National Quik-Stik Tire Changing Contest at a Pub

06.04.2008
Fullerton, California
National Quik-Stik Tire Changing Contest at a Pub

What happens at a Pub in Fullerton does not stay in Fullerton. No, the results of a raucous night sponsored by Fullerton Bicycles and California Bike Gear are available to be viewed by all who want to check it out. It's all recorded an up on YouTube. Eighteen contestants, including shop owner Mike Frenze and a few of his employees, took their shot at fame and a trip to Las Vegas for the Interbike 2008 show. Their goal was simple. To record the best time possible for the removal and replacement of a tire using the fastest tire changing tool in the land, Quik-Stik.

The competition began at the shop in Fullerton with a few trial runs on Tuesday, May 13. The competition began in earnest two days later at the appointed 7:00 pm hour. A local bike club supported by Fullerton Bicycles was planning to end their ride at the shop. After a few folks took their turn, their was general agreement that many of the riders may have ended up down the road at a local eatery/drinkery. This turned out to be the case. For a look at numerous wrong ways to win this competition, and a couple of outstanding results under 40 seconds, go to Youtube.com and search Quik-Stik.

Terry Brown, sales manager of California Bike Gear, observed: "This clearly shows that the contest can be a great event for the dealer. This was fun and involved 30 or so folks in a great time. Now the videos are all up on YouTube and there's another chance to build community as everyone watches and laughs at their fellow riders trying to beat the clock." Any independent bicycle dealer can hold a competition, in store, in pub, or anywhere they like. The benefit of having it in the store is the added publicity of the store brand being seen on the YouTube.

This competition was the latest group of local events in the ongoing national contest for Quikest Stik. All events must be held on or before August 18, 2008.
