Interbike 2014 hosted many companies covering the whole spectrum of the sport of cycling. From shoes to eyewear, this show had it all. What we found most excellent was the fat bike frenzy that was happening across the entire ballroom at Mandalay Bay as well as the venue at Bootleg Canyon.  Companies were accommodating fat bikes into their line of products and their displays whenever possible. Whether you are looking for mid-fat or full fat, here are a few examples of how companies are learning how to get fat.

      Michael,

      Between scheduled appointments, and the shear size of Interbike we cant see it all. There were may booths that we planned on visiting but just ran out of time. The Bikes look pretty sweet however, a pretty neat take on a fatty!

      Thanks for your time.

      -Neil
