    Yes, if you have the time.

    I drove to Indy a few years ago and it was well worth it.

    No, it is not worth the trip. Make other plans and forget about heading to Denver.

    So I guess it's a 50-50 proposition. Flip a coin, heads you go, tails you don't.

    I wonder if the OP feels "lucky"?

    Yes, you should go. Its a great opportunity to meet framebuilders, suppliers and get infected with some cool stuff.

    There is a vibe and level of interaction at the show that makes it worth the trip. You will not get that from looking at pictures online.

    That being said, I'd have a hard time justifying flying to Denver in February only to stand under fluorescent lights in a convention hall for three days. I'd much prefer to be standing on some rented Dynastars gliding down a nearby slope.

    I've got family all over Denver. Perhaps I will look in to a similar option.

    As will I, you bringing a mountain bike?

    It's worth the trip at the very least for the chance to come by and heckle me on rookie row.

    No firm plans yet. I'm hoping to fly, so that will cut into the stuff I can take. We'll see...

    No heckling from me-I'm excited for anyone who shows up and puts stuff on a table. There is enough heckling in our own heads!
