Many great business ideas arise from shared passions amongst friends and Wheelease is no different. Why was Wheelease founded? Well, we believe bike ownership suffers from two major problems:
First, bikes are getting more and more expensive every year with some range-topping bikes hitting well over ten thousand dollars. Bike ownership can be daunting. Seasoned riders might not want to spend top dollar for a high end bike, while beginners are hesitant to spend a big chunk of change on a new pastime they’ve yet to begin.
Second, selling or getting rid of our used bikes is tedious and cumbersome. We post our used bike listings online at eBay, Craigslist or Pinkbike, then wait anxiously for a buyer. Ultimately, the transaction is challenged by finding a reputable buyer that isn’t trying to scam you. Buyers also tend to be hesitant since the warranty does not transfer to them from the original owner. And if you've made it past these hurdles, you’ll need to deal with boxing your bike, insuring it and having it shipped.
We believe that leasing is a far superior solution to that of traditional bike ownership. Wheelease allows you to find the bike you really want to ride. Then work with a bike shop to order and deliver it and pay a low monthly payment for the desired length of time. And with Wheelease, you have great options at the end of the term: buy it if you still love it, or return it so you can move on to the latest, lowest, slackest bike of the day.
Wheelease was born on a bike ride with the goal of making the mountain bike riding experience more affordable. We hope to see you out on the trails in the years ahead.
