The NSB Shop HQ Grand Opening party was a huge success. A big thank you to all who came by last Friday night to take in our new retail space here at the North St headquarters. We were able to show off our full line of product and share it with friends and fans alike in an environment that really does the line justice.
While the weather wasn't all that we had hoped for on a late spring evening here in Portland, we were still lucky enough to be able to roll open our overhead door, drag out the beanbag toss boards, and share some snacks and beers with our pals.
Also, big ups to the good folks at Ti Cycles who dropped off a loaner bike for the shop, on which we are showcasing some limited edition Route 7 bags below. This bike was their NAHBS entry this year, which features the brand new Shimano Steps E-assist motor, married to an electronic Di-2 Alfine 11 internal geared hub, via a Gates belt drive.
It's pretty slick technology all around and it's worth a visit just to check out this bike!
All in all we were thrilled to kick off a new retail venture with those closest to the brand and offer a small token of our gratitude for the support along the way. As part of our thanks, we're giving away a Route 6 bag to our favorite Instagram post from the evening, and a Handlebar Pouch to the runner up. We'll be announcing the winners of the contest shortly, so stay tuned!
