Discount Tri Supply

  • We Are Kyle's Bikes

    Discount Tri Supply is now Kyle's BikesWe were both Kyle's Bikes and Discount Tri Supply. Now we are simply Kyle's Bikes. We have the same great products and people, now with one name!

    For over six years we have been operating our retail store and online store under separate names... but in both places serving the needs of cyclists, runners, and triathletes... out of the same warehouse... with equal commitment to customer experience...

    Now, to make things simpler, we are changing our online store to match the name of our retail store.

  • DiscoutTriSupply.com Core Values Meeting

    by Patrick Davis

    Core Values MeetingEarlier this year, the DiscountTriSupply.com team members got together for a meeting. For such a small company, it was shocking to see that some people still had not met. There are five full-time and four part-time employees so one would think we would have a close relationship. It was really good to sit down and have everyone introduce themselves and learn about the roles of the other team members. Blog posts on a few members are up and others are in the works. Check them out if you have not done so yet!

    Our History

    DiscountTriSupply.com was officially launched August 2010, but the e-commerce idea was there long before that. Kyle's Bikes bike shop (Ankeny, Iowa) opened in March 2008 with a focus on cycling, a small selection of running shoes, and dreams of expanding on-line.

    In early 2009, Kyer Robinson (Kyle's son) joined the company and began selling products from an eBay store. By selling inexpensive items and shipping them all over the world, he built the systems that would develop into who we are. With those in place, the next step was a standalone website so that we could control and improve the customer experience.

  • What DiscountTriSupply.com Is All About

    Welcome to the official DiscountTriSupply.com blog!  This has been in the works for some time now and I am pleased to finally be putting up the first post. My name is Patrick Davis and I have been on the DiscountTriSupply.com staff for 3 years.  I have raced triathlon as an age grouper, elite amateur and in the pro field.  I love everything about the sport and find all of the gear involved fascinating.  This blog will be our shops outlet to purge information about races, products, training, eating etc.  Here is a little about us.

    DiscountTriSupply.com was launched in late 2010 in the back of our local bike shop.  Growing out of a corn field on the southwest side of Ankeny, Iowa the shop has seen great success.  Over the last two years the e-commerce side has grown a few times.  Today it is a completely separate entity from the shop with 6 full time employees and a few part timers.  That may still seem small but we can pack a mean punch with our efficiency and customer support. The same people who receive your order will pick and ship it.  If there is an issue with any order a personal email gets sent out as quickly as possible.  We are here for you!

    DiscountTriSupply.com is a business based on strong customer service beliefs.  Each customer is treated with world class respect no matter how big or small the order is.  There are no machines packing your order and we take pride in that.  Keeping things small and intimate is our insurance that each customer is treated right.  When the phone is answered there is a good chance you will be talking directly to the founder, Kyer Robinson.  If it is not him the rest of the small but very knowledgeable staff will be able to answer your question.

    This blog is meant to be full of information to benefit our readers.  Many different authors will be represented here.  We feel that knowledge and experience come from everywhere and welcome the input from out local experts.  Some are professional athletes, some have been in the bike industry for decades and others may be here because they have something funny to talk about.

    To close I would just like to say welcome to the blog! A lot of very informative and exciting posts are in the works and can't wait to share them with you. If you find any of this interesting make sure to come back for more and also tell your friends!

    Sincerely,

    Patrick Davis
