Interbike 2018 was held in two separate events. One open for the public called the Outdoor Demo at Northstar and another closed to industry professionals at the Sparks Reno Convention Center. This was my first time ever going to one and I was really blown away by the size of the event. Although I heard from others that have been going for years it's size has greatly diminished due to the bigger bike companies pulling out and hosting their own events. None-the-less I went up there with the intention of meeting companies to be part of the B1KER Bar Podcast. All in all it was a good time and highly productive.
I'm just a guy in Northern California that loves riding bikes. Most of my time is spent on a mountain bike. I also own a single speed for around town and commuting. Last but not least I own a cross bike. I couldn't bring myself to buy a road bike. That was my compromise to be able to ride with the lady. I'm originally from Pennsylvania and have that blunt east coast attitude. Some people love it, some people hate it. Either way I wake up in the morning.
