  • THM's ultralight Fibula brakes.
  • THM's snazzy Tibia stem.
  • THM's ultralight Scapula CT fork is just 280g uncut.
  • From this angle, you can see just how much room the 3T Exploro offers for tire clearance, shown here with an aero road rim and tire.

  • A road-oriented Exploro (left) along with a very dirt-friendly build on the right.
  • K-Edge makes a variety of nice computer mounts, including this snazzy one for integrated handlebar setups. Hmmm ...
  • You can find a wide variety of rolling vehicles at Interbike.
  • The new Garmin Fenix 5 will tell you to get up and move, in a variety of languages! I have personally been using the Garmin 735XT for a while and love it. The Fenix 5 is basically a higher-end version of that, with an altimeter, topo maps, and some other features.
  • The new Garmin Fenix 5 watch lineup.
  • The new Vector 3 Powermeter Pedal finally delivers on the promise of a simple, robust, transferrable power meter system without extra bulk or complication. No pods, no torque wrench, just put on and go! The Powertap P1 offers much of the same, but in a much bulkier package.

  • Stages is introducing a dual-leg power meter for a few cranks, and a computer option. But I'm bearish on this kind of system, bullish on Vector, P1, Quarq, and Power2Max.

  • It wouldn't be Interbike without a glowing palm tree, right?
  • The light-up wheel market gets more sophisticated every year, and is always worth a photo. This one could do video, and would reliably stay oriented properly, at least on the display wheel.
  • Tony Martin's world champ Canyon TT bike. Snazzy rig, with a bit of a weird cockpit (flat-ish extensions but with pads tilted UP). Then again, Tony Martin is crazy fast, so he can ride however it works for him.

  • Lots of fun bits and pieces around the Taiwan Pavilion, including these little carbon chain catchers.
  • Triathlon godfather Dan Empfield was on hand to give some talks on Slowtwitch Road Shows, as well as the growing future of the so-called GravelPlus market.
  • The Stac Zero trainer looks AMAZING. The thing is completely silent, using a magnetic field to slow your wheel, without ever touching it. Zero contact, zero noise. Stac has also won an innovtion award for their virtual wind tunnel tech, but I find this to be more interesting.

  • This little device is called the X-Shifter. It turns any mechanical rear derailleur into a wireless electronic one! Still in development, but it's a very cool idea.
  • More random bling from the Taiwan Pavilion.
  • What's more fun than cutaway frame displays? No, I can't think of anything either.
  • The Park Tool booth is ALWAYS bad for my wallet.

  • Combination tire lever and chain opener - Clever! Sadly, you can't reverse the orientation to also make it a chain closer - not clever.
  • Very slick concept for an ultralight shoe. I bet that large foot opening would work very well for quick transitions.
  • Fix It Sticks has been growing slowly but surely with its line of slick, portable tools.
  • Wahoo introduced KICKR Climb this year, a device that can grab your front wheel and lift it to simulate riding up grades.
  • Cobb Cycles is launching their popular ultra-short cranks in a carbon GXP version, compatible with virtually any bike. Available as short as 140mm. Very nice.

  • Our parting shot - a gentleman who repurposed a Cervelo R5 down tube to make his walking stick. Very nice.
