Euro/Interbike 2015
« on: September 15, 2015, 09:03:26 AM »
So it is the time of year again. Eurobike has already been as so far I havent really seen any good reports part from a post on Fatbmx that there wasnt really any BMX to be found. KHE seem to have been there though with a new line, so I guess they didnt go under after all.

Interbike is happening this week though, so lets post and comment here.

Anything you guys are looking forward to seeing? Personally I would like to see some new and good/wacky ideas. Not so much for subtle changes to existing products or new products resembling others.

I fail to see the point of those though. I thought the purpose of riding plastic bar ends was to avoid getting sharp metal bits sticking out that would "stab" you if you fell on them. The metal piece here is designed to protect the plastic piece and as such will function like a normal metal bar end.

colony's flatland stuff looks good

I'd like to see more flatland friendly stuff. and hoping odyssey goes back to having cool stuff (elementary stem/director forks, ect) instead of turning into run of the mill street stuff.

interested to see the eclat freecoaster purely because it's quite quick after the apparently terrible and much hyped blind

did think the bsd barends where quite interesting but i think jfax has put me off them

speaking of bsd, do they still do jersey barriers for the marmoset? or would the simian ones fit the marmoset?

anything oddy

anything t1

didn't the elementary and directors have a habit of cracking? get over it!

mind you shame about the directors as i do think they looked quite funky

plastic bar ends on their own could break off into your bars

but surely that's just a substitute cost? occaisionally, if ever, having to replace very cheap plastic ones (which comes with grips anyway so it's very likely you have spares) or putting up with sharp edges or having to be filing them down every so often

also i would like to see bars with smaller boxes from interbike

no bar ends is the way to go, you either ride or you die.

I dont think we have much to show. Interbike isnt really that important any more.

Eclat and BSD both have new freecoasters with unique new drag mechanisms so that will be interesting to see...

BSD have a new rim which you cant really see in the photo yet...

Post links to save me time..

I hope someone does a good job of filming and editing the rail comp.

With all the new products/completes going online over the past 2 weeks I doubt anything really ground breaking would have been held back.

G, I'd love to see Directors come back. Still love my V1's as they never hang up on grinds.

The idea of director forks are great, but, its a sin how ugly they are (I own a pair) and maybe there is a way to a happy medium?

Different offset might make them not look bent.
