Interbike Thursday; The Final Day

Thursday was to be our last day at the show. With only a couple of meetings left, we had to make it to Lyd's show at SIGMA by 4pm, then back to the room to pack it up! My phone rang with Austin's number lighting up the display. We ran downstairs to meet up with he and brother Colby (like the cheese, you know?) to get them their show badges.

We stopped by the NINER booth to see if Darter and James Cross were there. No Darter, but King James was hanging out talking bikes!

The new NINER booth was awesome. The carbon 29er forks they had out looked like popsicles. I ate one.

While there, we ran into Jake Scott and Stuart Hunter from roll: in Columbus, looking over the new stuff.

Pat Hus and Jeff Titone were hanging out at their Titus booth with extraordinarily sweet amounts of bike-related bling. You could not imagine the number of magazines there to see the new bikes. Thanks to Jeff and Pat for taking the time to meet with Lyd and I Thursday! If you are new to the team, we had a GREAT time working with them from 2005 to 2007.

I'm pretty sure every single bike in the hall at SRAM XX parts on them. Remember when SHIMANO ruled all? Not this year.

Our day ended up with a visit to SOCK GUY for some arm warmers just prior to Lyd's SIGMA show. She picked up two pair (thanks SOCK GUY!), and we headed to SIGMA.

Lyd fired up the Martin guitar right at 4pm as the Blue Moon beer began to flow into frosty SIGMA glasses.

Even pickle-smoochers like Pro 4X/Slalom Dirt Bag James Schwanke came over to hang out and listen to Lyd sing. James was awesome, he hollered and clapped at every song to keep the crowd fired up. Then he drank two beers and got naked. It must have been VERY cold in the hall, because...never mind.

remember our home-slice E.vil J.uicy? he is now a sales rep at Orange County based FELT cycles. We love E.J. We won't send him our sisters, but we love him.

It's the final day, because we left Thursday. I have no idea what went down Friday. I wasn't there. We left. This is it. Go to your homes now.
