    Here's a sneak peak of one of the features of the "skinny contest" -





    thats if anyone makes it that far :twisted:


    Demo's will include:
    These are confirmed that they'll be there:

    Trek, Specialized, Diamondback, Fuji, Jamis, Iron Horse, Cannondale, BMC

    These are conjecture but have been there the past several years:

    Santa Cruz, Ellsworth, Titus, Turner, IBIS, whatever other boutique type stuff Lou and Tom W (PIVOT maybe?) might bring and whatever DH type stuff AJ might bring.
