Quality Bicycle Parts (QBP) is the largest distributor of bicycle parts and accessories in the industry. Many of the parts and accessories on the shelves in your local bike shop were probably ordered from QBP, yet interestingly, very few people have heard of them. QBP also owns the Surly, Civia, and Salsa bicycle brands; if you ride a Surly, Civia, or Salsa bicycle, you’re riding a QBP product.
Dirt Rag magazine recently published an interview with QBP founder Steve Flagg. Since QBP is such a powerhouse in the industry, but very few people have heard of them, I thought my readers might be interested in the interview.
