MEMPHIS, Tenn. (BRAIN) — 3T Cycling is naming Memphis’ Victory Bicycle Studio its first Customer Service and Repair Center for 3T wheels.

“This is a new, cutting-edge industry being created in Memphis, and it’s going to have a large, positive economic impact on the city of Memphis,” said Victory owner and CEO Clark Butcher.

Butcher founded Victory Bicycle Studio in 2010.

3T president René Wiertz said, “We are delighted to have made this alliance … Victory Bicycle Studio is a highly skilled outfit with all the resources needed to maintain and repair our wheels.

“We have no doubt Clark Butcher’s team at Victory Bicycle Studio will meet the high standards we set for 3T Service Centers. Our customers in the United States can buy our wheels with the assurance of world‐class service backup.”

Clark said he will focus on the socio-economically distressed community of Binghampton for the new 3T service and distribution center. With Victory Bicycle Studio already located in the neighborhood, Clark said the service center will continue to revitalize the area by staffing the center from youth of the neighborhood.

“My main goal for the repair and customer service center is for it to be located within walking distance to Binghampton,” Clark said. “I want to give young men and women in the community the opportunity to learn a skill that leads to a full-time career and clear path to prosperity.”
