Taipei Cycle Forum
Another highlight of this year’s Show was the Taipei Cycle Forum, which expanded to two days, running Thursday and Friday (1st & 2nd November). Experts from different fields from Taiwan and other countries shared in person and tackled such trending issues as e-bike trends and design; the EU’s anti-dumping tariffs on Chinese-made e-bikes; smart manufacturing, and e-mobility. All the real cases were worth our attention to understand and change the information into the power to move cycling industry forward.
