In the men’s division, Ritz finished the course in 18:28. His 2-speed Brompton S2L-X sped along the 6.2 mile course. David Wilcox of Broadway Bicycles in Jamaica Plain, MA, was the Men’s favorite rider but the time it took for him to unfold his bike at the beginning of the race was his blunder.

When top designer Mark Sanders mentioned that the market is too focused on getting expensive and high-end bikes to the public, the resounding result is an unexpected rise on sales of budget folding bikes.

UK retailers Argos claims that there has been a 500 percent increase on demand of budget folding bikes. This is in comparison to last year’s sales. They believe that the trend shall continue to increase and spread due to two main factors. The first one is the rise of fuel costs which pushes commuters to choose riding a bike instead of the car and the second is the good weather forecasts that inspires cyclists to go for the greener solution instead.

Portland Design Works, a newbie exhibitor with only just over a year in the bicycle retail scene, attended the trade show with hopes to expand their reach around the globe. Erik Olson, co-founder of Portland Design Works, was quite pleased to have found distributors in Japan and Australia and hopes to target UK next.

Their 10×10 booth space was located in the far corner of the fourth floor hall but Olson was able to close deals on the distribution of their company’s aftermarket line of commuter accessories. Olson said that next year, they will go for a bigger booth (10×20) because the price is also reasonable.
