Interbike 2012: Team Vehicle

Posted by RL Policar On September - 24 - 2012

When you’re at Interbike, the Venetian parking structure will be filled up with all sorts of team/shop vehicles that are covered with their company/sponsor logos. Here’s one that caught my eye as we were getting ready to drive home. I love how they pay homage to my favorite 80′s show, The A-Team.

The Longbow looks pretty promising and fun! We’re looking forward to seeing this out at the races in Southridge, Fontana.

Interbike 2012: Meeting with Airborne Bicycle’s Jeremy Mudd

Posted by RL Policar On September - 22 - 2012

Art Aguilar and I had the pleasure in meeting with Brand Manager and ultimate cool guy, Jeremy Mudd. We talked shop about everything Airborne. But he made us pinky swear not to make some of the news public. Basically there’s some BIG changes in the line up that we’re super excited about. One of the things we look forward to is testing out the new Goblin. This came about because we mentioned that the our staff test rode 29ers during the Dirt Demo and we all had such great experiences with it. In fact it was Art’s first time on a 29er as well as Khoa and Lady P. With that in mind we’re hoping that we get the new Goblin in the next few weeks.

Jeremy also talked about the highly anticipated Toxin and the new Taka…yes I said new. Another bit of news that we heard that we aren’t allowed to divulge is this…ready? Airborne is coming out with…Doh! I can’t say! I made a promise. I’ve already said way too much. By the way, we wanted to congratulate Jeremy on his awesome weight loss. Did you know he dropped 40lbs!

He started eating right and riding more and magically that worked! I was very inspired by his progress that I made a promise to him that once Interbike is over that I’d get on my weight loss regimen once again. It was great to see Jeremy, kinda bummed that Eric McKenna couldn’t make it out, but I guess someone had to run the Airborne World HQ during the week of Interbike.

Interbike 2012: Santana Custom Tandems

Posted by RL Policar On September - 20 - 2012

I love tandem bikes and this one REALLY got my attention. It’s a 4 seater, I guess you can call it a quad-bike.

Check out the MSRP…wow!

Interbike 2012: KHS SixFifty608

Posted by RL Policar On September - 18 - 2012

This is KHS Bicycle’s new carbon 65b hard tail. Had a chance to ride this, wow! Climbs like a road bike on a smooth hill (that’s a good thing). Accelerates like a 26er and corners with accuracy. My favorite part of the test was using it on a BMX track at Bootleg Canyon. The bigger 650 wheels is just right, it’s quick like the 26er and smooth like a 29er.

The light carbon frame made this bike feel so nice on the trails.
