The Bicycle Product Suppliers Association (BPSA), responding to the current and future needs of its members, has created an Electric Bicycle committee, chaired by Larry Pizzi from Accell North America, and President of Currie Tech.
The committee will meet by teleconference the week before Interbike to set priorities in the three areas of BPSA expertise and influence: Statistics, Safety, and Legal/Legislative.
“Our main goal is to establish a common and unified ‘electric bicycle’ voice amongst the supplier community,” Pizzi noted. “Now that we have a representative group of suppliers and manufacturers, we can set specific goals and take action.”
Besides Pizzi, committee members include:
Darren Snyder from Trek
Chad Price from Specialized
John Munhall from Giant
Zach Kraphl from Felt
Don DiCostanzo from Pedego
Jeffrey Young from Shimano
Claudia Wasko from Bosch
Rob Cappucci from SRAM
