Direct from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, we have all of the freshest fat and plus bike hotness for y’all! I was going to try to separate the plus from the fat, but there’s a lot of cross-over. I saw fat-bikes that were designed to run plus and even one plus-bike that can run, almost fat. We even saw a production fat-bike that can handle a 5.05″ tire front and rear! So we’ve co-mingled our plus and fat-bike coverage for the ultimate bicycle blend. I recommend you get a beverage and enjoy the scroll!
Lake has a new winter boot that looks pretty $$$weet.
The Apache Fatty Slick from Vee Tire Co. along with their complete line of Fat-Bike Tires
Maxxis pared down their fat and plus bike tires. F&R Specific Tread Patterns and Dayglo Lettering (get a can of black cover-up for those logos)
Schwalbe Plus and Fat Sneakers. I think they should name the tire on the far left – The Tickler. Alex from RSD was singing the praises of the B+ Nobby Nicks for singletrack.
Terrene Tires with our Amigo Tim Krueger in the background. I got to ride both of their new tires and both of them are going to be winners! We’ll be putting these tires through the ringer and have a full review coming soon.
Kenda’s Plus Bike treads for ’17 – On the fat side they’re sticking with their Juggernaut.
I ran into Jeff Jones and rode his gorgeous new 29+ on the carpeting at the show. Jeff’s new rig bucks the trend on shortening the wheelbase on plus bikes. Look for an interview with Jeff coming up on Fat Camp for all of the details.
RSD has a brand new 27.5+ Dual Suspension Bike Called the Wildcat.
The mayor had his cainstays let out slightly and can now handle Vee Tire’s Snowshoe 2XL 5.05″ Tire front and rear. Our amigo, Puck should freak’n love this color.
The 2017 Sergeant is a B+ hardtail that can run tires as wide as 3.8″. So you can run 27.5 or 26 x 3.8’s
QBP’s booth had the new Krampus and Hipster Royalty. I noticed that there wasn’t anything from 45NRTH in the Q booth. That gave me pause to wonder.
I spied this 100mm double wall carbon rim from Whiskey Parts in the Q Booth

Look for roof top tents to go mainstream with Yakima jumping into the fray.
HED had a 24″ Peacock Groove fatty in their booth.
How about a brand new 60mm wide single wall carbon rim with Fat-B-Nimbles or Bonty Rougarou’s for Singletrack?
Or how about some carbon 27.5 rims for your plus bike shredder?
Or the full line of 26 and 27.5 fat bike wheels in both AL and Carbon. HED makes the best hoops for your fat-bike.
The Orbea Loki – Maybe the prettiest Plus Bike at the show…maybe
B+ Dually from Scott
Blackburn can outfit your bike from everything from spearfishing to gnome hunting.
The Blackburn wall of Racks
Rawland showed this drop bar + touring rig
This shot is for Sven. It’s the R+ from Why Cycles #roadplus
That’s all from Interbike this time around. I’ll leave you with Gnomes, Turtles, Unicorns and Tacos
