WiggleCRC makes £100m move on German rival Bike24

WiggleCRC backer Bridgepoint is closing in on a deal to acquire German online retailer Bike24, reports The Sunday Times. The private equity firm is expected to pay £100m to acquire the €85m Bike24, which would cement Wiggle CRC's position as the world's leading online cycle retailers.

Bike24 also operates in Austria and Switzerland.

WiggleCRC had a turnover of £283m last year, but thanks to costs associated with the absorption of Chain Reaction Cycles made profits of only £7m.

A statement from WiggleCRC said: "The combination of WiggleCRC and Bike24 will create a stronger pan-European Group, with increased scale and strengthened local sourcing and distribution networks."

Bike24 and the Bike24 brand will continue to operate as a separate business, within the WiggleCRC group.

Bike24 has some great deals! Wiggle has a few items that I buy because only a few of the online businesses stock them. Good folks.

Wiggle and CRC have some great deals, especially for us here in OZ where local prices are often quite high. I didn't know Bike24 existed until I read this article, looks like a decent setup :cool:

Bike24 has run some killer deals on smart trainers.

Wiggle, CRC, Ribble, Merlin, Excel Sports, Jenson USA, Bike Nashbar, Competitive Cyclist, BikeInn, ProBikeKit, Colorado Cyclist, BikeTiresDirect, Performance, Planet X And On One, R&A Cycles (how much money you got, kid?!), Planet cyclery...I shop them all with great success.
