    I get to to this year!!!

    I live a mile and a half from Bootleg Canyon, where they do the outdoor demo. For years I could either not get hooked up, or if I could get off work, I couldn't get in.
    This year the stars have aligned and I get to go to both the outdoor demo and the indoor show at the convention center.
    I plan on taking a few pics and posting any new cool stuff here. Stay tuned.

    Awesome, targetdrone! You won't be disappointed! And since you are a Vegas local, you're not gonna wilt in the heat like us Norcal softies!

    The trail network is pretty well developed now and it's even better if you are a DH'er. We would appreciate any pics and posts you put up. We'll send out t-shirts for good contributions!

    Just a teaser until tomorrow

    I had to work today, but went up after work and looked around a bit. I was still in work clothes and boots, so I didn't demo anything today. I will be there all day tomorrow. Now, where did I put that sunscreen?
    Here's a few pics I took with the phone:

    Kenda tires

    Pre-production Ibis

    Salsa fat tire bike (I've had motorcycles with thinner tires)


    Giant's new adjustable seat post, the Contact Switch

    The lever for the seatpost is closest to the grip. I will be trying one of these tomorrow. I want to compare it to my Gravity Dropper.

    Here's another brand adjustable post. Available in 27.2, 30.9 and 31.6

    Here's their demo

    Here's a really slick looking QuintanaRoo road bike. Very sleek carbon work.

    Pivot Mach 429 : I plan on trying this one on my favorite trail tomorrow.

    Someone please tell me it's not a train.
