Portland featured in bike trade mag

Posted by on September 21st, 2005 at 9:28 am

A local bike shop owner and a local entrepreneur are featured in the October 1 issue of Bicycle Retailer & Industry News Magazine. Bike Gallery owner Jay Graves is featured in an ad for Electra Bicycles. The ad appears in Bicycle Retailer & Industry News magazine and features Jay aboard an Electra “Townie” bike. Jay is highly involved with the bicycle industry so it’s no surprise they chose him for the ad. Also, Jay happens to be the President of the Board of Directors of the the National Bicycle Dealers Association, which publishes the magazine.

In the same issue, local entrepreneur Chad Krueger is featured as one of the “Fab 5 Freshman” to attend this year’s Interbike trade show for the first time. Chad is the owner of Portland Cyclewear. He used to run a retail space in SE Portland with discounted, closeout cycling apparel. In a recent change of direction Chad has decided to close his doors and focus on a new business of making custom, vintage wool cycling jerseys. See you at the show Chad!
