Hello to All,

Bike Erie has always utilized American Specialt <https://americanspecialty.com/>y. We insure for slow rolls, our board of directors and bike repair.  

Thank you to everyone for keeping this valuable information group going.

They have never had issue with our operations and are always willing to adjust our coverage for any other random stuff we do- parties, rides, mobile fixery, etc. You should be able to contact them directly for more info.

Our program requires the primary operations to involve the insured manufacturing bicycle components, assembly, or a bicycle store selling bicycles, renting them, etc.  As this risk is offering space, tools, and assistance for customers to repair their own bicycles, it no longer fits".

Even more weird because they are dropping you out of the blue, even though your organization has an excellent history with the insurer, all while they appear to be determining your organizations risk appetite.  I think they are using subtle legalize to convince Bikerowave that they can't have insurance with them anymore.  When in actuality, this is probably not the case at all.  Your organization may want to talk to an attorney.
