Outlining our goals, analyzing and strategizing for our internal and external environment, staying on top of our financial health, taking care of our investors, and effectively marketing our products will be the keys to a long-term successful business plan. In order to do so, we will need to be aware of the demands and needs of our customers. Understanding the needs of our customers means we are going to provide a wide variety of products to capture the needs of a wide variety of bikers. After lengthy and intense market research we have determined that there are 5 bike types that we will need to provide to our customer population.

Kids will enjoy our Red Racer series that will provide a safe and fun riding experience for kids at all ages.

Last but not least, our iTaxi series allows you to make traveling fun with a quick ride that has a built in holder for your phone, iPod, or MP3 Player. By providing a wide variety of bikes that fit the needs of multiple ages, riding expertise and needs will allow Off The Chain Bikes to become the premier Bike Company in the United States. This plan will be implemented by our executive management and employee population that has been hand-picked as the most brightest, caring, and engaged staff in the bike industry today.
