Interbike and a few really fast velomobiles

Tradeshows & Events 2 4

It has been a really busy week so far, but I am finally here at Interbike in Las Vegas. I am looking forward to wandering around the show floor today to see what catches my eye. Hopefully, I will get a chance to upload some of my pictures from the show before the Urban Legends fashion show starts today at 5:00. After that, I’ll immediately be off to the Bike Hugger Mobile Social, which starts at 6:00 and ends at the USA Crits VIP tent at Mandalay Bay.

Before I start waliking the show, I want to mention the new speed records set at Battle Mountain last week by streamlined recumbents. Details can be found here. Thanks to Nick Hein for pointing that out to me.

Nick mentioned in his email that he is interested in those types of bikes:

“Not JUST because I like speed, but also because of the practical aspect that more of it gets you there quicker and/or with less effort. An enclosure keeps you warm and weatherproof to boot, extending the length of the cycling year.”

OK, that is enough for now…time to start checking out some of these bikes of all types here in Vegas.

    I've heard it keeps you more than warm! Especially going for a speed record, I would imagine that amount of power would warm up the bubble very quickly! 82mph is amazing though!
