Save time and ride more with Vancouver’s first mobile pro cycle shop.
Spring is in full swing, but is your bike ready to hit the road?
You could walk your bike over to the neighbourhood cycle shop for its annual tune up, or you can save yourself the time and hassle with velofix, Vancouver’s first mobile pro bike shop.
Founded last year by three-time Canadian National track winner Boris Martin (pictured), Canadian Olympic and World Cup soccer star Davide Xausa and marathoner Chris Guillemet, velofix’s fully integrated online booking system allows customers to book anything from a tune up to a complete overhaul from your laptop, tablet or smartphone. All you have to do is meet the company’s self-contained Mercedes Sprinter van at your chosen time and location and their certified pro mechanics take care of the rest. Then you’re literally good to go.
It’s a wheely, wheely smart idea.
