ERGON JOINS BRAIN DEALER TOUR IN PHOENIX

Ergon’s Sonya Looney went to Phoenix last week to meet with some of the key journalists from Bicycle Retailer, along with other sponsors of the BRAIN tour including Michelin, FRS, Interbike, and Giant.

Giant provided road bikes for the crew to ride from shop to shop, visiting 12 shops in 3 days.  Each shop owner had great stories about how their shop was started, how their business was different from other bike shops, why they carried the lines they did, and of course, lots other fun topics!

Here was the itinerary:

Day 1: DNA Cycles, Bicycle Ranch, Landis Cyclery and Bicycle Showcase

Dave Wiens joined the crew for the first day of the tour. Many bike shop employees were ecstatic to meet Dave. It was great to have him there!

Ergon grips were stocked on the wall in 9/12 shops with enthusiast users in the bike shops!  The rest of the trip can be summed up in photos.

  1. […] shops (very very mellow pace, not the crazy group rides I try to avoid) Here is the post on Ergon’s blog by yours […]

  3. Without question, your posts always makes for a interesting way to get the brain calories burning. Thank you for providing the community with a welcome pause from the day and chance to ponder.

    Despite what some readers grumbe, you have to believe that the basic concept of unified standards has merit.

    There is a clear need for further implementation options, though convergence in one manner or another would be wonderful, especially for the M&A community.
