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.
Felt's big news this year is that their top-end DA frame will be available at four distinct levels, each at a successively lower price point. This is the DA2, as shown on the top tube, which specs Di2 and carbon clincher wheels at $8,999 - pricey, but still significantly lower than the $12,999 DA1.
