Who is going, what do you want to see, who will be crashing at Dirt Demo, Cylcocross or some where else. Any thoughts on the new location.
Italian Pavilion; booth 18134! I had my killer lodging and set up at the Sands. Much as I don't like Vegas, I was able to stay out of the casino's 100% (my hotel was smoke free!), walk to the show, walk back, had my favorite gourmet take out delivery spot nearby and so I am not thrilled about the move to Mandalay. I am hoping my new set-up works...staying at a smoke free/casino free Marriott works. Probably gonna rent a car which sucks, but staying at one of the crazy casino's with all the bike people makes me nuts.
Vsalonsitas at the show, come and say hello though!
Wanted to go, and my shop was gonna get me in... New baby and travel finances say otherwise.

I'll be there with the folks from Detours cycling bags - booth #32150. Not sure if there's anything in particular that I'd like to see except for a few friends. I'm also not certain of how much time I'll have to walk the floor. Hopefully a little as it's been a few years since I've been and I do like poking around, perusing, gabbing and whatnot.
We'll be there in booth 2052. And we'll have beer everyday from 4-6pm and contests where people will win either a beer, a set of wheels, or they'll get spanked with a wooden paddle.

Mandalay will be great only because it is going to take a lot of folks that have been showing/attending all these years out of their element in terms of set up and space..
It will be interesting to see how the outdoor (in front of Mandalay) demo goes and the Sierra Nevada thing.
I'll be there all week.....so stop by our booth #9134...sounds as though I will be stopping by the Boyd booth for a good laugh or two!

I would be going if The Vagabond was still there.
I'll be there Wednesday and Thursday. My itinerary is all things gravel, and--hopefully--selling some ad space.
Any pics or questions I could ask for anyone. Saw Greg Lemond in his Time/Lemond booth. My understanding is Greg will take over US distribution for Time bicycles. The new Lemonds will be made in very limited numbers. Also the Lemond line will grow significantly next year. Or at least that was what heard thru the Interbike grapevine. It is good to see things made in America at the show. Just a few examples, Pauls,Philwood,Chris King and the Crumpton bmx bicycle. There was a Rock Lobster out at Dirt Demo.
Ask Time (or Greg) if they intend to make a pedal with with all of the posititive attributes of the 90's Equipe pedals and also a matching shoe with a wide toe box.
Back in the day the shoe/pedal combo was the start of the Time lineup. Greg used Time and also needed shoes with a big toe box. Bring back a 3.0 version that is updated but works like the old stuff!
Forgot to mention the new location's layout...
I'll admit that I'm not the most directionally-enabled person, but I got lost more than once (looking for an exit, etc). And the whole paddock area seemed like a giant afterthought.
