PORTLAND LOVES ERGON
This week, we are doing dealer tours in Portland, Bend, and Eugene. Portland is known for its commuters, particularly the hipsters. However, we noticed that the commuters were not just hipsters, but people of all kinds including the 45 year old single mom commuting to work in a dress, grandma on her way to the grocery store, men in suits, and of course, average joe. In addition, the bike paths were congested with recreational riders simply enjoying the day. Is it a coincidence that Oregon sounds like Ergon?
There are a multitude of specialty bike shops in Portland including several COMMUTER-ONLY stores, and a mountain bike ONLY store.
Fat Tire Farm sells only fat tire bikes.
After two days in Portland and twenty bike shops, we moved the Ergon party to Eugene, OR to visit our friendly dealers.
