CABDA Show This Week

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

CABDA Show This Week

CABDA - Chicago Area Bicycle Dealers Association - show is happening this Wednesday and Thursday.

Who is going?

My shop is 20 minutes from the venue FYI. I'll most likely be at the shop Wednesday and Thursday but I am sure I will be in the shop off and on as well. Especially Thursday afternoon into night.

To clear up the "?" from others - Interbike is gone. CABDA has been stepping up as a more popular option since they brought the show back about 4 years ago. So much so there is now a CABDA west coast, CABDA midwest, etc. Although....the C in CABDA is Chicago so saying CABDA midwest seems stupid...

Seems like a good time, and since I grew up in St. Charles would be a good excuse to go.... but Scottsdale sun is so nice this time of year! Hope the show continues to expand!

OK changing gears. I know a lot of forum users who are going they just don't visit the forum as much anymore. I'll post pics/stuff here.

Check my Instagram feed. I posted some stuff on there from yesterday but not much. I always suck at that because I am always trying to talk and do business and don’t look at stuff like the general public does.

In other words very few “ooooo” and “ahhhhh” from me.

I see that the shop I've been talking to about a fitting just won a giant trophy for shop of the year. That must be a good indication they are pretty decent, or that their prices are about to go up lol. Congratulations Bluegrass Bicycles just outside of Indianapolis!
