Interbike 2012: Trending…NEON Colors

For those of you that thought day-glow colors were just for bike commuters or roadies. Interbike yielded a bunch of brands who brought out neon-ish colors in products that didn’t look dorky. Here’s a perfect example, you see those gloves I’m wearing, Giro gave those out at Dirt Demo…a nice bright hot pink. The hat and koozie were from the show as well.

In a nut shell, manufactures for every type of bicycle product at Interbike had some sort of brightly or neon colored product that they offered. Fixed gear bikes seem to spear-heading this trend that is trickling down to other genres of riding. Personally I love it because it’s a nice change from the traditional colors of black, white, red and etc. What are your thoughts on the colors?
