Bike Shop: 5-Year Financial Model

If you were thinking about opening up your own bike shop, this template will be of great value in planning out all the financing, financial performance expectations, and minimum initial investment requirement based on the defined assumptions.

After purchase, the template will be sent to the PayPal/Purchasing e-mail. This is included in the industry-specific financial model bundle.


The model is robust. There are assumptions for all revenue granularity you can think of, dynamic inventory purchasing, freight costs, potential for an exit value per EBITDA multiple (12-month trailing from exit month), investor contributions, and senior debt if applicable.

Revenue is defined by the following:

  • 3 Bike Categories
  • 5 Bike types within each category
  • 5 slots for parts and accessory sales
  • Starting sales per month per bike type
  • Average sale price per bike type
  • Average markup per bike type
  • Repairs expected per month by year
  • Expected average ticket price per repair event
Note, based on the expected sales and resulting cost of goods sold, the user will be able to enter the number of months that inventory is to be purchased in advanced for. This will define the actual cash flow per month / year as the COGS (excluding freight) will be added back and the actual inventory purchase is reduced.

Based on the number of units purchased each time, the user can define a schedule for the total freight cost based on various levels of volume purchased. The user can define if purchases happen every 'x' months, whatever that might be and cash flow will be affected accordingly.

Regular operating expense are defined in a robust schedule that lets the user define the item description, start month, and monthly cost in each of the five years. Also, this is where any costs directly related to revenue can be defined as a percentage. This is designed to be a direct cost catch-all if you were unable to account for something in the other assumption logic.

There are also one-time startup costs and capex schedules.

If an exit month is chosen, any senior debt that remains will be paid back on that month and flow through to cash flow. 

Final reports include:
  • Monthly and Annual Profit and Loss detail (shows all the assumptions within the model timeline and drives down to EBITDA / cash flow
  • Executive Summary (high level financial line items on an annual basis)
  • Distributions (contains the DCF Analysis for the project and for the owner and investor equity legs if applicable.
Also, there are visualizations that give an overview of the key results, sales and revenue per bike category, and monthly / cumulative cash position.
