Interbike 2010: KS, Crank, Salsa, Knolly and more…

New Salsa Fargo - new geometry and bits and piece, and an ivory colour.

Fargo gains a replaceable derailleur hanger

Salsa has gone (back) to IS mounts at the rear. Easier to align apparently

A titanium Salsa La Cruz 'cross bike

Yep, that's my name

New Salsa Spearfish. Aimed at being a 24 hour race kind of bike. 80mm rear travel 29er, with 100mm up front.

Seatstays that bend

Short travel rear shock with a short, stiff rear swing link

Need water? Camelbak made sure we didn't run out in the 40degree desert heat

Norco's new trail bike.

That'll be Dan 'Didn't you used to be English?' Barham

Hi Dan, is it sunny? Just before he parched himself

Noel and the team at Knolly have been busy. They have a brand new model, the Chilcotin, and finally have production models of the Endorphin SL that we showed you in prototype last year.

Nice swoopy (tapered) headtube on the Endorphin SL. Nice headbadge too - It's the only bit (apart from the cable bosses) that isn't made in North America.

Lightweight 5in travel bike that should build into a 25lb bike without too much trouble.

There'll be no missing those pedals. Quite why we thought that shooting two identical looking white bikes was a good idea - we'll blame Chipps' melted brain.

It may look the same as the bike above, but the Chilcotin is 6in trail bike. Same Knolly 4x4 system, ISCG05 and full 1.5 head tube. Head angle is adjustable (by moving hte shock) from 66° to 67°

Knolly reckons a light build would be around 28lb. This is more like a 32lb build.

They do come in other colours. We'll show you more when we get inside the show.

Now in pewter.
