DannyShane Hits The Big Apple

After a brief intermission, DannyShane was back on the exhibition floor in May for the Bike Expo New York.

Serving as the official Packet-Pickup location of the Five Boroughs Bike Tour, the event drew more than 50,000 cyclists and visitors. This made for a very busy two days at Basketball City (Lower East Side) as people from all over the world stopped by for a little bit of touching and feeling our bamboo jerseys.

The Bike Expo New York is always a special treat as we get to have a little bit of fun along the way in New York City - this time we had the pleasure of celebrating the DannyShane launch at Ciel Bicycles - customers had a chance to meet and talk with the Designer, Shane Hunt, in a casual bike-shop atmosphere.

In New York City, DannyShane is available at Paragon Sports and now also at Ciel Bicycles.
