    Interbike Expo pictures for 29ers

    Here are a lot of pictures without a lot of info. If you have questions, ask, but I really dont want to spend the time to type out a description of each, when the name on the downtube will probably suffice.

    I do hereby nominate Chequamegon as a better Interbike covererer than our gracious hosts. At least he's much faster than them.

    Thanks for the hard work Tim, and good luck on the trail, eh?

    Thanks for the pics.

    It was a small custom carbon-fiber builder from Austin, TX. Cannot remember the name. It looks to be built in the Crumpton method, a tube-to-tube construction with a joint wrap, but using a massive titanium plate dropout and a set of stays from a 26" wheel bike that were made by Easton.

    The guy also said they had custom-shaped tubes made, and they were not just off-the-shelf tubes from that place in SLC like Crumpton and Calfee. I would place the appearance and quality in their league though. Much finer finish and construction than a Ruegamer though, Rue's joints look quite random at times.

    Oh yeah, that really doesnt fit the 29er thing, but I took a picture because it looked like the anodizer puked all over it.

    There were a couple bikes with a black Fox 29" fork, makes me wonder if they'll release one soon either in 80 or 100mm OEM only.

    Best 29er of 09 (out of those that I rode, remember I didnt get them all) would be the Salsa Fargo.

    Best MTB intended 29er would be the Salsa Big Mama.

    Trek, Gary Fisher and Cannondale refuse to have a presence at Interbike Expo. So there are no pics.

    They do have a presence at the Dirt Demo, but the line is so long to ride one, I dont bother because I am really not a fan anyway.

    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.

    The front end looks like the Telelever suspension setup on BMW motorcycles. It's built that way to prevent brake dive.



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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
    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.

    Cheers!

    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...
