Earlier today we announced to the world that we would be moving our manufacturing into a new 18,375 square foot expansion. Although the news did not come in a traditional format. Take a look.
There’s no one better equipped to talk about our most innovative products than our owner, Chris Fortune. Since the day Chris and his wife, Sara, purchased what was once Graber Products, Chris has taken up a personal mission to test every rack that leaves our headquarters here in Madison, WI.

Twenty-six years ago, my wife Sara and I bought the company Graber, now known as Saris Cycling Group. With the support of my father-in-law and former President of WMC, Phil Hendrickson, and his connections to the UW-Stout Technology Transfer Program, we have been able to manufacture products here is Madison, WI, and compete on a global scale. We now have over 200 employees selling our Saris (bicycle racks for vehicles, bike parking & bike storage products), CycleOps (indoor trainers and indoor cycles) and PowerTap (bike performance training aids) products into over 60 countries globally. We could not have come this far without our “for cyclists, by cyclists” mentality. We simply believe in the bike.
Caleb of Somerville, Massachusetts!
Out of nine top, state-winning posters Caleb’s was selected as the winner by over 1,500 online voters. Caleb will be flown to Washington D.C. for the 2016 National Bike Summit and his school will receive bike parking for 20 bicycles and The Hub, our transit tracking system.
There’s no doubt about it – the bike industry needs more women. From enthusiastic sales staff to knowledgeable mechanics, the bike shops of today are becoming more attuned to the fact that women in their store can make a big difference. More women on staff and in management can help create a more welcoming space for shoppers, all while connecting newcomers to an established community of cyclists.
With the launch of the C1 chainring cycling power meter, PowerTap became the first and only brand to offer multiple ways to measure power under one name.
This year’s theme: #LongForTheRide
