    Arrow Present perfect with "after"?

    "A lot of bikes have been sold even on the first day after the showcase."

    Is this sentence is correct?

    Also, by meaning with the showcase, I don't say any particular time when that showcase happened.

    Re: Present perfect with "after"?

    I would use the past tense there.
