I am delighted that everything went together well and the stand looked very smart. We had extra seating and a table this year which gave us a chance to sit down and chat with our visitors.
The electric bike test ride area was laid out slightly differently this year and we were able to have our gazebo just across the aisle from our stand. We had five bikes in the test ride area where Ralph and Debbie were able to set riders off around the test track. There was a nice hill too, which was optional.
Considering the size of the test track the mileages on the bikes were impressive. The Breeze we can only estimate as it has no means of recording distance, but we are estimating 40 miles. The Dash was 41.4 miles and the Dash Pro 48.6. The Diamond Pro achieved 47.1 and the Granite Pro was most popular at 52.2 miles. This gives a total for the four days of 236.6 miles! This is an amazing 100 miles more than last year.
We talked to lots of people over the four days, from existing dealers to potential dealers and existing customers to potential customers. It was lovely to hear everyone’s stories and enthusiasm for our electric bikes. Thank you to everyone who came to see us.
Datatag were at the show with their own stand explaining how the system is very effective as a theft deterrent. Batribike electric bicycles and electric trikes all come with Datatag fitted as standard. The orange Granite Pro featured on the data tag stand.
The Cykell tow-ball mounted bike carrier had a huge amount of attention too. We have an excellent display stand that has a tow-ball on it so that we can demonstrate exactly how the system works. The advertising panel on the stand shows the rack mounted on a roller coaster - it really is that secure! Everybody that saw it was impressed by it’s quality and ease of use. I am sure it will be THE name in cycle carriers in the near future.
Now we have a short time to recover before we are back at the NEC for the Motorhome and Caravan Show in less than two weeks time.
