This past week was Interbike, a week that all people in the bike industry gather in the sands of Las Vegas. You see new product, are wowed, swooned and left wanting to spend more money in the industry. Originally Interbike started when people really did see all new lines, book next years products, had job interviews, etc. These days, you do all those things but to a different level thanks to the internet. I’ve been to Interbike several many, many, times. It is fun, it is a good time but as a journalist and in the media you are working 24/7 and this year with too many things on my plate for my real job I couldn’t swing all of that time away.
For that I am going to live for a few days through people that were there and documented in great photos their travels. First up is Speedgoat Bicycles. A wonderful shop with a wonderful online presence. I believe they started out originally in PA, I remember they were one of the first shops utilizing the web to show off custom bikes and really do custom builds online. Now you can find them in IL and online.
