Campy had their new tri line out for demo. These are their Return-to-Zero shifters, nearly identical in function to SRAM's R2C shifters. The ergonomics and feel are great, pretty much the same as their SRAM counterparts. So if you're a Campy fan, now you can have good shifting as well. Available in 10 or 11 speed, but only the 11s ones are carbon.
The Outdoor Demo portion of Interbike is one of its treats. Vendors bring a lot of product to be tried out, played with, and discovered. And although much of what is out in the sand is big-name brands offering their experience to the masses, there are always a couple little surprises tucked away between booths, just like at the indoor show, which starts two days later. I'll be there covering the showroom floor just like last year. But for now, enjoy this gallery of images from the desert hills.
