Interbike 2011: Random bits #1

Day Two of the Dirt Demo – so far we started with torrential rain today and it’s stayed grey and (actually) chilly all day. However, we still have shot from yesterday’s sunshine to post.
There are many bits and piece that don’t fall into regular categories, so we’ll be posting random selections of them as we find them. So, sit back and enjoy.

What's the collective name for a bunch of Moonlanders? A 'huge' of Moonlanders? A squidge? A wheelbarrow?

 

Pink headsets! Chris King is serving up coffee and selling off headsets. Win and win!

 

Here's the cleat on the new Syzr pedal from Speedplay. There's float built into the cleat, which pivots, rather than in the clip mechanism, which should mean less wear.

 

And here's the Syzr pedal, complete with hard bumpers and looking very Shimano-esque

 

Litespeeds Cohutta - a 29in trail bike in titanium

 

There aren't actually many titanium bikes here, so it's good to see the few there are.

 

The complete Cohutta

 

How's this for random? We bumped into UK mountain bike legend Dave Hemming! He now lives in Oregon and was on about buying more land there because having 12 miles of trails on his land isn't enough.

 

The Pivot bus - sweet!

Bion-X Pugsley. This has to be one of our favourite bikes of the show. It's a Surly Pugsley snow/sand bike, but with a Bion-X pedalec motor. Big tyres and assisted propulsion - great idea!

 

The chunky E-hub doesn't even look that big...

 

We have a full WTB tyre story to follow, but the new Moto tyre is looking good.
