Frostbike 2014 mega gallery

Fat bikes, cyclocross bikes, new tires, tools and more

Frostbike, for the uninitiated, is the annual tradeshow held by North America’s largest bicycle parts and accessories distributor, Quality Bicycle Products.

Held every winter at QBP’s headquarters in Bloomington, Minnesota, the event showcases the latest bicycles and accessories that the distributor has to offer independent bicycle dealers. It's a chance for shop owners and employees to pick the brains of manufacturers, to brush up on their tech knowledge, and to get the scoop on new products. BikeRadar was also on hand to get a glimpse at some of the new products that will be gracing bike shop shelves this spring.

This year the standout items were a number of new fat bikes and fat bike accessories. Though there also many more traditional items for road and mountain biking on hand as well.
