I am pretty sure that Interbike is held in the biggest room in the world. It is simply massive, atleast 7 square miles of bikes, probably bigger actually! So this year, instead of wasting my time in there, I decided to hire a bum to take my pics while I tan by the pool instead. This is what "Hungry Pete" came out with. If you don't like it then take it up with him....The guys at Interbike recognized me and let me have a killer parking spot right in the expo!
The PinkTaco company car
RockShox's new Vivid
shock was on display. One for me to touch and one under glass.
and the Gory
After a decade of bringing the pain there is a new version of Sid
The New Sid
had a wicked little DJ bike built up with their new fork.
Atomlab complete bike
One pretty number from the Electra
had a massive range of bikes on display and everything was super shiny and cool.
The Bellistic has some new graphics but the new Bell Drop
was looking very protective.
had a super tech cut away of their Double Barrel damper on display. There are a lot of small parts working together in there to give it that amazing feeling. My hand model Malcolm
gave me the low down.
Can you see the twin tubes?
High/low compression and rebound
They also had a dyno in the booth that showed you what the damper was doing while you were giving it a push and a pull.
Crank Brothers had the only booth that was giving away green apples
to eat. They were also showing off a few pedals...
I've seen it before, but the Calfee Spiderweb bike
still had me staring for a good 20 minutes.
Ventana had the solid looking El Cuervo
standing guard for them.
Derek Lahr is most likely smarter than you.
He manufactured this carbon and cnc'd alum. bike that has a continuously variable transmission built into it. If you were to use a non-indexed shifter you get a bike that has no set gear, you can pick whatever drive ratio you want. There was a working tranny that I got to fiddle with and it was amazing. Did I mention it was electronic?
After I cleared three security checks and a retina scan, I was able to snap some pics of Peat and Rennie's World Championships race bikes
with my super-secret shoe camera. Don't ask why theres a camera on my shoe.....Just be grateful there was.
has got some new long travel forks for you if you are looking for a new long travel Marzocchi fork. Under 7lbs, 8" of travel and phat 38mm stanction tubes.
took two forks and cut them right down the middle with a lightsaber!
DT has a new heavy duty wheelset that hits a lower price point tha n their super high-end 2350's. The cost of the E2220
's is lower but these wheels can still take what you got. And they be Red!
What do you do when you are such a noob
that you keep losing your brakes? Put your name on them silly!
Tyler with his custom Ultimates...
"Look ma, I'm a noob"
Mountain Cycle Battery
minus the paint.
Want to have fun while you brake? Then check out Funn brakes!
I must be tired, that was weak...Not sure when these will be out but I'm sure they will work great and not be too expensive.
These ladies may have had some after market modifications. Nice smiles.
Both are thinking "why is he breathing so heavy?"
