Are you up for a ride?
September is not an obvious time for the bicycle industry to trot out its latest, greatest offerings. Casual cyclists have usually hung up their bikes in preparation for the turn to colder weather. But Interbike is not for casual cyclists.
As the largest trade show of its kind in the western hemisphere, this year’s edition of Interbike saw some 15,000 bicycle professionals flock to the Reno-Sparks Convention Center in Reno, Nevada. This was a big change, as the show had been hosted in Las Vegas for the previous 16 years, but attendees seemed undeterred. The sundry crowd included shop owners, gear manufacturers, and bike devotees of all stripes. Packed into 650,000 square feet of convention floor, Interbike once again granted attendees the opportunity to see what their fellow cycling nuts are up to in different corners of the industry.
