Garbaruk » This small Ukranian firm focuses mostly on 1x drivetrain components, but built this entire beam bike (including custom crank and chainring) from scratch as a way to demonstrate its wares. For now, it's not a production bike, but is definitely eye-catching.

And here's our final look at the showroom floor at Interbike 2016. Enjoy!



FSA/Vision 

FSA recently unveiled its semi-wireless groupset (the derailleurs must both be wired to a shared battery), and Vision has some nice additions to its aero lineup.

  • The new Metron BTA bottle strikes a very TorHans-esque appearance, but also adds a small bento box behind the stem. The prototype here is magnetic in attachment, but we hear that mechanism will change for production.

  • The Metron BB386EVO crank is probably the most aero crank on the market, bar none. I'd love to see it come in shorter lengths (currently the shortest is 175mm).
  • Fun multicolored stem spacers in a little candy bowl at the FSA booth.

Felt TA FRD 

Felt's Olympic track bike was on display, complete with its specialty left-side drivetrain and some very trick one-off components.

Dpardo 

This saddle was so bizarre, I couldn't help but take a few pictures. I am not exactly sold, but it would probably be helpful for people who don't know how to properly sit on a split-nose (or noseless) saddle.
