It’s a risky business naming a brand after yourself. You of course will probably love your name, but others, well, maybe they’re just not that keen. Take Blackburn for example, a word that conjures up images of wild frontiers, tree lined trails and respect for tradition.
When founder Jim Blackburn first looked at the emerging bike culture back in 1975 and began making product’s uniquely from the user’s perspective, he didn’t think twice about planting his name on the finished product. Whether it was old world respect for a job well done, or just plain old expediency, Blackburn bags & panniers remain a fine choice for city and touring cyclist alike.
