    The place was almost empty. Many of the big companies were not there. My guess this will be the last one.

    Some Highlites I noticed:
    - new Fatbikes from KHS, Norco and Kona.
    - Fox Shox Nude shock on the new Scott line with twinlock.
    - Scott drops 26" wheels on 95% of their lineup.
    - new disc brakes from FSA.
    - new tire offering from Schwalbe MTB and road
    - Opus lineup looks really good for 2014 well spec'ed and great graphics.
    - a company offering a 29+ similar to Surly's Krampus can't remember their name.
    - lots of cool new floor pumps, looks like just about everyone is trying to offer Shiney bits like Lezyne now.
    - new titanium and carbon bars from Thomson.
    - Thomson won the dropper seat post race. It's amazing.

    I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

    Awesome. Thanks.

    Did KHS have any 2014 model 29'er and 650B bikes at the show?

    The Toronto 2013 show seemed ok. Not huge but not empty.
