Interbike 2008: Odds and Ends

This is part 2 of my experiences and thoughts about Interbike. Here are few things that caught my attention, some don’t need an explanation:

The Salsa Fargo, a 29er touring bike with 6, count them 6 water bottle holders. Complete bike will set you back $1865 or $625 for a frame.

Can you say OLE!! This bike reminded me of Spain (Running of the bulls), and yes, it is rideable.

WOW… I bet that will set you back a pretty penny!!!

Now, that is a BIG ASS BLINKY!!! I bet it will fit nicely on my Xtracycle!

Here’s another big ass blinky… you can put it around your neck and shout ‘yeeeaah boyyyy’

This is kind of cool… you can tow your own camping tent. No more days in the dog house!

Russ was there with us… in spirit and in Momentum Magazine…

And my favorite part of Interbike… Hanging around with your good friends drinking some beer.

    Yay! more touring bikes! Dang, that Salsa looks wicked bad…an expedition touring bike….sorta like a Riv. Atlantis in Incredible Hulk mode.

    I only count five water bottle holders on the Fargo… Yet even the copy on the Salsa website mentions six.

    I see two on the front fork and three inside the frame triangle. Did you note where the sixth one is?

    The last one is being used by the frame pump.
