Red Kite Prayer | Interbike 2015, Part XI (Oct. 1, 2015)
(October 1, 2015) -  Interbike isn’t all gear, gear, gear, though it can seem that way. I went into this year’s show with the intention of taking lots of pictures of people and ended up in enough of a rush that I took but a very few portraits. The shot above is one that I knew I couldn’t miss, though. Left to right are Paraic McGlynn of Purely Custom, Trek and Cyclologic; Todd Carver of Retül and Steve Carre of Bike Effect and Cyclologic. It was a triumvirate of fitting greatness. Purely Custom was showing off a range of their fit tools and if I’d had half a day to spare, I’d have spent it right there. Read the full article.

Las Vegas Review-Journal | Stars of “Breaking Away” reunite at Interbike in Las Vegas (Sep. 18, 2015)
(September 18, 2015) - The bicycle industry has suffered bad luck when it comes to pop culture icons. Consider former bicycle race superstar Lance Armstrong, who drove bicycle sales thanks to his Tour de France wins before admitting to cheating with illegal drugs and leaving the public eye in disgrace. But one piece of bicycle pop culture endures and it played out in Las Vegas this week to the delight of 700 bike industry leaders who gathered for an awards dinner at the Interbike international bicycle trade show at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on the Strip. Three actors from the 1979 award-winning, coming-of-age bicycle movie, "Breaking Away," staged a reunion at Interbike and the film's 36-year-old clever lines were heard being uttered throughout the convention center ballroom.

Bicycling | Shimano Unveils 18 New Shoe Models at Interbike 2015 (Sep. 16, 2015)
(September 16, 2015) -  My first clipless cycling shoes were entry-level Shimano mountain bike shoes. They cost me no more than $100, yet stood up to an incredible amount of abuse for four years. So I guess I have a soft spot in my heart for Shimano shoes, even if they tend to be more conservative in terms of style—I think highly of their function and quality. That’s why I was more than happy to see the company go big in this department for 2016, releasing 18 new models for road, mountain, and urban riding. Here are a few highlights from the Outdoor Demo at Interbike. Read the full article.

Las Vegas Review-Journal | New Vegas business on a roll at Interbike show (Sep. 10, 2014)
(Sep. 10, 2014) In a far corner of a vast floor of more than 1,000 Interbike exhibitors, squeezed between fire exits, trade show rookies Lance and Lynn Sisson set up shop early Wednesday morning. The first-time exhibitors from Las Vegas, who own 11nine Fat Bikes, were nervous. It was 8 a.m. at the Mandalay Bay
Convention Center on the Strip’s south end, and the married couple had just rolled in six mountain bikes with megabig fat tires they assembled in their home garage in the northwest valley. “It’s been extremely nerve-racking,” Lynn Sisson, 46, said of the days leading to the massive bicycle trade show held each September in Las Vegas. “We haven’t slept in days.” Her 48-year-old husband explained why: “Did we build something that everyone will like, or did we build something only I like?” Any first-time exhibitor at a big Las Vegas trade show knows that feeling.

Las Vegas Review-Journal | As the wheel turns: lookey-loos welcome at Interbike (Sep. 12, 2014)
(Sep. 12, 2014) For years, Interbike, the U.S. bicycle industry’s premier trade show, held annually in Las Vegas, has been all about bicycle shop owners visiting bike manufacturers and ordering new inventory from exhibitors. But on Friday, this once hard-core B2B trade show changed forever.

Bicitech | Interbike 2014, the show's future (Sep. 15, 2014)
(Sep. 15, 2014) In the States everything is entertainment, even an exhibition. It was concluded in these days of Interbike, the bicycle showroom dedicated to embedded, in rapid succession, Eurobike between late August and late September Expobike. The appointment of Las Vegas is the key moment to take stock of the market beyond the ocean, in what remains, for size and spending power, the second largest market after the Asian giant. But if in old Europe a fair, as rich and full, you can not deviate too much from what is a plot statement (exhibit products and events contour); in Nevada City event becomes the show. Proof of this are the 2014 Interbike Award , which is awarded in an evening awards show conducted by the famous (in America) comedian Alonzo Bodden and whose tickets have been sold in a pre-flash (now sold out).
