QBP SaddleDrive – Park Tool, Pedro’s, Lazer, SixSixOne, Wahoo Fitness and more!

Components

QBP is the largest bicycle parts distributor in the US and they hold a special event every year for their top dealers and select media. The event is held in QBPs backyard (QBP West is based out of Ogden, UT. Their main world HQ is in Bloomington, MN) at the Snowbasin lodge and resort. It was a perfect setting, as dealers get to see and ride and test the bikes and gear first hand on their naturally terrain. Mtbr was fortunate enough to be in attendance to see all the latest from QBPs own brands (like Surly, Salsa, Civia, All-City and more) as well as other featured manufacturers and partners.

Besides the big news about the new Salsa Beargrease and the Surly Krampus, other brands displaying their latest parts and accessories were: Park Tool, Pedros, Lazer Sport, Wahoo, Finish Line, White Lightning, SixSixOne, RockShox, Ridley and Foundry. Here are a few of their highlights.

Park Tool
Our old friend, Calvin from Park Tool was showing the new INF-1 from Park Tool, an air compressor shop inflator (perfect for those tubeless/UST tire installations!) I asked Calvin if he could tell me what new stuff Park will have at next month’s Interbike trade show and he gave us a teaser. The hint is: “It is made for you if you have a bad back or a really heavy bike.” Guesses?


Pedros
Yes, Pedro’s is still around! The company has undergone some changes, but they are working hard to improve and streamline operations, delivery and product features. Highlighted here is the new Pedro’s Mini Pit Kit – same price, now includes tools! Tire levers, folding hex tool, toothbrush cleaner, frame brush, sponge, rag and more fit in the handy bucket for storage and space to add your favorite cleaners and lube. Retail price of the Pedro’s Mini Pit Kit remains $49.99. Also, still readily available are Pedro’s extensive line of cleaners and lubes.
