As any of you who read my blog have noticed, there have been a whole bunch of changes in my life this past season – the latest of which is the sale of the loudbike e-store to Indianapolis, IN-based enthusiast and Speedzilla board member AnthonyCreek (aka desmoworks). Anthony and I spend this past weekend in Toronto working through all of the details of the deal and developing a plan for the transition and found some time to hang out with Robert Trottier at Ducati Toronto do a bit of serious bench racing.
With a SBK, Monster, 250 single and KTM motard bike in the stable, he continues to try to cope with MBD (multiple bike disorder) and has the technical background an enthusiasm to continue the store’s success. The store will be business as usual with Anthony retaining the existing product mix, store platform and branding although he’ll have a more intense focus on the business as his key source of income. I’m going to continue to stay involved through December as Anthony gets his feet wet and prepares for the peak season frenzy.
It’s kind of a bittersweet experience – passing the store on as I really enjoyed the interaction with customers and the creative challenges in building the business, but it’s the final stage in my transition to my new career with a Salt Lake City-based software concern. My heartfelt thanks to all of you for supporting the loudbike e-store while it was under my ownership.
Now, please help me make Anthony feel welcome in his new business venture by getting off your butts, logging onto the store and buying a bunch of stuff. (…or better yet, call him up on the new store toll-free number (888-420-5211) and ask him a bunch of skill-testing questions….)
