One of the big issues we always have here at J&P Cycles is trying to make sure we have a good offering of parts for our customers to choose from. This may seem easy to some, but it usually turns out to be a real challenge. There are a lot of things to consider when adding parts into the product line.

Editor’s Note: This is the first in a series of blogs from Chris Hagest over at Low and Mean. Chris is currently working on a customization for J&P’s 35th anniversary Bolt.
