New Brands Available

Here at Hurtle Gear we love to ride, and we know that there are times the bike you’re on could be better with some improvements to make it just how you want.
It’s always been true that we only want to supply parts we’d buy ourselves. Stuff we’re proud of. Decades of time on street bikes, along with a little cruiser background, a bit of dirt squirting, and then a crack at racing gave us a fair idea of what was good to carry.
When we were a little operation we got the chance to look at pretty much everything before we bought it. If we like something a brand did, and we liked the way they were to deal with, we’d try to carry as much of their gear as we could. It’s a bit tougher now, but we’ve still tried to stick with the idea that a brand can prove itself to us, and we’ll try to give our customers a chance to use it. If there’s no history of quality control, and the only benefit we see is the price is lower than the next guy, it’s not a brand we want.
As more customers came to us and said “Help me get hold of one of these”, we’ve got deals going with a bunch of distributors. If we hit up someone for one brand, but they held another 6, we would usually just leave the rest because we had no real experience, so we didn’t know if we would recommend them.
So where does this leave us? We’ve got a core of products we really like. We’ve got a bunch of customers who like dealing with us, and we’ve got access to about 50 brands we don’t really know very well. Seems that if we got a system together to know the brands we could recommend, we’d have a lot more we could supply. Who better to tell us what works for them than you guys? If there’s something you are happy to use, but it’s not easy to get it, have a try with Hurtle Gear. We’ll get you a good price, and if you’ve used it before, that’s already a recommendation. If you haven’t used it before but your mates tell you it’s good gear, there’s a recommendation. Of course, if you buy something, we’re going to be eager to get your feedback.
A couple of times in our history, we’ve found that a brand has let customers down. Anyone can make a mistake, no brand gets into trouble for one or two dud products. What’s important is that they understand that their job is to make the problem right. A manufacturer has to work with us to make sure the customer got what they paid for. The experience has to be positive in the long run, and the hiccups have to be rare. If that’s not how it all works out, you won’t find the gear on our site.
