Interbike Thursday update

Top change agent in bicycling

To celebrate its 125th anniversary, the League of American Bicyclists convened a panel of judges to select the top 25 change agents in American cycling history. At Interbike, the League announced that Lance Armstrong had the most influence on American cycling. Other names on the list include Greg LeMond, Schwinn, Shimano, and Gary Fisher.

Bikes @ Interbike

Cyclingnews covers some of the smaller brands at Interbike with their quick views and plenty of photos.

Velonews has lots of bike pictures too. There's a singlespeed cross bike (!) from Bianchi -- I suspect it's built more for city riding than actual cyclocross. Other urban bikes include several offerings from Raleigh such as the fat tire P.U.B. bike (featuring a built-in bottle opener), and the fixed gear Rush Hour for $600.

Buycycling features the $6500 Scott Ransom among other products.

At the Outdoor Demo the other day, 29 inchers are big (pun sort of intended). J-Vicious reviews several 29ers such as the Salsa Dos Niner and the Ventana El Capitan.

Celebrity watch

Velogal (author of Podium Girls Gone Bad) posted photos of Floyd Landis, Tom Danielson, Phil Liggett, Todd Wells, and Ned Overend at autograph booths.

Graham at GoClipless writes about the women of mountain biking, with a nice group shot of Luna Chix team members Alison Dunlap, Shonny Vanlandingham, Katerina Hanusova, Kathy Pruitt, and Marla Streb.

Fru fru

Bike Mecca shows us billet aluminum yoyos, a nice chainguard that doesn't require the loss of your big ring, and Stormtrooper helmets.

Blue Collar has lots and lots and lots of photos of everything taken with what seems to be a crappy camera phone. This looks like a snowski version of a Trikke.

If you're looking for booth babes, has them here.
