R&E Newsletter: Tandems Are Back!

Looks like the Northeast and Northwest tandem dealers are all seeing a strong tandem market.

Our friends at Tandems Limited mentioned that they’ve had a very busy year thus far during recent discussions at their tandem rally earlier this month.

Apparently, our friends out in the Pacific Northwest at R&E Cycles have also been VERY busy… so busy that they haven’t released a newsletter since November 2010. However, we just received a July – August 2011 edition wherein Dan Towle confirms that R&E is firing on all cylinders.

While the Newsletter is clearly a marketing tool, it’s also a good source for insight into the domestic bike market and, specifically, taking the pulse of the Seattle market: a big bike market if there ever was one.

If you have some spare time, give it a read. Always lots of interesting things: http://www.rodbikes.com/archives/08_11_news_big.pdf.

Oh yeah, R&E is the home of Rodriquez, Bushnell and Trillium tandems and it’s where our long-time friend and one of the truly amazing American frame builders, Dennis Bushnell.






About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?
