Located in Burlington Ontario, Sziara Innovations Inc. was incorporated in 2015, conducts business across Canada, and is the parent company of RideFATbikes.ca and Sziara Sound. CEO Peter Clark studied at Boston University, and has been an active cyclist for over 25 years, with a professional background in Computer Information Technology and Aerospace Engineering.
Sziara Sound originated in 1997 and has been hand-designing and fabricating studio-grade acoustic loudspeakers for homes and businesses. Some of our clients in southern Ontario include art galleries, where absolute spatial clarity of sound is essential for their business environment.
RideFATbikes.ca is a cycling business focused on custom frame-up building and importing of high-end fat bike componentry. We research the latest components and Industry trends, operating under a JiT (just-in-time) operations model, providing our clients with brand new, state-of-the-art cycling frames and components with ZERO shelf life.
We offer free delivery of custom built fat bikes to your home or office in the Toronto GTA-west area, within 75km of Burlington Ontario.
After several years of working in and researching the Industry, including testing over 30 different fat bike designs, it was finally time to apply this knowledge, to accomplish two business goals which inherently disrupt previous marketing trends :
- Establish a new Stack and Reach sizing model to fit riders to their bikes, by communicating with Fat Bike manufacturers in 2016 and encouraging them to change the way they declare the frame sizes of their bikes. (Instead of seat tube height and top tube length, they now standardized over the last year and use Stack and Reach). The result of our work is creatively shared, and can be found here >> (Stack and Reach link)
- Operate under a fully customized and mobile service delivery model, bucking the outdated "brick and mortar" bike store approach from the 1980's. Off the shelf "stock" models is the old way of thinking, and provides "the best of what previous years had to offer". We provide the best that TODAY has to offer in Fat Bike technology.
We empathize with our customers by solving their Fat Bike purchase inquiries, by delivering well-designed Fat Bikes, that fit well, and are tricked out with the latest Industry tech componentry standards.
We do the hard work, so the customer can focus their free time on adventuring with their Fat Bike, appreciating the special freedom this sport of cycling brings to all four seasons.
