Visitor from China

June 21, 2012

Bike Friday Beijing Dealer Xiangyu Zhao checking out the sights during his visit to Eugene, including the photo Steve Prefontaine at the Nike Store.

Bike Friday recently had the pleasure of hosting our Bike Friday Dealer from China, Xiangyu Zhao.

Zhao spent a few days at the Factory headquarters, observing our production line, discussing marketing and sales with our staff, but also spent time exploring Eugene.

Xiangyu watches Alan Scholz brazing a top secret project in the Bike Friday R&D area.


Xiangyu watches as Merle Rothweiler works on the finishing touches of a Bike Friday for one of Xiangyu’s customers in China.

Just like Bike Friday, Rolf Prima relies on handmade craftsmanship to set it apart.


Xiangyu Zhao spent some time cruising around Eugene on a Carbon Infinity tikit.

    Good luck to Xiangyu! I have been riding my Pocket Sport in Shanghai since last November, and although there are tons of folding bikes here (mostly cheap Dahons in various states of disrepair), I have yet to see another BF.
