As Spring finally arrives we are always asked how to prepare your ebike for the riding season ahead. Here are our top five things to help get your electric bike ready to ride again.
How to order Point of Sale items
Just a quick reminder of how to order Point of Sale merchandise:
1. Complete a distributor sales order form, which you can find in the Commercial folder within the Distributors resources folder in Dropbox
2. Send the form to Neil at firstname.lastname@example.org
Following receipt of the form, you will receive confirmation of your order and an estimated time of delivery.
A list of all Point of Sale items is being updated and will be available in your Distributors resources folder in Dropbox shortly.
A2B Brochures can be ordered in the same way as Point of Sale merchandise – send a sales order form to Neil at email@example.com.

New Hero Eco global supply chain analyst
Last, but not least, we are delighted to welcome Danial Morris to the Hero Eco team as our global supply chain analyst.
Danial joined the team last November and sits in the head office in London. He is responsible for keeping our stock purchasing in order, ensuring that orders are completed on time and, most importantly, that bikes are delivered and moved around the globe in the quickest and most efficient way possible.
“My job is simple,” explains Danial, “and that is to ensure we get the bike in the right place at the right time!”
Danial’s focus over the coming months is to put controls in place for ordering stock, and oversee the production of the first Obree and Orsted bikes that are being produced in Germany.
Before joining the company, Danial spent many years working in supply chain analytics in the energy industry. More recently he worked on management behaviour analysis. Danial has also owned his own business, importing wine into Thailand. More recently he become a qualified motorcycle mechanic!
Why did he join Hero Eco? “Hero Eco is moving in exciting times and I think I can really contribute to its success. Plus the company makes really cool bikes – and I am a bike nut!”
It will come as no surprise that Danial’s hobbies are all about the outdoors: motorcycles – building, riding and racing them – snowboarding and downhill mountain biking. Well, he is Australian.
