The Seattle Bike Expo is a haven for avid cyclists and granola eating – bicycle polo enthusiasts. The whole spectrum of cyclists is represented at the event which creates a fantastic vibe of enthusiasm and creativity. From the Donkelope booth to the Wooden Frame manufacturer, there is no shortage of niche representation. Larger companies such as REI, Specialized and local retailers also came out for the Expo balancing the equation.
Norco has been present for the event, displaying product for the new, the recent and the dedicated norco fans. Next time you are in the area, check out the Seattle Bike Expo and you too, could be seeing the latest and greatest from the big and the small, the new and the old. . .
Today was the first day of the 2009 Seattle Bike Expo. After spending the better part of yesterday setting up and starting off bright an early today, the show started off without a hitch. With approximately 200 vendors and more than 4000 visitors the show was a bustle of activity.
Taking a moment to look around there was everything from tandems to wooden bikes, retailers to distributors. There were people from all walks of life and all riding styles present. As with most events. . . . pictures speak louder than words!
This coming weekend Norco will be participating in the Seattle International Bike Expo located in Warren G. Magnuson Park. Showcasing highlights of the 2009 lineup along with Mace and Axiom Gear, be sure to check the blog for daily updates on show highlights. Better yet, if you are in the area stop by and say hello!
This is the time of year where we are busy preparing for the 2009 event season. Over the past few months at Norco HQ we have been analyzing the successful events of 2008 and looking where to go in 2009. This past year you could find the Norco trailer at events such as Seattle Bike Show, Sea Otter, Crankworx, and VPS Fest. We also conducted demo days across Canada and into the Western US. For 2009 you can expect to see us at all these major events along with demos in Washington and California, increased race support and tech support for the Ride to Conquer Cancer. Watch for the full 2009 event schedule to be released soon.
