Incase you missed it, last week was Interbike in Las Vegas. While I was there mostly on official business working the booth of Pearl Izumi Custom I did have the opportunity to walk the show room floor early before the masses were let in.
Buzz Words of the Show
It seems that every brand has a 27.5 wheeled mountain bike coming out.
Backpacks, frame bags, panniers and all sorts of lifestyle bags.
Carbon, a ton of tires hitting the market and a lot of booths using them for display
