Motorbike Fans use Winter for Tyre Check
- Internet tyre dealer Delticom opens online shop for motorbike tyres
Hannover, 28.11.01 As winter approaches and motorbikes disappear from the roads, many bikers spend hours in their garages overhauling their machines for spring. This usually includes a new set of tyres. Just in time for the "hibernating" period, the Hannover-based Delticom AG, european market leader in online tyre sales, has opened a motorbike tyre shop on the web. At www.motorradreifendirekt.de , bikers can choose between 3,500 types of road, enduro, chopper, cruiser and motocross tyres at lower prices. Tyres from well-known manufacturers can now be ordered 24 hours a day. These include brands such as Avon, Bridgestone, Continental, Dunlop, Metzeler, Michelin, and Pirelli. In addition to its wide range of tyres at lower prices, Delticom regularly offers tyres at reduced prices.
The online shop is simple and easy to use; ordering is uncomplicated. Prices include shipping costs. The tyres can be delivered to any address - home, service station or tyre fitter that can mount motorbike tyres. The customer has the the right to return the products within a 30 day period, which is more than the 14 day period required by law.
"This is the next step to becoming a full-range tyre dealer" explained Managing Director Rainer Binder (43). Since the beginning of 2000, Delticom offers private and commercial vehicle tyres at www.reifendirekt.de , as well as complete wheels. In autumn last year, the tyre dealing company went online in Austria (www.reifendirekt.at), and this year in Switzerland (www.reifendirekt.ch), Great Britain (www.mytyres.net) and in the Netherlands (www.autobandenmarkt.nl). The proven concept is now being extended to the sale of motorbike tyres in Germany. An expansion into the entire German-speaking area is being planned.
