The weird and the wonderful - Interbike 2013

The things that caught our eye and the things that made us ask 'why?'

While there were certainly a few clear trends at Interbike this year — yes, fat bikes — we also came across a number of exhibits that don't fit so neatly into any one category. Whether plastic animals that hold your bike vertically, interpretive taxidermy displays or time-traveling machines disguised as DeLoreans, there were a few things we couldn't quite classify — but had to show you here in a photo gallery. Enjoy.

Josh has been riding and racing mountain bikes since 1998. Being stubborn, endurance racing was a natural fit. Josh bankrolled his two-wheeled addiction by wrenching at various bike shops across the US for 10 years and even tried his hand at frame building. These days Josh spends most of his time riding the trails around his home in Fort Collins, Colorado.
