This week is Interbike, the insider trade show of the US bicycle business. This show is mostly attended by LBS owners and managers. They see a lot of new stuff and try to make orders for next year. There will be a lot of plastic, oops I mean carbon fiber, bikes, but steel is still making a comeback in many brands. Also disc road brakes will be seen more, mostly on cross bikes. Speaking of cross, Cross Vegas is Wednesday evening, September 19th.
As a pre-cursor to Interbike is the Outdoor demo. Riding the latest bikes seems a lot more fun than walking around looking at displays. Check out this photo of the tents at Outdoor Demo. You can watch the action via web cast at UStream.
I am not going but if I hear of anything really cool I’ll let you know.
