I'm far too lazy and jaded to separate these shots into categories. So here they are in sequential order. Enjoy! Schmalz in italics.
A new mid-level gruppo was the most exciting thing about the Interbike show, also bringing down the house: oatmeal, Foreigner and sweater vests.
This is the 2nd picture I took and already I'm zoning out. I actually thought this was an electronic derailer.
Here's the actual Ultegra Di2 rear derailer, shot while I was pedaling the bike. If you could see it clearly you'd see that it's a bit bulky.
"Wow, these demo pedalers are startlingly ugly." "Speak for yourself, Mr. Mustache."
Really excited to ride this gruppo, note the precision of the wet spot on my pants.
Wiring is all new, thinner and easier to install.
These are the new "Tron Series" Pro bars.
Cav's Venge. Check out our video surveillance in the background there. Creepy.
This bike swore at us and then tweeted about its really hot girlfriend.
I enjoy the fact that these "green jersey" stickers have all the forethought of a decal set for a 1976 Pinto model car kit.
Schmalz got all excited to see Fab's bike, only to realize this belonged to a tri guy.
Big deal—wrong bike, wrong sport, wrong year, wrong metrosexual.
I want a 29er. There'll be a 29er in the shots every now and then.
American Classic have a new super wide rim for tubeless.
And it's coated with candy!
In aluminum or...
...magnesium. Even lighter! If there's one thing from the show I wanted to steal, it was this.
Andy's life is sad.
See, wide ass rims.
Castelli's one piece speed suit, Heinrich Haussler likes it.
He especially like the advanced cleavage opportunities the new kit offers.
You think I'm showing you a chamois, but I'm really showing you on the shorts where Creed touched me.
How many road bikes can you look at? I'm scanning the background for funny looking people.
Once again, Wilier stole my fork design.
Daniel Benson flips me off.
It's this kind of sassy attitude that attracts all types to Mr. Benson.
Dan and Laura Weislo still in the staring contest, Jane Aubrey and Benson out.
Scott LeMond with a Greg shirt.
A very large man tries to break 1000 watts. He succeeded.
This guy almost destroyed everything in the booth with his pedal stroke. Seriously. Take a look at the guys just in front of him at the next booth turning their heads in shock.
Bedazzled headset! Didn't someone photoshop Sarah Palin's head on this thing?
We give Creed grief for his head size, but it's entirely warranted. Here he is not fitting into a "street" helmet.
His head is large in an unusual way, it's very long, like a ferret or weasel's cranium.
