Attention Bike Industry!
Our friend in the UK, Carlton Reid, sent me the following email this morning and he has graciously offered to allow me to post it here. Carlton is the editor of BicycleBusiness in the UK. If you do not already receive a copy of this magazine and are a member of the cycling industry, get in touch with Carlton and the subscription folks there and get signed up for your copy.
BicycleBusiness is essentially the British version of Bicycle Retailer and Industry News (BRaIN) that we have here in the US (but totally different owners and staff). Having a look at how business is done and how it is doing in a different market can be a very beneficial and enlightening thing. Personally, I think it's foolish to not take up this offer... but I have been known to have some crazy opinions.
A message for those who don't get mailed with BicycleBusiness
