahead.
With this in mind, we wanted to work with our friends in the industry to showcase their businesses. So, today we would like to start by shouting about our friends Bikeworks/Webuycycle who are based in the same building as HUUB. In addition to selling top-quality pre-owned bikes, they offer efficient servicing for all types of bike as well as competitive complete service packages. They provide safe and secure bike parking for the residents of Derby along with a program where you can sell your bike to them, take your cash, and buy something new and adorable.
Here's some info from them...
Bikeworks Derby offers something a little different from your average High Street shop. Our main focus is selling top quality, premium pre-owned road, triathlon, MTB and eBikes. We have models from all of the leading manufacturers and our bikes are checked over by our mechanical team prior to them leaving the store. Such is our confidence in our products that we back our pre-owned bikes with a 3 month in-house warranty, which covers any manufacturer defects that occur in that time. The quality of our stock is unrivalled and we have quickly become one of the UK’s leading businesses in the pre-owned sector – see our Google reviews on our bikes.
In addition to our bike sales, we offer complete service packages providing efficient and competitive servicing to our customers for all types of bike.
We support Derby City Council in offering a free bike parking service for regular commuters to Derby city centre. Visitors can drop their bike in during our opening hours, safe in the knowledge that their precious commuter bike will still be there when they need it at the end of the day!
Situated on the ground floor of the HUUB Building, we enjoy regularly changing the cranksets of HUUB Founder, Dean Jackson as he strives to gain those extra watts that his HUUB Wattbike team can put out in their sleep!
Webuycycle was formed just over three years ago by cycling enthusiasts. We offer a professional service to those cyclists who want to turn unwanted road, triathlon/TT, MTB, eBikes into potential next day funds, via Paypal or by bank transfer.
We aim to make selling a bike a smooth, hassle-free process and we can provide funds without fees that ought to rival the net figures obtained from sites such as eBay and thus avoid failed transactions and time associated with completing a private sale. We aim to provide a quotation within 48 hours of receiving the online valuation request.
We look for bikes that are in excellent condition and would be likely to have a resale value in excess of £500 and preferably £1000+ in our opinion. Customers can courier bikes to us from throughout the UK or can even drop them off to us on the ground floor of the HUUB Building, by appointment.
We request copies of photographic ID and proof of ownership for all of our purchases.
