I think folks outside the bike industry think October and November is the quiet time for us. This year has been another example of us staying busy into the fall. We had a container land last week with the new disc Pass Hunter and some other new parts. We have the Philadelphia Bike Expo this coming weekend. This means setting up the booth in our warehouse to get the display all ready to go. The new product has meant that some of the pre set up work has had to wait until the product arrived. So we've been flat out building demo bikes and new display's for the show.
Philadelphia is one of our big shows of the year, bigger in terms of size I think then NAHBS.
Philly attracts a wide selection of riders - tourists, commuters and racers even, although the focus tends to be towards the urban rider and the touring cyclist- our peeps!
We'll be having the world debut for the Disc Pass Hunter at the show this year. We've used Philly before as the debut show for frames. A few years back we introduced the Camargue there to an enthusisatic audience.
We'll also have displays of our racks, headsets and handlebars. We'll have a Piolet built up with 27.5 tires on it and the mojave cages on it. We'll also have a Camargue built up with Casey's crazy bars, so you can marvel at how many hand positions you can have. A Campeur will be set up with the Campeur racks front and rear so you can see how cool they are.
