Flickr'ing Interbike

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:

Moots Snoots conquers snowThe 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.

We weren't the only ones who loved Surly's new “Big Dummy,” the Xtracycle-capable long bike. Here's a detail of the latest Surly and here's another.

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 GeniusMobiky 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.

Felt's Royal FlushFelt's Royal Flush (left) splits the difference between beach bike and cruiser.

BMC brings their carbon fiber frames to cyclocross.

Here are maybe as many Brooks saddles as you'll ever see in one place.

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.

The CannibalFinally, 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.
