Interbike 2012: Gallery 02

This year, I had hopes of having three galleries from Interbike’s showcase but alas, two will have to do. Within this gallery, you’ll find everything from balleur track bikes to pretty faces and I even added subtitles to the photos to direct you to the corresponding companies. How’s that for luxury. Beat Monday morning at the office over the head with this…

  • Powell

    Merckx x State Bicycle collab with vertical dropouts?

    • http://www.facebook.com/ericbaumann Eric Baumann

      that bike is an abomination

    • http://www.facebook.com/wade.schultz1 Wade Schultz

      With an eccentric bottom bracket and 32 spoke radial wheel……What. Are. They. Doing?

      • Nasai Terriyaki

         you’re simply a piece of fucking shit1

        • http://theradavist.com John Watson

          woah woah woah. Simmer.

          • http://www.facebook.com/wade.schultz1 Wade Schultz

             Lulz for Prolly-hosted trolls. No need to simmer John, I’ve got this.

  • Thebikelab

    Great shots. What’s the deal with the Merckx? I saw one at a local shop about a year ago and was scratching my head

  • Iced_Chai

    The Merckx frame itself is pretty awesome. But the rest of it? what the hell? I think I spot Origin-8 in there. Sorry, but no Thanckx. 

    • http://theradavist.com John Watson

      No. Nothing about that bike is awesome. Nothing, Lebowski.

      • poop sauce

        i said we cut off your JOHNSON.

      man, when that thing was first announced, I thought it was a joke.  now I know it is.
      Eddy, Eddy, Eddy …. first you introduce Lance to Ferrari, and now this …

      • yann

        eddy merckx bikes is not run by eddy himself no mo and hasn’t been for a bit

        • yann

          i mean look at that logo :)

  • Chris

    Images 41, 76…please stop.

    • nickels

       We’re agreed on that hideous Mercx, but I think the Tretta is just fun for fun’s sake, why-the-heck-not design, like the Calfee tallbike.  What I don’t get is why that Fyxation dropout looks so bad- obviously unfinished, and it’s plain as day in macro!

  • http://twitter.com/mlproject

    what’s the deal with that phil hub? narrow lace track hub?

    • http://theradavist.com John Watson

    New Globe Bike looks pretty good.  The Kagero colorway is really nice too.

    Sidi girl <3 <3 <3

    • http://twitter.com/wadestevens Wade Stevens

      wait, what does Sidi make?

      • http://theradavist.com John Watson

        podium girls from the ATOC apparently. 

  • Guest

    Picture 75 … not “Dudes” – Greg Minnaar, Worldchamp!

    • http://theradavist.com John Watson

      Oh I know!

  • Gomillard

    A local shop has had one of those merckx bikes in their shop for a bit over a year now and they’re so damn proud of it. I laugh every time i see it.

    What is going on in photo 41?

  • Matt white

    kinda never wanted all these photographs to end. amazing coverage content and representation 

    • http://theradavist.com John Watson

      Thanks homie. I wish I had shot more now that I look at them all… I completely forgot to shoot new BMX stuff.

  • JIZZ

    KRAMPOUSSSSSS

    • http://theradavist.com John Watson

      I KNOW. I want one so bad.

      • http://twitter.com/wadestevens Wade Stevens

        that frame is rad.  that bend in the seat tube calls to me …

        • Nick Burklow

          the Karmpus makes me want an MTB.  I’ve never wanted and MTB.  EVER!  But I do now.

  • Andy Petersen

    I can’t stop staring at the Mondrian Look 695. White bikes just look so much better.

    • http://twitter.com/wadestevens Wade Stevens

      Yeah, and they got the lines actually lined up!  Even though I think black bikes look better.  Except that 675 with the weird aero quasimodo faring behind the stem.

  • kris
    • Powell

      Glad to see it has sweet disc brakes!

  • http://coffeeandbikes.cc/ Cooper Ray

  • http://coffeeandbikes.cc/ Cooper Ray

    also, high polish “Super” 75′s? dope

  • ian

    HOLY AWFUL 2WD SYSTEMS BATMAN.  On a side note, I love how angular that BMC is and I want a POC helmet so I can live up to my star wars fantasies

    • http://theradavist.com John Watson

      The BMC was crazy. Compared to the Cervelo that had shitty-ass paint (the road model from Gallery 01) – it was a dream.

  • Phoquealaska

    That Merckx… soo sad!

    • http://www.digicycle.net/ Tucker

      totally

  • Guest

    did you use a flash for these photos. mine are no where as bright

    • http://theradavist.com John Watson

      Nope. Just f2.8 ISO 2500

      • Nick Burklow

        what gear did you shoot with?  I got some decent shots this year, but nothing like this.  You are pro as always.

        • http://theradavist.com John Watson

          5Dmkii 50mm f1.2 L and that’s it. Very little post-processing when I have so many photos. Histogram adjustments only.

  • Guest

    that girl at DZR was so cute I wish she wasnt all blurry in the pic

  • http://www.digicycle.net/ Tucker

    the AWD Tretta is amazing.  Looks like a Rube Goldberg machine

  • Guest

    photos are great but interbike this year was a bit lack-lustre.

    • Nick Burklow

      Fact

  • Gio

    im guessing the argon18 was carbon

  • zeeeeeeecore

    LULZ on the caption of the last photo
