One of my best experiences in the bicycling industry was working for QBP. The company is pushing barriers and moving things forward. They have taken another large step forward to creating a better bike industry by offering summer internships at their headquarters, for women.  Read through the press release for full details, or skip to the link at the bottom to apply!

In its second year, the Women's Bike Mechanic Scholarship program is helping change the face of the bike industry. The program is geared towards bike shop girls only; awarding ten full scholarships to current bike shop girls to attend a two week, in-depth, bike mechanics...

As a rep for Quality Bicycle Products I have many bikes that are ridden and driven all around the Southeast. They are *all* considered demo's, so if you are in the southeast and want to try out one of my bikes let me know in the comments or drop me a line on the contact page.

As I am figuring out the balance of being an outside rep in the large territory of the Southeast, doing a shop I am absolutely in love with and trying to get back on my bike I am left with the daily struggle of finding...

While at the Surly Intergalactic Headquarters of QBP I was able to demo a few bikes for commuting purposes from my abode to the headquarters. While there was also a Civia I haven't put up yet, there is a Surly Troll that also busted a friends hip on the black ice across the Minneapolis pavement.
It has been in the works for four months. Countless phone calls, questioning, heckling and hounding. This is the bike industry right?
