Cyclofest at the White Water Rafting Center in Charlotte North Carolina has been fun and a big success. Just about all the major vendors and manufactures were present along with many local companies. The White Water Center used the top lot for most vendors to setup their tents for presentations and demonstrations. The area around the rapids section was used for racing, music, and hanging out.
I was impressed with the selection of bikes that were available for demo. From e-bikes to plus size bike there were many choices. There was definitely some common themes of what we should expect in 2017 from the Industry. One common theme was plus size tires on the demo mountain bike.
The exhibitor’s we very cool and provided outstanding service. Everyone was on point to show you their products or to help answer any questions. In addition we were impressed and surprised to see some of the owners/founders (as an example – IBIS) helping people demo bikes.
