Annnnnd here we go again! Another week went blazing by and it seems like it never slows down these days! It’s Saturday, so let’s keep this party going with another round of Products: for you to check out! This week we’re going to get a closer look at Joris Coulomb’s signature Noster II colorway from Subrosa, The Front Hub from Fly Bikes, the new Grizzly bars from Kink Bikes, the Front hub guards from The Daily Grind, then we’ll wrap it up with the classic GDH cranks from Profile Racing! Ready? Let’s get into this!
The guys over in Germany at We Make Things dropped the new catalog for the 2015 Salt and Salt Plus parts and accessories! Have a look through to see all their full range that covers everything from entry level replacement parts up in the Salt line through high quality aftermarket parts in the Salt Plus line, plus a handful of tools to keep that bike of yours dialed in! Looks good to me!
Interbike is one of those events that I think a lot of people have a love / hate relationship with. For me personally, I love seeing everyone and getting a look at all the new product, but I hate Las Vegas. I don’t know what it is about the city, but I just dread going there every year. Every year we see a lot of changes from brands that have booths, size of those booths, the products and more. This year was different in the sense of size. There were fewer brands in attendance and honestly the BMX section was smaller than I’ve seen it in the past 7 years I’ve had the opportunity to attend.
Thanks to the internet, a lot of the “surprises” we used to see at Interbike are trimmed down thanks to previews popping up on websites, Issuu, videos, etc. which isn’t a bad thing, but it leaves people like myself wondering what we’ll actually see at the show. Thankfully, a lot of brands hold out on product being seen until the show and we’re still surprised every time we come through which is awesome. I decided to compile 10 of my personal favorite items from the show for you guys to check out if you haven’t seen it yet. Let’s take a peek.
Well, the week in
hell Las Vegas for Interbike wrapped up on Friday and I managed to make my way to MOST of the brands that were in attendance this year! We did manage to miss a few of the suites since they packed up and left before we could even get to them, but that’s alright! Overall, despite there being fewer brands with booths or even attending, we saw A LOT of new product which was great. As expected, we saw less oil slick, more freecoasters and plenty of innovation going into revamping or designing existing products which is always a good thing. Below you can find links to all of the brands we did visit…
Next up, we cruised on outside of the main floor area and took the elevator up 27 floors to the Merritt suite to get a look at what Mike Brennan and Sean Curran have been cooking up out in New Jersey this past year. The brand is going into its second year and it’s cooking up a bunch of rad new product. Let’s take a closer look!
