A Lump of Coal from Trek Bicycles

Just in time for Christmas, my store has lost one of its most popular brands; Electra Bikes will no longer be available at Cap’s in New Westminster. Why? The company that owns Electra, Trek Bicycles, has decided to pull it from my store. I cannot sit idly by and be silent about this experience of corporate bullying.

I’ve been an Electra dealer for over 10 years and this decision by the Wisconsin-based, Trek Bicycle Company will deny my customers access to Electra’s unique products. Trek purchased Electra earlier this year and at that time said there would be no change for existing dealers; however, they were going to be making Electra available to their network of Trek Shops.

My store held strong with the increased competition from multi-store chains. I thought we proved that “more is better than less” for consumers in today’s bicycle market. In fact, on September 4th, I received an email from Trek congratulating me on a successful year and confirming my dealership for 2015.

Then on November 12th, I received an email that said, “We will not be authorizing your location as an Electra retailer for 2015”. The reason given for ending the dealer agreement:  “…it became clear that the extra retail is not best for anyone long term”. You can imagine my surprise and disappointment; we had supported the Electra brand for a decade when it had Canadian distribution and we were expecting to continue that support with the U.S. distribution.

 That is my story of how the small, independent, bike shop gets pushed out the door as large corporations act to limit competition; a story with an unfortunate end to it.

I still have a few Electra’s in my shop and I still think they make wonderful bikes. I want you to feel good about purchasing an Electra from me and to do that I will donate $50 from every Electra Bike purchased between now and December 24th to the Purpose Society Christmas Hamper Program

Thank you all for your continued support. It’s been a great ten years providing Electra bikes.
