Nine13sports® is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes health, wellness, and exercise for local youth in the central Indiana area. One of their programs – Kids Riding Bikes® – is a unique take on cycling that uses technology to make bike riding a fun, indoor, social event for kids.
When Nine13Sports needed new cables for their array of smart-bikes earlier this year, they turned to MCC account executive Mike Marston for a solution.
“Tom was looking for a bundled cable assembly that he could use in his organization’s Kids Riding Bikes program. Specifically, one that would alleviate some of the clutter of multiple cables going from each bicycle to the main computer input. After supplying Tom with our initial assemblies, we continued to service the cables by doing periodic repair work on them. During this process we realized that a more robust all metal connector would be a much better fit for these assemblies. We offered our solution to Tom and made the necessary changes to the assemblies. Since then, we have also switched to a more flexible jacket that won’t tear as easily after repetitive uses. These types of proactive maintenance measures give these assemblies an even longer lifecycle, saving our customer time and money in the long run.”
Nine13Sports CEO Tom Hanely has been pleased with the new cable assemblies.
“The team at Major Custom Cable is crucial to the operation of our organization. Using custom cables has saved our team countless hours when it comes to equipment setup and tear-down, and saved wear and tear on our equipment. Each cable gets used a minimum of 200 times a year, and the durability is unmatched. Mike, and the customer service team are always available for questions, comments, and suggestions, and the customer service is exceptional; allowing us to focus on getting thousands of Kids Riding Bikes per year.”
