QBP distribution has a very intentional mission: to bolster bike shop success by providing a high inventory of the best cycling products in the world, and reliably shipping those products to dealers exactly when they need it.
We believe that partnering with other companies is about much more than buying and selling stuff. It's about sharing a common vision and values. That's why we work with best-in-class vendors who are committed to achieving outstanding results. We team with partners who share our passion for making the world a better place through the power of bikes and business. Not only does this serve independent retailers and their customers, it serves the communities of which they are a part.

Lauren, Distribution Sales
Steve Flagg and Mary Henrickson founded Quality Bicycle Products in 1981 in a small office in St. Paul, MN. QBP was early to import hard-to-find mountain bike parts from suppliers in Japan, and business took off. As the company grew, so did the number of employees, the ability serve more dealers, and the opportunities to expand product offerings with new, in-house brands. Today, QBP is the industry leader in distribution, and its brands consistently create new categories in cycling.
ArtBike Poster Show
QBP’s Marketing Department includes a talented, hard-working in-house creative team. This winter, some of them took a break from designing graphics for bikes, socks, ads, events, videos, web pages, and more; and had fun making posters instead. The posters were displayed at QBP’s Frostbike Expo in February.
We create value for our community of dealers and vendors.
QBP hosts two major industry events each year that provide our partners with the opportunity to learn about our fantastic products/brands, make personal connections, and expand their business potential.
