    Bang up job there Chequamagon. At the very least you should get a life subscription to MTBR.

    Is there any Sycip love to be had? I know Jeremy was going to the expo, but don't know if he was doing a booth this year.

    Thanks again.

    but it also appears that they're still relying on the forks for the suspension....
    so, that isn't gonna prevent brake dive!
    Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not from Interbike, but my Exile 29 has one too:

    Great stuff!

    I took some pics too but I think you covered everything.

    I didn't introduce myself but I saw a certain Mrs. Padre at the Niner booth taking a load off her feet.

    I'll have to take a look to see if I made it into any pictures.

    Holy $%&# that place it HUGE!

    OK, here are a couple I didn't see that you posted. My apologies if someone got these somewhere else.

    My personal favorite would be the Raleigh Rainier 'Cross bike.

    Cheers!

    And a couple more...

    Apologies for the too skinny of tires on that last one. It is a Black Sheep though!

    Anyone have any more information about the Shimano 29er wheels?

    Always been a fan of the Big S's wheelsets; their carbon wheels aren't the lightest, but they're bombproof, aerodynamic and seem reasonably serviceable.

    Did anyone demo the Chumba?



    Found it digging through the meager MTBR tradebooth coverage this year...

    One of a kind

    My next 29er will be this Titus Fireline Exogrid in STEEL and carbon.

    Here it is at the Titus booth built up as a town bike. Mine will be 1X9 with front shock, etc, for XC use. No Brooks or skinny rims.

    I like the ti Fireline, but who can resist it in steel/carbon and 1/3 less expensive.

    According to the catalog I picked up the WH-MT75 consists of a 23.3 mm wide rim (622x19C ETRTO) with single wall drilling design for increased rigidity (?). It has 24 double butted stainless steel spokes, is tube/tubeless tire compatible and weighs 1863g/pair.

    Cheq is it me or does the Sultan have two different top tubes? The complete bike looks like the TT is bent midway and the frameset isnt.

    Those are two different sized Sultans. The smaller ones (not sure which exactly) get the bent top tube for better stand over.

    Sorry, I'm not Cheq but I did talk to someone in the Turner booth about this.

    Cheers!

    That Cane Creek Black Sheep is quite nice. Rumor has it they screwed up the rear spacing. Wasn't narrow enough for the track wheels. Luckily the CC engineers jerry-rigged something that would work...

    How many people would use the SRAM S80 wheelset for offroad or would they use it for a commuter wheel?

    Great pics guys!!

    What's the deal with the WFO Niner? Is this bike an AM or a DH?
    I'm not familliar with the Hammer-Schmidt Cranks and the "black box" disk. I thought I read somewhere that the WFO was an AM bike.

    Thanks for clearing this up for me.

    Looks to me like no brand makes an attempt to build a XC-competitive bike. No superlight carbon-frames as I can see. I am kinda disappointed.

    Damn, I didn't even see that Chumba and I passed by their booth several times and looked (but didn't look for that as I had not even heard of it or that it was going to be there). I love hardtails and would have loved to have check out the frame and that Manitou fork as I have still not ridden on one. The demo bikes were mostly sporting F29s and Rebas.



    Here's my Interbike pics, just a few 29ers and bikes we'll start carrying in our shop soon. I would have gotten more if I had remembered my camera the first two days of the indoor. Not all are 29ers, but most are 700C...
