Sep 19, 2017
It's Interbike time! As usual, the show begins with an outdoor demonstration of new products. While the outdoor portion of Interbike is geared toward the Mountain and Gravel sections of the industry, there are always some aero or otherwise tri-related goodies tucked away. And as usual, we are on the scene to unearth them for you. This year, Outdoor Demo was notably smaller than in years past, with just a single loop of exhibitors demonstrating their wares. Neverthelss, we found a couple noteworthy items out in the dirt. Enjoy the gallery, and meet us back tomorrow for the first day of indoor coverage.
Shimano's custom Cryptic Cycles rig with the new Ultegra Di2
Shimano had this gorgeous build on display to show off the new Ultegra Di2 group. This frame was handbuilt by Cryptic Cycles, and features a gorgeous stealthy paint scheme which is basically nude carbon with minimal tribal-esque paint (or Sharpie?) on top. I loved it, it was great to look at.
