From our own correspondent


Jim’s Bike Blog sometimes calls on the work of its foreign correspondent: Ben Peipert in Taiwan.
Ben credentialBen, our oldest son, lives in Taipei, the Taiwanese capital. Last month, he attended the Taipei International Cycle Show, billed as Asia’s biggest showcase for makers of bicycles and cycling components.
This year’s 25th edition of the show — March 20-23 — featured 1,103 exhibitors, 291 from overseas and 812 from Taiwan. The number of exhibitors was slightly more than last year’s 1,092.
Ben, an excellent photographer and regular bike commuter in Taipei, reports that this year’s show was somewhat disappointing — photographically.

Nevertheless, Ben got some nice shots of the wares on display.
