Simon sticks it to them

Simon has walked off with the second 'product of the show' award in two weeks. Last weekend his LED-packed light stick - the Indicator Fireflute - got the Best Innovation Award at the SOLTEX ski show and today the front child seat imports from Canada won the Innovation award at the Cycle and Leisure Show (but, er, not to Universal acclaim)

Goude's Fireflute is packed with 20 ultra-bright LEDs and is powered by four AAA batteries. It's 280mm long and 25mm wide and is made from clear acrylic.

But it was the Centric Safe-Haven child seat which won the CLS Innovation award. This is the child seat displayed at Interbike 2001 and which is selling like hot cakes in North America.

Getting the Innovation Award was a good ending to the show for Goude, but it started badly. He turned up at the show to find that Universal was also claiming to be a distributor of the Centric Safe-Haven. Both companies submitted the same product into the new product awards yet it was Goude who got the most visitor votes so it was his Centric Safe-Haven child seat which won the Innovation award.
