At Interbike 2009, one thing definite that I noticed was the abundance of carbon frames. As I walked the convention, speaking to different manufacturers (big or small companies) it seemed that they all had at least one carbon frame – road or mountain. The monocoque frames were just beautiful to look at!
Below are just some of the bikes we saw the last three days:
KHS XCT Carbon, w/tapered headtube
LaPierre ProRace 900
Rocky Mtn/Maxxis Team Edition
BOO Bamboo Bicycles, carbon-bamboo
In addition to the frames, there were ample of carbon components to compliment them. Below are just a few that caught my eye.
