Just got back from 5 days in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for Wheel & Sprocket’s annual Spring Bicycle Expo and, once again, Chris Kegel and his crew knocked it out of the park. Great weather made for some huge crowds looking to jump start the bike season. I was there to help out the Wheel & Sprocket recumbent staff that work out Read More

Top Notch Dealer in Brandon, MS.

Posted on by BAC_cms_adMin1
Most bicycle dealers have a passion for the business. I think recumbent bicycle dealers take it up a notch. Then there are few that like to take it up even further by sponsoring a weekly Saturday morning Bread Ride and a couple of very successful organized rides a year.

  Pamela called me one day with a challenge.  She wanted a Bella ATT but with a few specialty items.  Generally, Bacchetta is a “simpler is better” company, but you reach a point where you’ve got to try new things.  Remember I said that. When things went further than I could handle, I handed over the challenge to Mark at Read More
