About the Midwest Framebuilders Gathering

Welcome to a first in the La Crosse area. The Mid-west Frame Builders Gathering is a show that will bring builders from our region together to display our hand-crafted bicycles. The exhibitors will range from seasoned, to hobby builders. All are welcome.

We should mention admission to the show is free for registered riders. We should also mention it is $5 for the general public to attend. If you are a NICA Racer your entry is free.

The show is designed to bring builders together, so we can collectively strengthen our craft, and network with other builders. Bikes will be on display to the public and registered riders all day Saturday June 12th. The Bergsteiger Century Ride will follow on Sunday the 13th.

The rules are pretty simple. We want only U.S. or Canadian frame builders to display their bikes. We would like all parts and component manufacturers to be U.S made. Any variation of this rule may be discussed with MWFBG staff, but your chances are slim.

Rules:

1. booths will be 10x10. We have a lot of space, so if the venue does not fill up, we can spread out.

2. You can bring banners, we have a great spot for them to be hung. If you would like to bring display props that is fine, but plan on a 10x10 spot for now. As registration numbers come in, space may increase, but it will not be less than 10x10.

3. Power will be limited, so if you have a special request to have power at your booth, we will try to accommodate, but no promises.

So, whats it going to cost me? That's easy, $100. This is the first year, we want people/vendors to attend, so lets keep it affordable.

So what does $100 get me?
1. A 10x10 expo space, with fantastic banner placement.
2. Entry (credentials) for 2 people.
3. 2 Beer chips to be redeemed from our local brewery's. (Root Beer available)
4. Free camping on Saturday night (2 people) additional people $10 a piece.
5. 2 entries into the Bergsteiger Century on Sunday.
6. Lunch on Sunday. Additional meals may be purchased for $10.
7. 1 First annual commemorative t shirt.
8. Mention on web site, and social media.
9. Really? Its a pretty good deal.
10. One year to plan for the derby next year??? Perhaps.

Load time will be from 7 am - 9:30 am on Saturday. We will have assigned booth locations. We will show our bikes all day long, and enjoy beer and music. The expo hall will close at 6 for the public, and we can enjoy some time getting to know each other. Candle light is optional.

The bikes will be stored in a secure room. Builders may feel free to bring cable locks, or chains if you wish. Neither The Mid-West Frame Builders Gathering nor the Bergsteiger Century will be responsible for missing, damaged, or stolen items.
