SMOG Bicycles

The crew at Green Grips has some exciting news to share. We have partnered with SMOG Bicyclettes Urbaines. They are a new French bicycle manufacturer that is creating some pretty awesome looking bikes. They allow the customer to fully customize their new bike by selecting the colors for the wheels, tires, chain, saddle, grips and sheaths. The neat thing is each SMOG bike will come with Green Grips on the handlebars.

Lexco Open House – Success!

Last night we attended an open house at our Midwestern distributor’s warehouse in Norridge, IL. Lexco Bike distributes to about 350 shops, most of them being in the midwest. They are a great company and it is always fun to attend this show. We gave away a lot of product and received some great feedback. Shop owners seemed to really like our new heavyweight tape. It’s a great feeling to hear that customers love our product.  Below are a few pictures from the evening. Thanks again to Lexco for putting on this great show.
