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.
The QBP Catalog Is Dead!
Long Live The QBP Catalog!
The era of the printed “Industry Bible” has come to a close. Browse the Quality Bicycle Products collection of catalog covers and highlights, including the first 8-page photocopied “price list,” all the way up to our final 2016 print catalog.
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.
QBP’s Service Center is one of the most capable and comprehensive service centers for suspension and hydraulic brake related tuning and repair in the bicycle industry, all but eliminating the need for shops to keep an expensive inventory of parts in stock, or keep customers waiting to get back out on the road or trail.
QBP parents share their passion for cycling with their kids, strengthening the clan and creating lifelong cyclists.
To say QBP has some staff experience with multi-sport is a bit of an understatement.
