Taipei Cycle Show 2010

Taipei Show was marked with excitement all around, especially for those interested in Taiwan quality. Many in the industry are now realizing the benefits in sticking with their investments in Taiwan.

It seems that quality, experience and expertise are pretty important after all!

Benefits being reaped include more independence with production, more stable production quality, more stable labour supply and a superior logistics infrastructure. Of course, we at Pro-Lite have known this all along and all we can do is just smile knowingly while huge companies like Merida and Kenda are starting to come back to their roots and put millions of dollars into expanding manufacturing and bringing production back to the little green gem in the Pacific.

That was the atmosphere at the show, but how was the atmosphere at the Pro-Lite Booth?

It was probably one of the most talked about booths, a result of our efforts to make an open, Leading figures in the industry chilling out and swapping ideas.friendly, cooperative and sharing environment. There were always people dropping by to visit from every end of the industry, from BMX to MTB DH, from Unicycles to parts and shipping magnates. Everyone was welcome and it was genuinely exciting to see ideas being exchanged  and discussed by people even from companies that are actually competitors.

And they even dropped by before the beer started flowing!

A notable comment was made byImage Bill Shook, one of the most respected wheel men in the industry, "If you make quality product, you have nothing to fear from competition." A great attitude from a great guy who makes great wheels.

By the time it was over, everyone was dog tired, but we all had a great time meeting old friends and making some new ones.
