This is it, the final day of Interbike. My shutter finger is sated for the time being, my feet are sore and It’s been a busy week. I think I’ve hit all the booths I wanted to, along with some requests… Vegas is rad and all, but I’m ready to roll on home to Texas. Thanks to everyone who hung out and chatted this week. It was a pleasure to meet you.
Enjoy the largest gallery to ever grace this site and again, feel free to ask any questions in the comments!
Here we go again. This morning’s hangover is acute, but I’m back at it. Interbike is almost impossible to cover as one person, so if you want to see something, holler at me, @JohnProlly or leave a note in the comments!
Cross Vegas is the official kick-off for American cyclocross season, in my opinion anyway. It’s raucous, rowdy and best of all, FUN! The highlight of the evening for me is the Wheelers and Dealers event where industry reps and shop peeps battle head to head for a place on the podium next to Craig Etheridge – who wins every year.
The crowd loves it. Everyone’s doing handups, toss ups, spraying beer, hecking and this year, like it does every year, it carried on well into the UCI race. This year’s event drew big names like Lars van der Haar and Sven Nys – maybe you’ve heard of them? At any rate, these pros had an introduction to the party time that is Cross Vegas and yes, things got out of hand.
Thanks to everyone who hung out and made the evening an enjoyable one!
Interbike. The necessary evil of the industry and the culmination of the year’s energy for me. 48 hours ago and we were in the Sequoias, now, we’re in the towering landscapes of Las Vegas, navigating the halls of the convention, seeing new and interesting products and longtime friends.
In an attempt to make my Interbike coverage as easy to digest as possible, I’ll be doing things a little different. Each day, I’ll upload around 80 photos, with the company’s name in the captions. If you have any questions, ask below and I’ll answer.
Keep in mind, these are products I like and do not necessarily represent everything to see at the show. If you’ve seen something elsewhere that’s worth sharing, holler at me on Twitter, Instagram (@JohnProlly) or in the comments!
Let’s do this! See ya there!

This looks like a RAD time in Colorado:
“Colorado is home to some of the finest handmade bicycles in the country, if not the world. This site is a showcase for not only these well crafted machines, but also the craftsmen that build them.
You will also find the latest news of our annual show, the Colorado Framebuilders’ BBQ, where you can come see these beautiful bikes and enjoy some delicious food and beer while chatting to the builders. This year’s BBQ will be held on September 27th, 2014.”
I’m thinking road trip? See more at the Colorado Framebuilders’ BBQ.
