Interbike Trade Show

Mixed opinions and a small turnout in Reno, Nevada

To their credit, Interbike's management have been working hard at reinventing their show to be more relevant, and while the Reno Expo was a bit of a ghost town, their new Outdoor Demo venue at Northstar was applauded by all who attended. Worldwide, however, trade-only shows are declining in favor of public venues like the Sea Otter Classic. And, there's always Eurobike, which is being groomed by the powers that be to become the "one show" for the cycling industry. Miracles can happen - Interbike has ridden out some difficult storms in the past.
