Once again this is the time of the year again when the biggest bike show on earth takes place again in beautiful Friedrichshafen right next to the Bodensee. The EUROBIKE SHOW 2017. I cannot count anymore how many times we have been there , but i think it was 15th year with a booth down there. For us the show is the big thing, its a chance for us to meet our friend, customers, dealers, and distros from around the globe. And for this year the show marks down our "10th Anniversary" with Stereo Bike Co. , wow what a blast. And of course we drink the whole show and made a "Prost" for this decade of bicycle motocross. And you know what, we are still hungry for some more decads of these simple and way amazing letters. Since the late 70s and early 80s which is now almost 40years or let is say 4 decades ago when i discovered bmx as the thing to go, the love never dissapear through these decades. it was always around and still there, and today with of course less riding the loeve still pumps. juhhuuuu.... as we say, how thankful can i be for that gift. Lets go back to the show event....
We arrived tuesday late afternoon, and due to our booth size we were fast build it up and enjoyd the beautiful sun and a cold beer outside on lake bodensee. Right after sunset we dropped down our stuff on our flat and headed down to our favorite italian restaurant for tons of pasta and beers.

Of course couple of some ice cold beers and nice talks went on. Later the day we headed down to our friend guido tschugg how made a really nice party while celecbratin his masters dh title (yeah world champ...once again well done). You must know guido is an ex bmx racer from back in the days and then hopped over to the mtb scene. Okay with lots beers in our heads we went sleep very fast, but damn to short.
