This past weekend we attended the annual Frostbike tradeshow in Bloomington, MN. It was really exciting for us as this was the first time we actually got to interact with our dealers face to face. It was also the first time any of us saw all of the current All-City lineup in one place at one time. To make it even more exciting we were unveiling the first prototype of our track bike, which we are expecting to be available to the public as both a frameset and complete in the fall of this year.
My plan all along was to keep the bike covered for the first few hours of the show, then make a dramatic reveal at noon. Nothing piques peoples minds quite like a mystery and I was planning on milking this unveiling for all it was worth. However I soon realized that the only one I would be entertaining with such antics was myself and we decided to do without the theatrics. The product line looked great, and will only keep improving as we develop more products from the ground up in house. Our mission is to make a significant contribution to the parts available to riders, and this is just the beginning.
Anyway here are some shots of the booth and some long shots of the bike. Next week we will be posting detailed photos of this beast so stay tuned.
and this is my favorite. this is what a late night on the tradeshow circuit looks like. Our good friend DirtyKop has obviously bitten off a little more than he could chew.
