A WARNING TO EVERY CYCLING MISSIONARY IN THE U.S. - a most serious concern - Bicycle theft is rising dramatically. The coming holiday season and the poor economy is causing a notable upswing in bike theft. Look at our Theft Prevention Video online. Also, as available, review the Missionary Dept. Bike Safety and Security Video. Extra caution right now is definitely in order.
CTR Bikes is your trusted source for Missionary Bikes:
Quality: We offer the very best brands available in the U.S. Nobody tops Trek Bicycles, Specialized Bikes and the Gary Fisher Collection.
Selection: We offer 25 different bicycle models with the intent to have you always spend less than more.
Variety: You can select from urban bikes, mountain bikes, and hybrid bikes depending on the kind of ride you will need in the mission. We can provide any model available among our four brands.
Value: We consistently sell for less. And we don't inflate stated prices to make it appear as though you are saving more money.
Savings: All replacement parts not under warranty are sold at cost with no profit taken. That means savings of over 50%, always.
Protection: Our goal is to never leave a missionary without a bike. If the attempt is made to properly lock a bike and it is stolen, we replace it. Or, if the bike is significantly damaged in an accident, we replace it. And, there are no written reports required.
Service: We are always there to serve with a toll-free number right on the bike and to provide local service as needed throughout every area of your mission.
Quick Response: We can prepare your bike in a day and have it in the mission in less than a week.
Ride-ready bikes: Every bike is assembled, adjusted, lubricated and test-ridden prior to shipment. The time to unpack the bike is 15-20 minutes.
The right bike for you: The right bike for missionaries means the right model for the rider. Our bikes are weight-graded. You don’t pay for more bike than you need or get less than required for your weight. Plus, we know what bike you will need for your mission. We have experience in every U.S. mission area and can guide you to the right model for your unique mission bike requirements.
The right accessories: We supply all the bike accessories needed as part of the bike package. We never offer cable or chain locks which can be easily defeated with a pry bar — the thieves favorite tool.
Guidance in getting a bike sent home: Call us before sending a bike home and we’ll tell you how to get it there most efficiently and economically.
Experience: Our reputation precedes us — ask other missionaries, ask your mission, ask other parents — we have ten years as an experienced vendor of the Church Purchasing Division and the number one mission bike supplier in the U.S.
