INTERBIKE ( Tuesday )
The Outdoor Demo continued on Tuesday but the agenda for the day was much more focused. The early morning started with the Tour De Lake Mead on a slightly too-big Jamis Icon ( thanks guys for getting the bike set-up so quickly ). Again, the bike impressed me and I'm looking forward to getting one of my own for next season. The rest of the day was spent on a new Genius 650B long travel bike. The bike was a joy to ride on everything but long, gradual uphills where the heavy, downhill worthy tires slowed the bike down a bit. EVERYWHERE else the bike was tip top. A separate report will be written in the coming days about the bike.
|A great bike. But it's not one to buy for racing alone.|
|We were able get in a ride on one of the other nicest bikes there,|
the BMC Impec. The bike rode wonderfully and the Easton carbon
clinchers felt great. But in my opinion the bike didn't ride so superior as to justify its nearly $10k price tag.
|Number 46 creaked a little but probably because it has|
seen so much testbike action.
