Interbike opens with OutDoor Demo

BikeRadar brings you the highlights all this week

With more than 750 companies representing more than 1,200 brands, Interbike is the largest bike show in North America. Unlike Eurobike, which has a consumer day, Interbike is trade only, meaning entrance is limited to retailers, distributors, manufacturers, media and others working in the industry.

But you don't have to be in the industry, or even travel to Interbike in Las Vegas to see the best (and worst) of what the bike biz has to offer — BikeRadar will be bringing you the highlights of the show all week.

Interbike kicks off with two days of OutDoor Demo, Monday and Tuesday. This is the fun part, where we get to ride all the latest and greatest stuff, instead of just standing around talking about it. Which leads us to Wednesday through Friday — the main indoor show of Interbike. While we already showed you the new goods from scores of companies at Eurobike, there will undoubtedly be plenty of hot new stuff in Vegas.

We will have a full editorial team on the ground all week, including our new technical writer Josh Patterson.

Check back often for the latest from Sin City.
