    Small companies offering EP program?

    Hey all,

    Just wondering if anyone, off the top of their heads, knows of any smaller manufacturers that offer an EP program for industry employees? I know Transition does, any else you know of? I'm building up a light DH/shuttle rig and still need a frame

    Thanks
    Matt

    Transition offers a pretty good deal for shop employees and they are a hell of a company to boot. Give'em a ring.

    not sure but I think that for IH you have to be a dealer to get a ep form. But drop them a line. I know turner does as well. Most companies that are small will hook you up if you call them or send them a e-mail. Good luck

    What are the qualifications to receive the EP program...specifically from Transition? What qualifies as being in the "industry"? We can get some smaller brands like Cove and Astrix from BTI. In fact I think a Cove would be my next bike of choice, but heck if we can possibly prodeal from other companies that we are not affiliated with....there may be a Preston FR in the future!!!

    Astrix has an EP program and product directly available from us also because BTI only carries our most common sizes and models. We offer all sizes and models.

    Just drop us an email or give us a call also.

    You basically just have to work at a shop.

    Usually they'll ask for a pay stub or have your boss fill out a form.

    I know that when I worked at REI I contacted Banshee and got a ep from them, so just have to give the company a call and they might give you one.

    I'm a part-timer at REI. We use to be able to get Banshee through QBP, but we no longer have a QBP account.

    I probably won't be in the market for another bike for another couple of years, but I'll probably still be stuck at REI. Heck I'm on my 10th year there.
