    Best Interbike Swag

    I didn't pick up anything except for free candy, but I'd be interested in seeing the best Interbike swag people got.

    There wasn't a whole lot this year and it has been going down every year. 10 years ago my back got sore from carrying everything.

    You know it's getting tough when energy bar samples were the size of pencil erasers.

    The Pedro's tool bag and multi tool/tire irons was the best free stuff (demo days). I got some great deals in the last hours of the last day, but it was not free stuff.

    This was the first time I have gone to the show and stayed through all of it. Definitely wild and I certainly got lost a few times.

    I got a cross between deals and Swag.
    Free beer and a bit of food/sports drinks were everywhere at the dirt demo.

    Swag wise water bottles, socks, chainlubes, tire slime, Magic pills, menthol cream, tire levers, stickers, sports drink mixes, t-shirts and a bike pump where my hall.
    Deals wise a scale, Deuter bag and balder, swim goggles and a t shirt where on my list.

    The big things I left with is new friends, ways to get deals and a lot of business connections and last and most substantially a possible job!

    The Show is cool but I have found I Loath Las Vegas.

    I must say the CST pint glass full of beer was pretty nice. The bike chain bottle opener wasn't too shabby either.

    8 pint glasses, 3 shot glasses from Knolly.

    Nothing else I got came with booze in it so it's not worth mentioning...

    I didn't realize that was toilet paper. I looked at it quickly, and thought, "That's the dumbest coloring book I've ever seen!" D'oh!

    I didn't see the light deal, but each time I passed the shoe line, it was insane. I probably would have stood in it if the shoes were free, though

    I saw the Shimano shoe line and I was like, "well I already have shoes for the types of riding that I do, but I figure it's only $100", so I bought them I also got a Nite Rider usb minewt light as well from the show. I went into the show with the intention of buying a Niner One 9 frame, but there weren't any specials on them, but my rep said he would see what he could do. As for free swag, I got some bags, bottles, oh and this really, really small box of matches from crumpler.

    My Bellwether socks wore holes in the toes on a 30-mile ride, the very first time I wore them.

    Not knocking them as they were free, after all. (Thank you, Bellwether).

    Just saying.
