Interbike Tuesday

Here's a quick roundup of Interbike news today.

Bootleg Canyon Outdoor Demo

Lactic Acid posted his pics and reviews of the new Giant Anthem MTB and Canondale Rush XC bike.

Leanord Zinn at VeloNews wrote about trying out bikes from Santa Cruz and Maverick, as well as reporting on the results of Park Tools "Fastest Wrench in the West" contest.

Matt Pacocha provides additional coverage for VeloNews, mentioning, among other things Pacific Cycles' strong lineup for 2006. "Many of the bikes have impressive component packages for their prices points. I rode the I-Drive 1.0, GT's cross-country race/ trail bike. Mongoose, also a part of Pacific Cycles, had some impressive bikes playing off of the company's sponsorship of Eric Carter and the Mongoose team. The EXC is a race-ready mountain cross bike with a similar parts spec to that used by EC to win the National Championship in the discipline of four-cross."

Cyclingnews writes about the Giant Anthem. PezCyclingNews tells us where they'll be.

Fru fru

Go Clipless reviews a $300 pogo stick at the Outdoor Demo. The video from Flybar's website is pretty cool, but I have a feeling this would be a toy that's really cool for about two days and then it would land in the garage next to the other unused fitness equipment.
Currie electric bike

Currie Technologies
will introduce 12 new models of electric bikes at Interbike this year. Currie has licensed the GT, Schwinn, and Mongoose names from Pacific Cycles. They offer a variety of styles -- traditional diamond frames, little scooter-looking step-through vehicles, even one that looks like a toy dirt bike.

Most of the bloggers I know who will be at Interbike won't actually be there until tomorrow, so hopefully I'll have more news and pics to report on then.
