Until next year.....goodbye Vegas!

p.s. Next year we are all bringing our BMX bikes out to Interbike cause there are ridiculous spots to ride on the side streets that run parallel to the Vegas Strip. 364 days and counting till Interbike 2007.
We The People has a rad new textured paint finish that they are using on their 2007 frames. Check it out for sure! We'll be getting some in at Pedal Power when they become available.
Chrome has the sickest bags out there! As usual they came to Interbike with tons of merchandise to sell and they are basically sold out. I added one of their laptop bags and a laptop sleeve to my collection.
Hincapie has an awesome custom jersey program and we'll be going through them for the CCNS/Pedal Power Team jersey's in the near future. I checked out the product and the material is super nice and their cycling caps are second to none. Breathable 4 panel designs that are comfortable and stylish.
So thats it from Interbike 2006. I know my updates have been pretty lame, but there is too much going on here and I am so overwhlemed with information/product. We fly out on the "red eye" back to good old CT at 11:30 tonight for a 7:30 am arrival at Bradley. Vegas is one hell of a good time, but 4 days is enough for me!!! I'm shot!
BMX has been taken to a whole new level. I couldn't believe a clip I saw of street shredder Brad Simms icepick up a 10 stair rail. That is not right!!! Rumor has is that Van Homan's part in the new "FITlife" video is possibly the best video part ever. I'll have to see if I can pick up a copy of the video at the show today. OK, I've typed enough for now. I am off to hord free swag and take in as much as I can. I can't believe its already the last day of Interbike 2006. :( so sad!
Volume's new low profile brakes. They are lighter, stiffer, and less expenisve than the $75 Fly brakes. I'll be running a pair of my bike as soon as they are available.
Giants new Alliance technology is pretty rad. They are making bikes that are similar to the spine style that Lemond and Specialized are doing....pairing carbon and aluminum. The difference is Giant's road frames are more affordable without comprimising strength, stiffness, and quality. The new STP colors for 2007 are also super hot!
Raleigh has a rigid 29er mountain bike that comes in under a grand....and its single speed. Such a rad trail bike to bomb around the woods of Hurd Park, Wadsworth Falls, or Meshomasic on.
So thats the latest and greatest from day 2 at Interbike.
Me and some Blue Mang group wax figures
Ah, the sights in Vegas!
More to come when we arrive in Vegas....
