Here's a quick circuit of the Flickrverse, checking out everybody's Interbike pics.
Of course, what everybody's looking for at Interbike is the new stuff, and there were a number of new ideas for bikes on display:
The Moots Snoots is a one-off ultramarathon snow bike (left) -- it's got super-wide tires, racks, and even built-in stove fuel storage (look for the bosses on the fork tubes). Here's everything you need to know from the guy who commissioned the Snoots.
Somehow I get the feeling that, well, maybe the whole pedal-forward thing is going too far...
Here's ANT's Shimano Alfine contest bike with it's signature sunburst rack.
Mobiky showed their “Genius” (at right), a folding city bike sort of like the Sinclair A-Bike, but with wheels bigger than a roller skate.
PV Glider is a pedal-less “bike” made out of PVC pipe that's intended to help kids learn to ride (more at PVGlider.com). This is an interesting evolution of what many parents do, taking the pedals off a small frame so kids can scoot around, getting their balance down pat before they have to worry about pedaling.
The 3G Stepper is reminiscent of a NordicTrac on wheels. I have a feeling this is a question nobody's really asked.
There were actually two companies with “Coasting” bikes: Trek and Raleigh; here's Raleigh's take on the Shimano freehub system.
Surly's “Fixxer” is a body to replace your Shimano freehub, converting the wheel to fixed-gear.
One of our favorite bikes, year after year, is Bianchi's Milano, a cool and practical way to get around town.
Finally, I found a number of pictures of cycling royalty: new US champion George Hincapie, former world champion Mario Cipollini, 2006 Tour prologue and final stage winner Thor Hushovd, greatest rider of bicycles ever Eddy Merckx, and Italian master framebuilder Ernesto Colnago.
Finally, there was at least one celebrity frame: Robbie McEwen's Ridley.
