Interbike 2006




Chris and I had the opportunity to attend Interbike in Las Vegas this past week...oh man, it was SWEET! Ben Portilla was out there for REI/Honey Stinger and was our walking bike encyclopedia/bike catalog for the week - he knows more about the latest and greatest than anyone I know.
Days 1 and 2 were at the outdoor demo where we test rode about 15-20 bikes...here are a few of them
-Dual Suspension BMC XC bike
-Dual Suspension BMC with 6" front and rear travel
-Surly Pugsley
-Santa Cruz Nomad
-Trek Fuel 8
-Orbea Carbon Ht
-Scott Scale Carbon Hg
-Fisher Race Day
-Remedy 66
-Fisher HiFi.....

Days 3-4.5 were spent walking around a massive exhibit hall in the Venetian. It was like living in Mountain Bike Magazine world...
