Propel Bikes, the cycle shop at the top of Uckfield High Street has closed, but the business plans to continue by offering mobile servicing.
The company’s website says it will operate as an appointment-based mobile bike servicing, upgrade, and repair service, and the bricks and mortar outlet at 216 High Street will be permanently closed.
Propel Bikes was opened in Uckfield in May 2014 by Rob Pelham to stock bikes for all types of cycling, accessories and clothing.
It also had full workshop facilities and qualified mechanics to carry out servicing and repairs.
The shop closed on January 1 and the business is now being run from Newick.
The Propel Bikes website says: “Propel Bikes is altering its business model away from the traditional retail shop environment, and all the restrictions that go with it, to being a more flexible, customer focused, and convenient, mobile service, and repair operation.”
