Feedback Sports is a Colorado Company we LOVE. As far as bike maintenance and storage products go, they've got it down. So it came as no surprise when they took this knowledge and applied it to the app world. It's our pleasure at 303 to introduce you to the new Feedback Sports Maintenance tracker app. It was officially launched to the public at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey California.
We got a chance to visit with Jeff Nitta (Director of Sales / Marketing) at Sea Otter. When speaking of the app's origin, Jeff said, "Well, Doug (Hudson--Founder and President of Feedback) is obviously pretty into maintenance. He was tired of having yellow sticky notes all over to keep track of when he last replaced a part, bled the brakes, etc. So he started working on this about a year ago. And here it is."
As Jeff walked me through it. I said aloud, "This app is a Type-A-er's dream." He laughed. "Yes. Yes, yes it is." But it will appeal to all riders. Great, in fact, for those of us who have no idea the last time we replaced our chain. None. No recollection whatsoever.
We also loved it because it's a way to accurately record the worth of your bike. Let's say you built your bike up, piece by piece and one day it gets stolen or wrecked. You will need to know the worth for insurance purposes. This app will help. Record your serial numbers, what shop you bought the bike from, everything. And this is just for the regular rider/racer. Imagine the possibilities it could hold for bike shop owners when it comes to tracking maintenance/sales and getting repeat business.
During the development of this app we explored many different ways this could benefit all levels of cyclist. In addition to this we believe there are many benefits to the bicycle dealers as this can be used by them as a means of getting return business on service and service items. This app is FREE for all IOS users and is compatible with iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices. Please explore this app and it's many functions for bicycle maintenance. Let us know if you have any questions, comments and of course Feedback!
