Amy & Robin attended Interbike, the industry show in Las Vegas, Sept 17 – 21
to find and bring home the latest and greatest new products.
The first 2 days were Outdoor Demo Days where we test rode bikes.(see picture)
We then listened to luminaries like John Burke on the state of the Bicycle Industry and IMBA folks on the state of trail building.
We also heard from business consultants that informed us that 22% of online purchasing, using mobile devices, are done while on the toilet !
There were lots of new innovations in bikes, new colors and fashions in clothing.
We also saw old friends like
Patrick Kell who was VMBA now promoted to IMBA ( see last picture below).
Jim Marshal and Dieter Drake (Anthem Sports) who are now running 9 Classic Cycling Events, such as Tour of the Battenkill and Tour of the Dragons.
It’s a BIG show and lot’s of fun to see, and Vegas is……Vegas.
