Interbike 2010 Guide - new stuff from Dirty Vegas

I described Interbike on my facebook status as one of my favorite events in my least favorite city. I love Interbike and reconnecting with old friends; but from the second the plane touches down in Vegas, I can't wait to leave! I just feel like I need to take a shower after being there. It's an interesting dichotomy.

So, that said - Interbike was a pretty good show this year; in spite of noticeably lower attendance and fewer vendors. (I think I actually walked the whole show floor this year - a first in 8 years of attending the show.) The "down" economy only seemed to dampen the turnout; because there was still plenty of innovation present. New wheels (including the one I've been waiting 2 years for; the WH-7850-C50-CL) and Ultegra 6700 from Shimano; Reynolds new carbon clincher rim and lower price points; Sram XX; Zipp's 101 aluminum aero clincher (a new personal favorite); all sorts of new clothing and shoe ideas; and of course - plenty of super light carbon frames.
