In search of our second authentic Taiwanese experience we went to Snake Alley. The plan was for Karl to drink a shot of whiskey mixed with snake blood. We were offered snake soup, snake meat and several other traditional Taiwanese dishes.
Snake Alley where dreams come true.
It took a while to get through Taipei traffic on Wednesday morning. It could have been because they had this guy directing traffic.
Birds eye view of the Nangang Exhibition Hall. The first and fourth floors are jammed pack full of all things bike related.
Race Face 2011 on the left and Race Face 2012 on the right, what a difference a year can make.
Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou arrived for the opening of the show with his entourage hot on his heels.
OGNS had two hippos helping promote their booth, Captain Taiwan was running around promoting his company's product and a sexy booth girl was walking around with her pet monkey. Who's booth do you think saw the most traffic?
SR Suntour has been making a major push over the past couple of years. First look at their new downhill fork. Stay tuned to Pinkbike for a full release on this new fork shortly.
It might be a bit early to hand out the booth of the show award, but with an island style hut complete with coffee bar, Kind Shock has to be the day one front runner.
Ollie Thomas has made some major changes to Kore since joining the company last year.
In 1982 E.T. rode a Kuwahara off into the sunset. It's 30 years later and the Japanese company is still making some amazing looking bikes.
Druggist is technically not incorrect, but it is not something we would see in Canada. I can only guess what Brappers and Skin Food specialize in.
Pedal the extra winter weight away while playing videos games. It's a great idea and this booth combines three things that most Pinkbike users are fond of, booth girls, bikes and video games.
Stay tuned for more adventures from Taiwan, where anything is possible!
