Interbike Outdoor Demo – Day 1

I set my alarm for 3:25 to catch the Six o’clock flight out to Las Vegas to attend this year’s scaled back, version of Interbike with a pretty clear idea that this year’s show would be smaller and that many of our favorite bike brands would not have their wares on display. With that in mind, I’m traveling solo this year and I think that was the way to go, to adjust for shrinkage.

I rolled into Boulder City and hit the outdoor demo on what was going to be a scorcher of a Monday. I found a few new companies with some pretty sweet gear and the stalwart of  rebel bike culture, Surly Bikes, had their brand new demo fleet ready to rip, along with a brand new Krampus that, we’ll show you over at PlusBikes.com. Overall, I think the Outdoor Demo shrunk by more than 50% compared to the last two years, but there were still tons of people riding around on fat and +plus bikes, so let’s not dwell on the negative space and get to some photos!
