Hehe... "Of the bikes that did pass us, all but one was an e-bike."Dirt Rag is officially in the throes of Interbike, the annual expo of the bike industry where companies show off their latest developments and newcomers have a chance to put their product in front of the eyes of purchasers and reviewers. Monday was Dirt Demo, the day to check out some of the latest mountain bikes. The herd was admittedly thin this year, with many consumers waiting in line for a long time waiting for a bike to come back for them to try. So as to not take bikes out of the hands of people who don’t have as much access to them as we do, we took the chairlift up as far as we could, then hiked to the top of the mountain. The trails were dusty, almost pillowy, as we hiked up through the pines, searching for a good spot to catch some riders shredding past us. Not many cyclists were venturing that high up the mountain, but we did catch a good view of the surrounding mountains and Lake Tahoe before heading back down. Of the bikes that did pass us, all but one was an e-bike. One guy in his 60s stopped and chatted for a moment at a fork in the trail.
Surprise!“How’s that feel?” I asked.
“I feel like I’m 28 again,” he said. “It’s incredible.”
2018 Interbike Day 2 Reno Nevada:My name is Tom Crandall and I have been a photographer and cyclist since before many of you were born. That’s right I lived in the 60’s, forgot all about the 70’s, had funny hair styles in the 80’s, started real work in the 90’s and somehow managed to make it passed the Y2K phenomenon.
Today I am the owner of Hang Ten SEO, a full service SEO company. I specialize in SEO and if you are wondering what that is and how I go about ranking websites here is a fantastic article I wrote called Austin SEO Expert. The article explains how to go about ranking keywords and get them on the first page of Google, but enough about SEO.
Includes:Another day brings a ton more Interbike action. Today was a great day. The temps started in the low 50’s, but warmed up to a very comfortable 80 degrees with little to no humidity.
My day started at 5:30am moving from the Pepper Mill hotel to the Atlantis Casino Resort and Spa, which happens to be right next to the Reno Convention Center and Interbike. Unfortunately my room wouldn’t be ready until 12:30, so I had to leave my bags with the hotel concierge.
Hehe... Suspect he meant to SAY that "E-Bikes are here to STAY"?E-Bikes are here to say, but there seems to be a lot of different battery sizes being used, and how frames are being designed to house them. It still seems like the Wild West. I also found that many e-bike price tags are starting to really climb. Look to spend in the ball park of $3k or more for an e-bike that has good components.

Interbike Highlights the Newest Additions in the Cycling World:ThisisReno is your source for daily Reno news and events for Reno, Sparks, the Truckee Meadows and beyond. We were founded in 2009 and are locally owned and operated. Meet the team here.
ThisisReno began with a question: Could a group of volunteer media professionals, collaborate and create an online news media outlet to fill the gaps left by downsized newsrooms?
The answer, we quickly discovered, was yes.
Includes:The largest North American cycling event of the year, Interbike Marketweek, is back and enjoying its new home in Reno.
Interbike’s opening night media preview event was held Monday, Sept. 17, at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. Over 30 companies from all over the world showcased their newest innovations in the cycling world for riders of all interests and skills.
Companies hailed from as far away as Northern Italy to San Diego. They demoed new bicycles, cycling apparel, nutritional supplements, cycling equipment, and even alternative Cannabidiol (CBD) pain management options.
Another creative alternative set of wheels is being offered by Inmotion, a San Diego based company meeting the latest set of electronic wheel needs. Inmotion offers ‘serious transportation tools’ ranging from Scooterboards, mini electric bikes, hover shoes (a hoverboard split into two) to the most popular, an electric unicycle. Tested on the hills of San Francisco, their electric unicycle can reach a speed of 25 miles per hour and guarantees 60 miles in just one charge.

We stopped by Tern to see updates to its already awesome folding and cargo bikes which we’ve already put tons of miles on…

Nearly all of the world’s biggest electric bicycle brands are here showing of their newest e-bike models, parts, accessories and even some surprisingly weirder offerings.
Here’s a breakdown of all the best new offerings in the world of electric bicycles and other light electric vehicles.
Let’s start off with the brand new releases from the major electric bicycle manufacturers. And if you think this is just going to be a list of $4k+ e-bikes that most of us can’t afford, think again. The prices of the bikes here range from $600 – $10,000, so there’s a bit of everything for everyone.
With lots of pretty pictures and YT vids.Wrap up
Honestly I don’t even know how to wrap up such a wide array of electric bicycles. The entire Interbike show was simply an amazing collection of the coolest (and sometimes weirdest) new products that the electric bicycle industry has to offer.
Considering that this was a bicycle show – not just an electric bicycle show – the sheer number of electric bicycles on hand really demonstrates the magnitude with which e-bikes have taken over the industry.
E-bikes are no longer obscure toys relegated to the corner of the bike shop. They are tried, tested and true electric vehicles that are designed to be perfect commuter and recreational bikes for the masses.
If you haven’t at least tried one yet, then you owe yourself the experience.
We’ll have more in-depth coverage on some of these bikes in the coming days and weeks, but for now, this is a pretty good summary of the coolest things we saw at Interbike.
Which was your favorite? Let us know in the comments below.
Hey Nep... Had a thought at the last bike show in Toronto (yeah, yeah, "Oh Oh", I know... but wait a sec)... Given that many riding electrics may not actually recognize other ebikers (known only by online presence...), thought was to have one or more show booth attendees selling electrics to hand out helium balloons on strings watt folks can attach to their belts, etc so they "fly" about ten feet up... above the heads of most show crowds? Booth folks could stamp/print their company/product names etc on the balloons... add a short streamer(s)... though I'd suggest anybuddy doing this all use the same colour balloons... like, one year all green ("Collect the whole set!" multi-years... )
That is nice to hear. I sometimes underestimate the influence of the Sphere. Resistance is futile.I had a few vendors with their engineers alongside them and they told me that they learned everything they know on ES. To me, the whole point of ES is to provide fertile soil for building jaw dropping awesome electric things, and so it felt amazing to have been part of all this.
