PORTLAND, Ore. (BRAIN) — Red Truck has signed up Velofix to provide on-site assembly of bicycles purchased on the online sports marketplace.

“We want to be seen as a solution for brands to move their gear and have the confidence that it will be assembled with the quality expected by the consumer,” said Michael Bergmann, Red Truck’s president and CEO. “The Velofix service is already offered by many of the top cycling brands, and we are excited to be part of that ecosystem for our customers.”

Red Truck is an online marketplace for athletes and companies to sell used professional-grade gear, with a portion of sale proceeds donated to a charity or cause. The Red Truck website, which also features stories about athletes and the work of partner foundations, will be updated in July with an improved user experience that includes the Velofix Build service, the company stated.

Velofix co-founder and CEO Chris Guillemet said, “We are looking forward to partnering with Red Truck. Their blend of social impact with reliable goods offers consumers a unique and custom experience. That speaks to us and we share a lot of the same customer experience expectations.”
