A Humble Beginning
Like so many of our customers, Top Tier began with a little sticker shock. Our founder Will Herring, was looking for a cheap bicycle to ride to classes and commute on when attending the University of Florida. Walking into a few bike shops caused some serious sticker shock. There just weren’t any quality bikes out there without spending top dollar on retail. Getting a cheap used bike off of Craigslist that could be fixed up soon became the best option. And so began the journey of learning how to find good bikes, work on them, add value, and be able to pass on a higher quality, used ride at a better value than buying new.
Within 4 years, we had reached a point of about a hundred bikes a year. We became one of the bigger bike sellers in Gainesville and began our outward reach. We started buying from surrounding cities within a few hours and selling to them as well. Our skills in finding and working on higher-end bikes were growing. Enter our first carbon rides with quality components.
Enter, another move! Back to Florida this time. And this time, we had grown too big to sell out inventory for the move. Man, that was a lot of bikes we brought down! But it was great to be back on home turf. Familiar with the local markets while still being able to serve the rest of the nation with high-end rides. At this point, we had grown to about 200 bikes a year, and it showed. We needed more space! A 1500 sq ft workshop was a blessing and served us well for the next couple years.
Where are we today? Able to serve over 300 customers a year, we have grown to quite the team. With several mechanics, a marketing specialist, and a full-time photographer, Top Tier Cycles has become quite the family. Many of our team members come from a non-profit where we have all worked together. Another move has been such a blessing. Two locations, with a third in the works. Storage for hundreds of bikes and a purpose-built space of 3,500 sq ft, ideal for organized and efficient working on high-end roadies. With two locations, one of them purpose-built for us, and all this in the works, it’s exciting to see how many riders we can help find value in Top Tier rides in the upcoming years.
