At event support service

Hi everyone, I've got a weird question. A friend of mine is a cycle technician and has recently set up his own business prepping and servicing bikes. 

He asked me last night if I thought there would be any market for a mobile shop at an event. Doing service/checks/set ups etc the night before an event or early door before an event. 

Being new to this I wasn't sure

Does anyone already offer this service?

If not, would anyone be interested in this kind of service? 


  • I havent seen anything like this in the few years I've been competing - sounds like an awesome idea!

    I'm sure if he approached and offered some kind of profit share arrangement they might advertise his service

    Human Race normally have something like this at Eton based races I think. Not sure the extent to which they will do a "full service" or if its just tune ups on brakes, indexing etc

    i've seen it at a few events. bike shops with a stand who witll do a tune-up / problem solve before an event, or a mechanic service (big events have had these). I'm sure that if your friend speaks to a race organiser they'll be able to agree something. 

  • Thanks for the help everyone!
