At any give time, on any given day at Interbike, you can run into something super unique, or just really funny. I was taught at year 1 of Interbike to never turn my camera off, as you will end up missing something golden. I have lived by that rule ever since, and it has proven to be very effective. Without further explanation here is a grouping of random images from Interbike 2010.
Interbike definitely doesn't have a lack of media presence. Print and web are two different things, however everyone has to get their portion of the work load finished up and in on time. Here you see a number of workers pushing to get their news in or up, something we are very used to doing by now.
Pedals are one thing that we all lean on at the end of the day. Tioga makes some fancy pedals, such as these chrome babies! Not only will you be firmly planted when shredding trail, but you can also check yourself out in them before hitting the local eatery after your rip!
How many renditions of the famous "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign have you seen? Here a clever company has brought the sign inside to show off their product.
M9 f1 green
M9 f1 yellow
Emily Batty has been making a big name for herself on the circuit this season, getting signed with Trek World Racing was a massive step in the right direction obviously! Mega props to Emily for killing it on course!
Santa Cruz Syndicate team rider and legend Steve Peat's bike was on display at the SRAM booth. This is the bike he raced at the World Champ, and is featuring the new Descendant crank from Truvativ. Pretty sweet!
Every once in a while you run into something that looks like it has been around for a long time, and this back pack struck me as that. Covered in stickers, this pack looks like it's been around the world and back!
Aaron Larocque likes Cotton Candy! Actually, just before this photo he was complaining about how it always makes his face and fingers sticky, which is funny because is that really out of the ordinary...
Dear Puma, Shaq called, he wants his shoes back.
A huck in a truck!
And the truck that made the huck! So sick! It's one of my life long dreams to rip it up in one of these trucks! Anyone else feel my pain?
Look at the dampers though! 301 feet is a mega distance, and when you're in a truck you gotta make sure you're going to survive the impact. Looks like these massive Fox Shox should do the job.
Hydration on the go is a must, and the guys over at the FSA booth had this unique system setup. This isn't news by any means, but it is still super unique. It incorporates a small reservoir and some pinch valves on hoses. BAM, hydration on the go!
I heard through the grape vine that FSA makes a headset for almost everything, and this wall display was showing just some of them. Colors, sizes and styles littered the wall, so if you're in the market for a headset check out FSA.
SDG has their production seats incorporating traction on them on display. Pretty neat design! Brendan Fairclough and Sam Hill had lots of say in this one. The overall design is pretty unique that's for sure!
SDG has also started doing some nice artwork on the bottom side of their seats. Just a small touch, but it keeps things fresh!
For 2011 Yeti bicycles will be producing a limited number of these 25th Anniversary edition 303WCDH bikes. This is the same bike that Aaron Gwin rode during the 2010 World Cup race season, so if you want to look flashy and fast pick one up!
Yeti also had this custom painted Yeti 575 on display. Pretty awesome colors!
At the outdoor demo a Helicopter was doing tours of the show. Would have been awesome to go up in their, although it made filming a little more tedious due to the sound it gave off.
Not the same BC that we are used to in Canada, actually Bootleg Canyon is just about the opposite as you can get to what British Columbia has to offer when it comes to terrain. That being said it's nice to get a change of pace.
The bus line at the end of the day was huge, thanks to Park Tools for the free water hook up while waiting!
Stay tuned for more Interbike coverage!
This is what I will leave you with. This was posted inside a port-a-potty at the Outdoor demo. Judging by the amount of people at the show I am sure that these toilets exceeded their limits, but hey, as long as you don't sit down you are good to go!
