Who we are Gear UpGear up is Laramie’s number one hot spot to find the perfect season bike and all of the essential gear. Stay safe, shred hard, and maximize performance! • Chelsea Combe- Chelsea is a retired professional motocross superstar! Due to injury she focuses her love for biking through Gear Up. Chelsea is the local CFO and has a strong financial background. • Justin DiRe- Justin is the best motorcycle mechanic in the business. Working with the likes of Travis Pastrana and Bubba Stewart in the past, he opened this establishment in 2008, and is currently the CEO of Gear Up • Stephanie Domenico – Stephanie grew up around dirt bikes, and after obtaining a degree in marketing, she is now the COO of Gear Up. Stephanie can direct you to the perfect season bike, or help you find gear to fit your needs. How we got started In 2008 Justin was driven to open up his own dirt biking business. Although he was more than qualified, pairing up with Stephanie and Chelsea was the finishing touch. By combining their skills and financial backgrounds they were able to successfully establish Gear Up in the spring of 2008. Ever since the grand opening, Gear Up has been named the best bike shop in Wyoming. Gear Up’s popular online branch launched in 2010, allowing us to reach customers from even the most remote locations. Whether you visit us in store or online, you’re sure to find the best prices on the highest quality parts and accessories.
Online Marketing • Banner ads, on Facebook and other websites, can help bring attention to our online store. • We will sponsor a motocross rider, and have him wear gear with our logo on it. This can bring attention from other motocross enthusiasts outside of the Laramie area, and they will become interested in our online store. • Storefront Marketing • Advertising in the Boomerang, as well as newspapers in Northern Colorado, to help bring as much exposure to our store as possible. • Radio advertisements could be huge in this town! People remember radio ads and jingles. If you grew up in CO, you still remember the Shane Co. radio ad, for example. • We could place coupons inside the Sunday paper, or even leave some at places where dirt biking enthusiasts frequent (repair shops, car dealerships, Wal-Mart even?)
