After Shimano recently signed on the dotted line, the IFMA organisers want to ram home the message that the Köln show is the number one European bike trade show. Mind you, thanks to Ryanair, Friedrichshafen's Eurobike show is still the easiest and cheapest expo to get to from the UK.

Köln’s IFMA gets Cannondale, Giant, Scott, Trek and…Muddyfox

Cannondale, Giant, Scott, and Trek will all be in Hall 14.1.

Universal’s Muddyfox will be in Hall 13.1.

“We have been receiving a large number of enquiries from European consumers for Muddyfox via our website," said brand manager Tony Wimpory.

"Now we need to establish a distribution network across Europe. The aim is to appoint a number of professional distributors capable of not only achieving strong sales but also supporting the product with the service and knowledge consumers expect to receive from a high end supplier such as Muddyfox.”

Dr. Regine Kalka, vice president House, Garden and Leisure at KölnMesse GmbH, thinks his show is a winner:

"Anyone who misses IFMA this year, will miss the annual impulse-provider for the bicycle sector – national as well as international."
