Hello,

I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan and ride a road bike and a Bacchetta short wheel base recumbent. I ride approx. 1200 miles a year, mostly on trials and the road. I usually ride with two friends. I am married with three grown children. I am the Business Development Manager for Cycle-Safe, Inc. We manufacture bicycle lockers and bike racks. I am glad to be a new member to BikeForums.

Welcome, JCooley800. As a transportation cyclist living in Portland, OR, I'm sure I'm quite familiar with your employer's products.

Welcome, JCooley800! Now I'm tempted to research your company online to see what you manufacture. Enjoy your time here.

Welcome to BF! Nice products. I think I have seen some of those racks around the Holland area. Nice 'bent too. Gotta try one of those sometime.

Cycle-Safe lockers in Portland

There are many Cycle-Safe bike lockers in the Portland area. I am glad you have noticed them. What do you think of them?

Yeah, great products there. I would like to see some of those custom bike racks added to the existing Dutch style downtown area in Zeeland.

Welcome to the forums! I'm hoping you'll be able to walk on the right side of that fine line between soliciting input regarding your products, and outright advertising or marketing.

Of course, if you pay for a membership, you'd be able to advertise in the For Sale forum...only $25...

I am sure if you are open about your association with the company, people wont object to you joining discussions on these types of products. Input from members may contribute to improvements and variations to fit special needs.

I totally agree, and encourage his participation. But some guys abuse the forums for their own gain.
