Interbike is one week away.

Looks like the last time in Las Vegas!

Who's going? What will you be there for and looking for?

See you in the Tri Pavilion!

I'll be lurking at the Fit Symposium on Tuesday, then on a panel for TBI Thursday morning.

I'll be there, and mainly looking for a chance to catch my breath after building 150+ display and demo bikes... :)

Brooks,

It's a long story - the Interbike move from LV to Reno

News item here - http://www.bicycleretailer.com/north-america/2017/08/03/interbike-heads-reno-tahoe-2018-show#.Wbl-17KGP3g

A more detailed analysis from Ray Maker here - https://www.dcrainmaker.com/...ns-to-consumers.html

Ray get's at this a bit but the show does not really serve the purpose that it was originally intended to do - for sellers of bike products to meet with potential buyers (retailers & distributors), and for orders to be placed for the following year. That's was the key function of the show, years ago.

Most selling/buying in the bike business now, be it bikes, apparel or other accessories, is almost now DONE by this time of the year - either via in-store Reps or other B2B sales channels.

Most of the major bike brands pulled out years ago - opting to do their own inhouse show-and-tell mini conferences for their dealers either at their own locations or some other place and flying everyone in. This for some/many bike brands, was actually LESS costly than setting up a big booth at Interbike.

I'll be there, and I think I'm on the same panel as ABarnes.

Actually, Steve, I'd like to carve out some time with you. I'm there Wed & Thu, though I'll be in Kona, too.

I'll be in Vegas, racing CrossVegas.
They've done away with consumer day and I don't have a connection to get in. So, I'll just be a tourist for a couple of days.

Best wishes!


Will try and make it out to CrossVegas this year.

The problem is, it makes for a VERY late night if you stay for the final races.
