|Sam wondering how he's going to spend the next 7 hours|
Sam and I took the Greenlite wares down to the Pedalers Fair in the Belltown district of Seattle yesterday. Jason at Swift Industries puts on the show, he designs it to be a showcase for locally made cycling products. It’s nice to see how many folks are out there making stuff and making things happen.

I’m a fairly quiet guy and I generally keep to myself and so it really means something when I can list off the following folks I knew at the show: Darren, Tarik, Ann, John, Jason, Juliette, Catherine, Aldan, and Thomas. Pretty dang cool.
As you can see by the photo I once again went overboard on my display. We had a six by six space to work with and I think we did a pretty good job. Thankfully Jason gave us some prime real estate – front row center.
Sam came down for the day, he helped be set up, tear down, brought me coffee and manned the booth during my many bathroom breaks – too much coffee drunk at these events. The Fair was held in the Underground Events Center, a bit wild for my Mercer Island boy. “This place is pretty sketch dad,” he said, to which I replied “sketch is good boy.” Sam referred to the restroom as the Heroin Bathroom.
The show was a success, I made some sales, but more importantly I got out there, listened to what people want in cycling gear and came away with a lot of positive feedback.
