INTERBIKE 2017: DAY1

Well this will be the last year in Vegas and day 1 was great, big crowds, great products to see, and it looks like the E-Bike crazy is still big here.
So sit back and check out INTERBIKE 2017 at a glimpse.

ROTEC CYCLES IN THE HOUSE

John Sullivan is one guy who has kept a dream alive in my opinion. ROTEC Cycles came into play in the late 90’s early 2000’s. With the likes of Eric Carter and Geoff Scofield (ex BMX pros and legends) at the helm racing a bike that was unique to the norm.
I’m not sure of the story of how John Sullivan took the ROTEC name and went from there ( a story for another time).
He made changes from the original adding the Mert Lawwill’s famous rear end design that was on Yeti and Schwinn at one time, which brought gold to both companies I might add.
Refined, tweaked and made to conquer the meanest World Cup courses the new ROTEC 29’er and 27.5 will do just that.
Sitting on this new ride one can only feel it has the soul to grab gold.

29'ER ANYONE?? LEAN AND MEAN JOHN SULLIVAN HAS A WORLD CUP BIKE ON HIS HANDS.  ANY TAKERS??

Talking the tech on KALI helmets was one thing we have always wanted to hear and it was great to have a minute or two to hear it.
