Each month we run a web reminder like this one, telling suppliers we're after stuff in a particular sector or two. The ones we're chasing right now, are:
- Parts and accessories: bottle cages and bottles, seats & posts, handlebars & grips
- Security – Bike locks and Datatag-style systems
The features list is always available on this website here and the Spokesman page in the mag also carries monthly reminders.
And now there's a new and virtual way of putting a knot in your trade hanky: subscribe to this Google bike events calendar. It lists global trade shows, significant UK events as well as the BikeBiz copy deadline days and sector guide requirements. Google calendars are dead clever: configure to your heart's content and events can even be sent to your mobile phone.
If you prefer, the same calendar is also available in iCal format. View it online here, and subscribe in the normal way.
Please email all product info and pix to email@example.com. Officially, the deadline has passed so if you haven't sent in any stuff you'd better hurry.
HINT: when sending info and pix please cherry-pick the products you want to see in the mag. If you send a PDF of every product you carry, your fave ones may not get picked.
