FRYEBURG, ME (BRAIN)—Downeast Bicycle Specialists Open House has been expanded to cover two days this year, with the first day being dedicated to vendor presentations and the second day following the traditional open house format. It takes place March 5 - 6.
Dealers are encouraged to come up either Friday evening or Saturday morning and stay for the entire weekend, according to a press release. Saturday's event will be held at the Green Granite Inn in North Conway, Maine (which will also be offering discounted room rates), and will feature product presentations by Shimano, SRAM, and Hutchinson, among others. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided, and the event will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday's Open House will be held at Downeast Bicycle, and will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. More than 30 vendors will be in attendance on Sunday, and lunch will be provided.
The Open House will give dealers a chance to check out some of the new lines Downeast has added for the coming year, including NoTubes, DeFeet, Hutchinson tires and Axiom bags.
Downeast now carries products from more than 130 suppliers. The 2011 catalog, which will be in shops by the first week of March, is over 400 pages long, and contains more technical and product information than in previous years.
