Interbike 08: Pump Hub

Galen, our Interbike video blogger, interviewed Kevin Manning at the Phil Wood booth about his Pump Hub. It works sort of like a self-inflating tire

The Pump Hub is a bicycle tire pump that fits into a wheel (specifically the wheel hub) and operates through rotation of the wheel. The pump is turned on by pushing a button, riding the bike pumps up the tire. When the tire is fully inflated, the pump shuts off.

Off the beaten path at Interbike - Part 1

Tout Terrain

I found a couple gems amongst the smaller booths at Interbike this year. I took pics of the same big-ticket items as most of the rest of the media at the show, but I tend to look for the cool stuff in the “cheap seats” (e.g. no huge display and coordinated polo shirts).

My first find was the Tout Terrain Boulevard bike with the SingleTrailer. I’m a trailer user myself, and this one was pretty much the coolest one I saw at the show. Very rugged, suspended, and a simple attachement mechanism. The line is from Germany, but available to the US consumer via Peter White Cycles.

Huggacast 64: Mobile Social Interbike

This Huggcast shows the Mobile Social Interbike where we rode the Strip, met up at the USA Crit Finals, and partied. Fossil Fool rapped with his Soul Cycle- equipped Yuba Mundo and sent it out. Our friends at Xtracycle brought the Bike Blender and transported Aussie beer. I rode a new Novara Buzz road bike alongside a small fleet of Dahons. Crumpler and Ibex gave the scwhag and one lucky dawg won a set of Hed Wheels.

Las Vegas Alley Cat

Interbike attracted all types of bike culture. Messengers gathering for a Las Vegas Alley Cat killed some time at the Sands Expo entertaining the crowd. For a short time, these guys were the best show on the strip.
