Interbike '08: All the Rest

Mon, 10/13/2008 - 1:37pm by Andy Shen

The good, the bad, the silly. Schmalz italicized as usual.

01.jpg
Lotsa carbon. Does anyone still care about this stuff? I am totally boinked out with Interbike.
02.jpg
The new Campy shifters have an inward hook on the hoods. And it's not like logic or tech details will change anyone from being campy nuts.
03.jpg
Quarq can make the iPhone work as the display for their power meter, but since Apple won't allow it, that little chip (complete with Sharpie branding) has to be attached.
04.jpg
Quarq's second production run due out soon.
05.jpg
LAS, now in colors! And it still looks like a gland from a space bull!
06.jpg
LG, now in dimples! The helmet resembles a head-on collision with cellulite.
07.jpg
Make your Pete Shweddy's Salty Balls jokes now. These were actually really really good.
08.jpg
Clif hot chocolate! As we have to make everything crappy and healthy...
09.jpg
Zipp's new carbon stem with ti faceplate.
10.jpg
A big fat TT crankset. But all the cool kids are running SRM's. With SRM, you'll be second - but you will know how many watts it took to lose!
11.jpg
Swanky TT parts. TT stuff – moving on...
12.jpg
So many options for my disposable income. Oh wait... There's no way you can keep pink stuff off my bike.
13.jpg
A belt drive/chain drive tandem.
14.jpg
Cancellara's saddle. Will Schmalz's man crush survive the next round of testing? Hopefully Fabian won't become dead to me...
15.jpg
Champion making custom messenger bags now.
16.jpg
Lake's very swanky moldable shoes. Neon green goes with everything.
17.jpg
Campy Hyperon, now in carbon clincher. Campy just recognized the existence of clinchers 2 months ago, and now look at them!
18.jpg
19.jpg
20.jpg
The new 404's brake track, like the 808's, is no longer parallel. Instead they arc in towards the tire.
21.jpg
New SRAM wheels are Flashpoints.
22.jpg
Cane Creek has abandoned the road market, instead focusing on super strong track wheels.
23.jpg
New Lightweights have all carbon spokes. To make unemployed finance guys really weep when they crash!
24.jpg
Lightweight derailer compatible with Shimano and Campy, using different cable attachment points. Coming soon to a Parlee near you.
25.jpg
Optional generator resistance unit for the Kinetic trainer, get it now before civilization collapses. Hopefully this can power my blow dryer in moments of extreme need.
26.jpg
Great big flywheel makes for smoother pedaling. Once again, neon green matches everything.
27.jpg
If you lean too far to one side there's no coming back on this rocking trainer. I tried to steer the bike back under me, only to find I'm riding a trainer. Neon green even matches jeans and head shine.
28.jpg
It's Django with a 'D', dorks!
29.jpg
Speaking of dorks. That's one impressively strong kickstand. I claimed the coveted 'ass seat'.
30.jpg
Getting a shot of the cowbell booth and running off without getting the spiel is an annual rite. Take that, cowbell purveyors!
31.jpg
I sweat it out in a Dutch Oven of my making.
