Frostbike is an industry event created by Quality Bicycle Products that brings together a small number of bike shop owners and staff each year in February in Minneapolis Minnesota. QBP is home to a few of our favorite bicycle brands like Salsa, Surly and All-City. The event takes place over a weekend filled with small educational sessions and meetings, and culminates in a trade show hosted in the warehouse at QBP, and an afterparty presented by All-City Cycles. We shot a few photos of the show, enjoy, and always feel free to call the shop to ask about any new products you are curious about!
