Gruppo Bici N.A. Introduces Designer Bicycle Bag Collections

June 11, 2009

Editor’s Note: Another press release for your pleasure……….

 

BOULDER, CO USA (June 11, 2009) Gruppo Bici N.A. announces today the release of designer bicycle pannier, shopper, seat bag, fixie top tube protector and tube sac collections by Canditalia S.r.l.

“We are excited to introduce a collection of designer bags for bicycles under the Canditalia brand,” says Gruppo Bici N.A. company spokeswoman D’Abria Versace. The designer bicycle bags by Canditalia include the B-Berry, Doppio G and Louie V, collections resembling Burberry, Gucci and Luis Vuitton fabrics, respectively.

“The designer vinyls are remnants, not considered first-quality or replica,” states spokeswoman Versace. “Instead of ending up in a landfill as waste, we are able to upcycle vinyls that do not meet the stringent requirements of the designer. Though the materials are two- to three-times the cost of non-designer vinyls, we consider the scenario a win-win.”

Introducing the collections in the United States, Gruppo Bici N.A. is offering wholesale pricing direct to consumers for a limited time. “We recognize that consumers are making purchases with economic forces in mind,” D’Abria Versace says. “As a result, we are offering wholesale pricing direct to consumers through July 4, 2009; this offer also applies to our Atala, Carraro and Umberto Dei bicycles while supplies last.”
