It’s not everyday you get to hop aboard a pro’s bike to demo parts, but Pioneer had Hollywood Daniel Holloway’s Felt road bike on hand to show what their powermeter could do. The bike’s paint scheme showed off the American colors in grand style, and a couple other custom touches helped personalize the bike further.
Check out more pics of this and other random, weird, useful and downright cool bikes and bike-ish things below…
Pioneer’s big news for Interbike was the introduction of a single-sided power meter option, bringing their entry level down to just $749 for full featured and highly accurate power measurement. Holloway was kind enough to let you hop on his bike to check it out.
Those wheels are from Alto Velo, just in case you missed the subtle logos. They also had some sweet new stuff to show off at IB.
Kuben Cycles brought a few examples to show their skill in brazing, and this fat bike took every opportunity it could to highlight the tube joining procedure.
This fat bike was a little more traditional looking…
…and the SR is their standard track bike offering that’s anything but standard. Check their website for a large gallery of images.
Fitwell bikes debuted in 2014 with the idea of offering a better way to fit people to the correct bike for them. That means more than just a few frame sizes and spacers. It means the right component mix and more. The Fitwell Schratz II (orange) is a $2,175 sloping drop bar bike with big tires and a compact double, making it great for adventure riding. That price gets you a butted chromoly frame, full carbon fork and Ultegra 11-speed group – not bad!
Pure Fix’s model of offering affordable, simple and quality bikes seems to be working out for them, and they keep adding models.
The latest are these cruiser bikes, which come with cream colored tires, cork grips and full length chain guard for just $299.
A step-through model is available, too. And they had killer cold-brew ice coffee at their booth which was much appreciated – thanks guys!
Vintage Electric had some of the best looking e-bikes in the hall. The swept back, heavily formed frame put the battery inside a retro V-motor inspired case inside the front triangle. The look screamed cafe racer, helped out by a monstrous headlamp, leather grips and saddle and hydraulic disc brakes.
Two models are available, running Schwalbe tires, Phil Wood hubs and Brooks saddles. The battery case is sand cast and made in Santa Clara, CA, where the company is based.
ForgottenNotGone.org helps raise money to get veterans active and out there riding. They may not get this sweet recumbent trike, but with everyone’s generosity they’ll get something to ride.
If your tyke’s not old enough to register for the draft, then perhaps these trikes from Joovy would be more appropriate. They come with a push handle for when it’s time to nod off and you get to take over. they also make the larger strollers and balance bikes, among other human-powered child transportation devices.
If your cargo isn’t living, then Weehoo’s new Cargo trailer should do the trick.
The company started out with (and still makes) recumbent bicycle trailers that kids could sit in safely while also helping to pedal. This latest edition won’t stoke your efforts, but it will let you carry up to 80 pounds (36.28kg) of fun along for the ride.
