Well, here it is. First of all, one million apologies for the delay. It really took more than we expected. Choosing the best distributor for Flybikes was not easy. We had to think about many things, but we couldn´t be happier with the result. Good things usually take time…. Flybikes will now be distributed through QBP and GREENHOUSE. Both distributors are already receiving stock in about 10 days so shops can go ahead and contact them.
The reason we have chosen two distributors are many. One important one is that it will be easier to have stock of all our stuff available all the time. This was something that we needed to improve. Most of the shops already know about QBP; how well they work and their amazing values, especially on environmental issues. I wish all the companies would follow their steps….
