The outdoor Dirt Demo kicks off Interbike each year and it usually proves to be a "show within a show". Monday is usually much calmer than Tuesday and this year attendance seemed light for the first day of USA's biggest bicycle industry show.
Here are some highlights:
|RIDDEN: The Jamis XCR 29er. |
A cross country rig that tips more
in the favor of an endurance, all mountain bike.
The large wheels roll in a straight line great and descend wonderfully.
The bike was nimble and light enough and everything worked on it.
|9 zero 7 is a new brand based in Alaska. (907 is Alaska's area code )|
This fat-tire bike impressed with its relative nimble-ness.
The bikes are available as frame\wheel kits for now
and complete bikes should be under $1200.
|Here's a close-up of the Icon's underbelly.|
Boxy chainstays and an oversized bottom bracket.
Jamis has a winner here.
|Bright Yellow getting overused these days?|
Here a loud Lazer gets into the frame coincidentally with a loud Giro.
|Just gettin some footbeds custom molded at the Fi'Zik booth.|
8 minutes with light pressure from your feet on warm beds.
|Nothing too extreme resulted from my custom molding|
but they do feel nice in the shoes. Look for a review soon.
|There seemed to be more than the usual nutritional supplement offerings.|
Plenty of variety in size, shape and methodology.
Here is a "Reboot". A mix+water packet that you shake in order
to break the seal and mix the 2 before downing in one shot.
