We realized it was time for a change. Starting out with just a Facebook page, we realized we needed to focus on speed and quality! This led to almost one year working on releasing our iOS app. When launched in 2014, it made quite an impression, as few people were expecting to be able to fix their bicycle on location with an app. We even made headlines in Het Parool.
We believe that bicycles are awesome. More than 100 years from their invention, they have changed surprisingly little, and continue to be key to urban commuting in many cities around the world, with more bicycles than cars worldwide, and more sold each year.
Not only do they represent a decent chunk of our past and occupy a significant role in the present. We believe that they are key to our future as well, being a very common sense solution to the problems that tomorrow’s cities will face, from pollution to congestion.
This is why we are honored to do our part in bringing this about. As awesome as bicycles are, if they don’t work, it’s no good. Waiting 3 days to get your bicycle fixed is also no good. Things need to change and we’re on it 🙂
