My Interbike 2007 show badge arrived yesterday! Itâ€™s been a long waitâ€¦. Last year I was at a business conference at the Venetian the same week as Interbike 2006. I managed a sneak peek at the showroom floor while the crews were setting upâ€¦ then by the good graces of Tim Grahl I was introduced the right man at the blogger meetup, who got me into the show on the last day.
This year I am official working media and will be heading to the â€œcity of spinâ€ with my best mate and long-time riding buddy. The Outdoor Demo is going to be awesome. Can’t wait to feel the trails at Bootleg Canyon. Iâ€™m planning to ride like a maniac to get in as many rides on as many rides as possible.
Trek will demo the new Fuel bikes with the sweet new ABP rear suspension. As a Fuel EX 9 rider myself I canâ€™t wait to suspend in the Fuel lineup. Iâ€™m also going to give some 29ers a shake. Guitar Ted will surely be writing all he can about the 29ers this year.
Also hope to ride some Kona, Titus (the El Guapo would be great), Specialized, Santa Cruz, and Ellsworth. Two days of riding just wonâ€™t be enough. But after the ridefest weâ€™ll get to stretch the legs walking the showroom floor, checking out the latest and greatest gear. It just feels too good to be true.
