Every year local Taiwanese riders and international guest put on a bmx demo outside of the Nangang Exhibition Hall. With the light rain riders were reluctant to try any big tricks or ride the ramps. They did reach deep into the bag and pull out some tricks from the past.

  Something else that can be seen in almost every booth are women. It would appear that the bike industry in Taiwan is made up of young attractive ladies.

 Yeah I'll stick to the Vancouver bike show, not the Taipei toy show.
  • 1 0
 To be honest I've been to different shows before and the Vancouver show currently is not a bike show. It will grow and get better but lets be honest there were around five companies there. The rest is the local shops selling the previous years inventory. At the moment it is more of a garage sale with some fun kids events, a great charity event and a trials demo. I have all the faith in the world that it will grow and improve, but until we start seeing more manufactures and brands there I wont be back. I'll be riding.
