Oh yeah, going into Interbike.
The show was okay for me. Kinda bouncing between a few booths. Only had a few appointments each day, but I think they went well. A couple no shows, which is disappointing, but what are you gonna do? Always nice to catch up with my industry brethren a bit.
The cross race Wednesday night was boss. Probably the highlight of the week, fun wise. Thursday night I went to the big industry party. I thought I should show my face, but it’s so far removed from my scene. The music is too loud to talk to anybody and I can only figure they paid all the stripper looking chicks to be there. So weird.
I rode Wed and Thurs mornings, mostly because I couldn’t sleep. Pretty weird being on the streets of Vegas at 6am. I think the road that parallels the strip is Industrial Blvd…pretty much all strip joints. Nice line of cabs out front. Probably time to go home for the night, fellas!
I made my appearances on Friday, but hit the road around 2:00. Ran into a bunch of other bike geeks at In-N-Out in St. George and was home to see the girls before bed. It was a pretty long trip for me, so the girls were over the moon when I came home. So nice.
All-in-all, a pretty good trip. Oh yeah, and I brought home a Litespeed ti cross bike. Pretty excited to get on it. Seems like the perfect material for a cross bike. Also interested to see how disc brakes compare.
