About New York City Recumbent Supply and The Innovation Works, Inc.
The Innovation Works, Inc., (d.b.a., New York City Recumbent Supply) is a marketing, sales and corporate communications firm located in Brooklyn, founded in 1999. We started the New York City Recumbent Supply service in 2008 to provide something which was unavailable through New York Metro bicycle stores, namely introducing New Yorkers to 'bents, helping people learn to ride them, finding models that work well in the city, stocking a small selection that we think are the best for the money and working one-on-one with customers to make the process of buying a 'bent as pleasurable as riding one. We also organize regular rides so customers can enjoy their bikes with like-minded riders.
Our focus is on you, the customer. Owner/operator Robert Matson listens carefully to your aspirations and requirements so as to identify and acquire the right bike for your needs and find the right accessories for that specific bike. Since 'bents are a higher-end product compared to upright bikes and, by their nature, are unusual machines, we go to great lengths for our customers, even those who don't buy anything. We firmly believe this one-on-one approach is the only way to optimize a new 'bent owner's experience.
About Robert Matson. Robert is a bicycle commuter and short-distance tourer who rides year-around, through snow, sleet, rain and even sunshine.
