Rocky Mountain Bicycle Festival 2010

News

Over at the FORM Cycles booth they had a very sweet urban bike (Viaje), with a pretty powder coating (sparkling speckled brown), and bamboo fenders and rack. It looked like it would be a great commuter and around town bike? They also had a pretty titanium hardtail bike named the Prevail.

Spot Brand Bikes out of Golden had their new dropout system on display on their Rocker SS Ti, and it was also using a wider belt.

Black Sheep Bikes had their very wild 36er on display, which has truly massive wheels, and gave a surprisingly nice ride. James also had on display some other titanium treats from the stHighlight softail to the Stellar, which had a neat rack and an interesting beer holder cage (attached to the water bottle bosses).

Boo Bicycles which makes bamboo bikes, had a couple of their models on display, and they were very interesting with full bamboo tubes connected with carbon lugs.

Brian has been part of the Mtbr team since 2007, where he has become an integral member of the review and test staff, specializing in technical articles. He likes to push the limits in all the sports he obsesses in, whether it's mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, extreme skiing, or sport climbing. He takes those same strengths and a good dose of insanity to his reviewing and writing on mountain biking products, creating technical, in-depth and hyperbolic articles. Whenever he's not on the bike, he might be found watching MotoGP racing, otherwise look for him out on extremely technical singletrack.

    Actually, imho it really sucked compared to Denver last year. The many free beer tasters where not there ! Even several of the vendors admitted that the organizer screwed up. It was about 1/2 the size, nice though they only charged 1/2 the price.
    If it is in Leadville again next year I will not waste my time as probably even more vendors will not also.

    I tried to downplay the issue, but it was not the same show as was in Denver last year. I hope they move the venue back that way, I had to make a 2+ hour drive just for a half day on Friday (at least I rode Raspberry Gulch in the afternoon). It was a productive trip for me since I got to speak with a few vendors that I will be working with for some reviewing and testing in the near future.
