It was a rewarding three days of pounding the carpet of the Mandalay Bay resort convention center halls of Interbike, the largest bike industry expo in North America. There was certainly a lot to see and we got to as much as we could. The three days flew by.

ORbike contributing writer Jessie Kwak will be presenting an article about fall fashion, largely influenced by the trends she saw at Interbike 2013.

Some of our reports are already up, and there are more to come. We’ll be releasing new company profiles every week to showcase what’s new and exciting in the bike industry that we think will be of interest to our readers.

In short: I could say “FINALLY!” a million times over. Better looking gear, some creative ideas and it seems that companies are really listening to customer feedback and making adjustments to their lines.

If you’re a woman, you’re welcome to join Portland Society for an evening presentation on Interbike from a women’s perspective (mine) on Thursday, October 4 from 6-7:30pm in NW Portland. [more info]
