Interbike Five: More from the floor

by Chipps 31

In an attempt to get you all the new product news as it happens, Chipps is going to be uploading pictures of all the new things he’s discovered, then heading back to the show to find more and then returning later on and captioning things. You can usually work things out anyway from the photos, but we’ve got all the trade brochure info in the room here too and we’ll be adding details as we get a moment.

Ortleib's super weatherproof bag. Basically an inpenetrable fortress on the back.

But take it off, throw the wet outer side on the wet ground and you can get to the centre split zip, kept clean and dry by nestling on your back all that time.

A quad of Pivot frames.

Who wants to be teh first to say 'Ooh, I wouldn't like to try that in the mud'? Pivot's suspension causes the front mech to pivot, following the wheel path.

  1. the green foes reminds me of this mildy altered gentleman:

  2. Camper envy? Understandable Bongo boy ;o)

  3. Really like the updates from Eurobike and Interbike. Keep them coming

  4. I like the industrial chunky look of that rear mech!

  5. who makes the mech and shifter?

  6. What happened to Interbike 4?

  7. Yes I’d like to see the WTB 2.5 DH tyre please.

  8. @mandog. GIYF. Apparently it’s made by Vivo and called the V5. (Vivo are apparently in no way connected to Hayes.)

  9. The De Rosa’s nice, although whoever did the bar-tape needs a slap

  10. Please, get thee over to the Rocky Mountain stand and get some info and a nice pic of the 2010 Blizzard.
    Thank you.

  11. have salsa created the first edible handbar tape? chipps thinks so!

  12. I “need” all those Foes

  13. Just get the 29er information and we won’t bubble you as illegal immigrants to US Homeland Security!

  14. That Kore frogleg looks marvellous – like the adjuster as well. Very clever.

  15. lov that foes green thing

  16. ooh that de-rosa is lovely…..

  17. Also liking that green Foes, whatever it is it’s supposed to be!

    That Ortlieb rucksack with the zip on the other side is a small stroke of genius.

  18. Roks look like my favourite Thornton’s choc covered toffe chocs. Hmmmmm…!

    Like the ortlieb bag though probably more useful for wet commutes/tours when you don’t want to be digging in for items every now and again out on the trail (or road). Good bit of thinking though.

    Ti Moulton – yes please!

  19. Who wants to be teh first to say ‘Ooh, I wouldn’t like to try that in the mud’? Pivot’s suspension causes the front mech to pivot, following the wheel path.

    it doesnt need extra springs and pivots and boingy bits to do that surely? you just mount the mech on the swingarm rather than on the front triangle?

  20. That Vivo rear mech looks interesting, is that an indexed shifter or an old scholl friction shifter?

    That new Speedplay spud thing looks quite interesting too, I assume that the grub screws set the amount of +/- float on the cleat.

  21. Some questions answered:
    The Moulton is stainless steel

    The mech and shifter is by Vivo – you shift up in the usual way, then to shift down you move your thumb to the end of the lever and push the lever towards to pivot (think ballpoint pen) – it works very well, but the blokie wouldn’t let us video it so you can see…

    The Pivot’s front mech rises up and down, rather then rotating around the BB, which it would do mounting it on chainstay.
