Interbike '07: Novelties And A Last Look

Here’s a last look at some oddities and odds and ends from the halls of Interbike ’07. Thanks for checking out this years coverage and we hope you enjoyed it!

Is this the world’s least expensive complete 29″er? Is it really a 29″er at all? What exactly would it be good at? Townie? Hmm……….Interesting and kind of odd, this Sun cruiser/townie/29″er was shown in the J&B Importers booth.

Big Wheeled trike!

I saw this big wheeled trike roaming the halls of Interbike and had visions of crushing cars and smashing through large recreational vehicles, so I had to take a picture! (Maybe I’m watching too much Monster Jam on the Speed Channel!) At any rate, I saw this same guy cruising the scene at the criterium races down the Strip at the Mandalay Bay. Wonder if he had any brews in that basket of his…………

Alpine Brawler ski machine

One part alien space craft, one part down hill bicycle, and one part snowboard. It’s Lenz Sports Alpine Brawler!

One One Rohloff bike

One One bike equipped with a Rohloff hub in “sand” and black? Oh yeah! I really liked this rigs look. Found it on display at the Rohloff booth. I’m going to have to try one of those some day…….

This Wound Up fork will soon be available as a 29″er rigid fork for disc brake use only. Check out the will-o-wisp drop outs and the windows milled into the sides of the fork crown. It also had one of the most minimalistic disc brake mounts I have yet seen on a 29″er carbon fork. Cool looking carbon lay up, that’s for sure!

Well, that’s all folks! See around on the flip side for Interbike ’08!

    I am sooooooooooooooooo sad. your new format does not have images on the main page. that’s so not cool. I look at hundreds of blogs a day and if there are no images how in the heck can I gage my interest in the posting?

    please, oooooo please put images back on main blog page.

    thanks

    Who make the big wheeled trike? My son (who has cerebral palsy) rides a Sun, which looks similar.

    Randy,

    If you look at the picture, there is a sign that says “Lone Star Tricycles” and the frame says DX7 on it. Try googling those together.

  5. Randy Says:

    Thanks rockhound. I didn’t see the Lone Star sign in the background.

    That trike is nothing 🙂

    I have been trying to figure out with how many 26×3.7″ wheels and at which velocity a skelter would be able to travel to aquaplane across a lake. Like Icelandic 4×4’s do.
