As part of Canyon’s U.S. invasion, the direct-to-consumer brand has added one more delivery option to their arsenal: Velofix.
Now, for $95, you can ignore the assembly tools that come with each Canyon road, cyclocross, commuter or mountain bike, and just have it show up ready to ride. The fee is on top of a standard delivery charge and covers professional assembly by your local Velofix franchisee. There are almost 100 such mobile repair trucks in operation in the United States already, and that number is constantly growing.
“Canyon’s groundbreaking direct-to-consumer distribution has demonstrated for years around the globe that our riders can expect the highest level of service and quality when purchasing online, and be ready to ride within minutes of receiving their Canyon at home or office,” said Canyon USA President Blair Clark in the press release. “The simple setup process has satisfied hundreds of thousands of customers and is one of Canyon’s many unique benefits. By offering the Canyon USA Delivery Service by Velofix we will have another option to serve the customer who desires additional personal assistance from a professional certified mechanic.”
This announcement adds to Velofix’s growing brand lineup, which includes Turner, Van Dessel and others. Competitor Beeline Cycles offers a similar service for Raleigh, Diamondback, Redline and pretty much any bike available on Amazon or Competitive Cyclist.
