ERGON HEADS TO FROSTBIKE
Every February the mega bicycle distributor, Quality Bicycle Product (QBP), holds an open house for all of its dealers at its home office in Bloomington, MN. This gives brands and bike shops the time to get face to face time on a personal level as well as get hands on with all the products that QBP distributes.
QBP is one of Ergon’s largest distributors in the USA. Chances are if you see Ergon on you bike shop store shelves…it comes from here. The Frostbike show and open house is one of those events the bike shop folks look forward to each year. This year was no different, as the masses invaded QBP to drool all over the latest bicycle tech.
Ergon is introducing many new products this year, including the GA1 which is seen above. New products also mean new colors and new bar plugs.
Ergon pressence at the event was small…but that didn’t mean we weren’t busy. Sharing a booth with Topeak, we hand numerous folks swing by to ask questions, see new product, try on the packs, and tell us how they can’t keep the product in stock.
What would Frostbike be without a little snow? It is Minnesota afterall. Take note how the Ergon employee brushes off the car in 10 degree temps with no gloves as the Ergon VP snaps pictures and laughs 🙂
“I am betting the snow was about this deep.”
Stay tuned, as we are heading to Indy for the N.A. Handmade Bicycle Show. Another recap with photos and video to come.
