The 2016 edition of Interbike began, as usual, with the Outdoor Demo show, a gathering of brands out in the desert sand of Boulder City, Las Vegas. Each year, the Outdoor Demo is geared more towards dirt and mountain bikes than it is toward road and tri, but there is always an interesting collection of tri-related material to be found. This year, however, ODD was remarkably thin pickings for the aero crowd. The show begins in earnest tomorrow with the full indoor show. For now, enjoy the gallery.
