MINNEAPOLIS, MN (BRAIN)—Freewheel Bike Midtown Bike Center is holding its first Winter Bike Expo on Saturday, with seminars, supplier booths and a snow bike criterium to welcome in the new season.
The retailer hopes the event will soon become the national kick off to what it says is one of the fastest growing categories in cycling: snow bikes. Freewheel is one of the country's largest distributors of studded tires and snow bikes.
Dave Pramman, a past winner of the Arrow Head 135 winter bike race, will be among the experts making presentations at the expo. Representatives from Surly and Salsa also will be on hand, and new winter tires from Finland and the Minneapolis brand 45North will be on display.
