BCW met a lot of interesting people and saw some great bikes, and noted lots of new products. Who knows; maybe next year BCW will make the cross-country trip to have a full presence there... In the meantime here are a few photos and comments about the event.
It was good to talk to the people at Bike Friday, demonstrating their neat set-up for a folding travel bike and matching trailer.
Shinola from Detroit had an elegant display of their handmade steel bikes, which you could try out, and which definitely stood out amongst all the mountain bikes and fat tires that pretty much dominated the event.
There was a lot of attention for the new bike that Salsa displayed (for the first time in public?) - their new evolotion of the fat-bike, with full-suspension: the Bucksaw.
And away from the Expo we had a lot of fun watching the racing, though sadly we didn't get a chance to try out the downhill track.
See you next year?
