About Handlebars

Handlebars is a brand new start-up and part of the JustPark family. We are hugely enthusiastic about cycling & care deeply about helping people to travel around inner-cities without harming the environment. We are on a mission to repurpose spare parking spaces and offer a convenient place for bicycles to get fixed. Today, there are too few places for repairs and this problem will grow as more people start to use the trusty bicycle to travel from A to B. 

 

Cyclists using the Handlebars service will have access to:

 

  • Super convenient, central locations - our portable pods will be stationed in busy car parks throughout central London

  • Smooth, simple technology - our background is helping build tech for JustPark - a platform which allows drivers to pre-book parking. We are tech geeks and believe we have the right knowledge to build an awesome app which is easy for cyclists & mechanics to use 

  • Quality services - not only will our mechanics be the best in-class, we are a friendly company who is obsessed with giving our customers unbeatable services

 

The business is in its initial stages and the next major step is to run a pilot which will help to determine wider scale roll-out strategy. This is a rare opportunity to join a business from the beginning!
