Going to Interbike 2015: Any products of interest?
We're going to Interbike next week for both the Outdoor Demo (Monday & Tuesday) and the Expo (Wednesday & Thursday). Are there any specific products for which you would like to see photos and/or more detail?
We'll be posting daily updates on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/dirtmerchantbikes. To get our daily summary of Internet product news and reviews that will be sent to our customer database sign up at: Hear about Product Tests & Events ? DIRT MERCHANT BIKES
Examples of our Interbike coverage from last year are:
DeVinci Troy Carbon ride review: Interbike 2014: Devinci Troy Carbon bike test (140mm rear travel) ? DIRT MERCHANT BIKES
Onyx Hubs product spotlight: Interbike 2014: New Mountain and Road hubs from Onyx Racing Products ? DIRT MERCHANT BIKES
Crap, I put in for the wrong days off. I didn't care about the show, just wanted to hit the demo
any Chinese carbon factory on the show? I would like to see what they offer.
Also interested in alternative drive train like One Up, WT, or AB, or other similar product.
I'd like to know about Maxxis Minion DHF and DHR2 in 27.5 x 2.5 to be specific. Will they be offered in the new Double Down, 3C, and ST? And when? I have been dying for a DHF 27.5 x 2.5!
Isn't that thing in Vegas?
Better pack some rubber, just in case you get a flat......
I'd be interested in how much traction the CrankBros Double Shot pedals have on the non-cleated side.
The most expensive bike in the world is still cheaper than the cheapest open heart surgery.
Thanks, got your requests and will get details when the expo starts this Wed. I am at Dirt Demo this morning with a appointment to ride the new Turner RFX.
come back with skinwall tire options...in 26. then your kung fu is good.
The things I plan on buying in the next year, and would like to know if newer versions are slated to come out in 2016:
LEATT neck brace, or Atlas Neck Brace
Maxxis Minion SS tire and Tomahawk (29er tire weights!)
Other Buyer Direct DH bikes available in the USA (Saracen???)
High top clipless pedals for "enduro" similar to the Shimano M200
Knee and Elbow Pads with velcro on top and bottom!!!
Carbon Fiber handlebars with 780mm width, 3" rise and cost $50!
195 lbs-6'4" Banshee Prime XL
Ride Mammoth, Tahoe & Vegas
PLEASE GIVE ME NEGATIVE REP!
That won't be easy...

Sorry, wasn't able to get you an answer on this. I saw Crank Bros at the Outdoor Demo but decided I'd see them at the Expo. I thought I saw their sign somewhere in the hall, but was unable to find Crank Bros again despite walking around three times where I thought there were located. They weren't listed in the show guide since I think Highway 2 (their distributor) was exhibiting for them.

The DBX 6.5 adds a carbon fiber frame for lower weight.

Hey, thanks to everyone who came by the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame booth and bought a copy of my book.
If that wasn't you, sorry you missed it.
I didn't go by the booth...damn it, I missed it.
