Cyclone Acquires Action Bicycle USA

Posted: November 06, 2015 in Cyclone News

Our family is growing

Today we announced the recent acquisition of Carlstadt, NJ based parts & accessories distributor, Action Bicycle USA!


In operation since 1988, Action’s product development success and commitment to service make a perfect complement to our ordering technologies and logistics network. Since opening our doors in 2003, we have grown steadily year on year, expanding our reach from the Pacific Northwest to the West Coast to Nationwide. The addition of Action’s dealer base, and its east coast distribution facility will solidify our coast to coast reach.

“Ralph Zotta and I met in early 2015 to discuss working together in a way that leveraged both of our strengths. At Cyclone we’ve been working hard to level the playing field for IBD’s with tools like our Cyclone Bike Shopper App, giving retailers the ability to virtually expand product selection without expanding in-store stock levels, creating a huge opportunity for the IBD retailer. Meanwhile, Action has created great in-house product lines with good value for their customers. We plan to expand both. All house brands will continue under Ralph's guidance and you will see our ordering technologies and shipping options expand in the next year", Erik Deeter, Cyclone CEO”

In 2016, retailers will see an immediate increase in delivery and service options - We will offer “same day” ordering/delivery to Portland and NYC/NJ metro area accounts, one and two-day ground shipping to the major metro areas of both East and West Coasts, as well as reduced ship times to Mid-West and Texas. We will expand selection at both warehouses to stock the core product that we are known for, as well as key product from the Action catalog.

These are exciting times. Stay tuned for more updates.
