- The Tribe Bikes Model
Tribe Bikes operates a unique business model. Predominantly a direct to consumer business, we also work with a select number of retailers in strategic locations. Other than a demo bike, the retailer is not required to purchase stock up front, with orders placed on an as needed (ie when you make a sale) basis. This model allows you to promote the Tribe Bikes product without needing to have significant capital tied up in stock and without utilising valuable storage space.
Given the unique nature of the product and large size, Tribe Bikes completes all assembly and we can deliver direct to your customer or to your store, whatever your preference is.
