Curious George jersey

Lots of clothing at the Seattle Bike Expo, including these Curious George jerseys by Primal Wear. I remember my parents reading these books to me, and I read them to my kids. Curious George really likes to go cycling; I can relate. The authors of Curious George also liked bicycling, and it probably saved their lives. “The Journey that Saved Curious George: the True Wartime Escape of  Margret and H.A. Rey” tells how they fled Paris on bicycles right ahead of the German army. True story.

Rivendell Saluki at Seattle Bike Expo

Though not exactly a Pacific Northwest bicycle maker, Walnut Creek, California-based Rivendell Bicycle Works is situated on the Left Coast. This Saluki model is tricked out for some heavy commuting or bike touring. Note the headlamp runs off a generator on the hub of the front wheel.

Curtlo Cycles at bike expo

While several foreign and domestic bike manufacturers peddle their wares at the Seattle Bike Expo, it's a showcase for bicycles made in the Pacific Northwest. Here's a bike from Curtlo Cycles in Wintrop, Washington. The company has been making steel-frame bikes for about 20 years. Road, cyclocross, tandem, mountain, take your pick.

Burley's new touring bike

First came the trailer, then the tandems, then the 'bents. Now Eugene, Oregon-based Burley is making touring bicycles. Chad put one on display at the Seattle Bike Expo. Although its been changed slightly by the local owner — for instance bar-end shifters instead of STI's, the relaxed angles of the steel frame are evident.

Cycle-Pak for traveling cyclists

Necessity is the mother of invention, and Michael Wilberding thought he'd share his invention with the world. This heavy-walled cardboard bicycle shipping box offers economical protection for bikes. Michael's been selling these for about six months and the Seattle Bike Expo was his first show. Visit his website at Cycle-Pak.
