One of the most popular services we offer is our Pre-Purchase bike fit. For those who want to know which bikes fit them before they buy, and this is really essential for Tri bikes, the Pre-Purchase fit allows you to avoid the very costly mistake of buying a bike that just simply doesn't fit you. This is becoming more and more important as bicycle retail moves into a consumer direct model selling bikes direct to you from their web site. The most anticipated brand is Canyon. Now that Canyon is live here in the US and North America, the entire retail landscape will begin to change. Ero is ready to help.


"...it's important to know your fit coordinates before you buy. This insures you buy the correct size, and have the correct componentry installed when your new bike arrives."


Buying the Right Bike - Canyon and Other Online Brands

When you order a bike online, it's important to know your fit coordinates before you buy. This insures you buy the correct size, and have the correct componentry installed when your new bike arrives. Ero assists by first finding your fit coordinates during your Pre-Purchase Fit completely without bias using our adjustable fit bike. We're not a traditional bike retailer, so we have no dog in the hunt. We simply want what's best for you. Once we have the fit coordinates, we provide a list of bikes that fit you, and help you choose the best bikes that fit your needs and budget. This is not, however, where the service ends. Once you have your bike, we fit it to you making sure the fit coordinates match up so your position is optimal and you're ready to ride at your best. Still, we felt there was one more area that needed to be addressed.

One of the more intimidating aspects of buying online is building the bike after it arrives at your home. Most of you don't own the proper tools necessary to build a bike, including torque wrenches to insure your bike is safely assembled. For a small add-on fee, Ero will build your bike before we fit it to you. We're going to be working on it during the fit process anyway, so we figure there's no reason to charge you some outrageous price just so you can be sure everything is properly safe and secure. Just bring the box to us, we'll do the work for you. The build fees range from $25 - $50 depending on brands and how much work there might be in building the bikes. Canyon, for instance, is a $25 fee. A small price for piece of mind. If you have any questions about build pricing, please feel free to ask via phone or email, and we'll be happy to help.

Working with Premier Bike and Other Bike Manufacturers

Our work in the industry puts us in touch with virtually every manufacturer, which allows us to forge partnerships that we use for our client's benefit. A great example is our relationship with Premier Bike. Haven't heard of Premier? You will. They're offering one of the most advanced and independently proven fastest bikes in the world for half the price (sometimes 1/3) of their competitors. We first came into contact with Premier when they hired us to aero test their Tactical Triathlon Bike. Premier wanted independent verification of the bike's aerodynamics, and was going to publish the data no matter what the result. In other words, if their bike wasn't fast, the whole world would know it. Well, as you can guess, it was fast, and has proven itself to be one of the fastest bikes in the world in a much publicized public test. Like Canyon and other consumer direct brands, we're happy to build your Tactical for you as part of your Pre-Purchase Fit process, but Premier is taking things a step further for you. First, you won't pay us for building the Premier...they'll pay us to do it for you. Nice, huh? Oh, but there's more! Premier understands it's hard to buy a bike sight unseen, so they're actually going to put a bike in every size inside Ero so you can see it, touch it, and make sure it fits you in person! Now, we're not going to be a dealer for Premier. They just want the consumer to know what they're getting, and we really love their vision of providing a "Super Bike" at a cost more people can afford, so we're happy to help both them, and you, out. Nice.
