Interbike 2007 Report 3

Reports are starting to come in from the show floor.

We start off today with a good number of pictures from the Fixed Gear Gallery. They are, of course, focused on the fixed/singlespeed/commuter world. Some of products they highlighted were:
  • Cool weather gear from Gator
  • Teschner and Colnago all carbon track frames
  • Fixed bikes from Kind, Felt, SE, KHS, Kona, Co-motion, Salsa and Rocky Mountain
  • Some very sweet looking wheels from Formula
  • A Human-Powered System design competition sponsored by SRAM's Gary Boulanger filed his first report from the show:

  • A new commuter oriented brand from Quality Bicycle Products called Civia
  • An integrated time trial/triathlon hydration system from FSA/Vision Tech
  • A new wheelset from FSA's offroad brand Gravity
  • New models from Lynskey Performance
  • An extremely versatile bike from Ibis called the Tranny
  • A new all-mountain bike from Trek called the Remedy

Cycling News features:

  • A less expensive, more comfortable new model from Cervelo called the RS. It is said to be very similar to the excellent R3, but with a slightly taller head tube and a slightly relaxed rear end.
  • Revamps to several of Titus' most popular models
  • For those seeking a little bit classier look to their bike (or shop from the Orvis catalog) messenger bags, panniers and baskets from Brooks.
  • More unique and urban messenger bags from Knog.

Lance Breaks His Silence On The Landis Decision

When first asked a couple of weeks ago about the decision in the Floyd Landis case, Lance Armstrong basically implied that he didn't keep up with cycling anymore and that he didn't have time to look at it.

Now, in a new interview released yesterday, Armstrong blasts the decision of the arbitration panel and states that he feels that Landis would have been exonerated by a jury.

It's about time he spoke up. He may be focused on finding a cure for cancer, but he needs to recognize that for most Americans, he is the person that comes to mind when they think about professional cycling.

Bikes I Love: The Flyte SRS-2

"Bikes I Love" will be an ongoing feature of Bike World. I'll be posting overviews of race bikes, and trying to look at a variety of news sources and reviews to give a good overall impression of the bike. I'm calling these overviews, not reviews, as I'm not in the position to get my hands on most bikes at this point.

That said, I'm going to start this feature with a review of the Flyte SRS-2. In this case, I can call it a review as I actually own and ride this bike.

Here's how I have the bike set up:
54 cm Flyte SRS-2
Reynolds Ouzo Comp fork
Flyte stem (90mm)
Airborne OS anatomic handlebar
Tacx bottle cages
Ultegra brakes
105 shifters
Ultegra front derailleur

105 cranks
Generic carbon fiber seatpost
Selle Italia saddle
Look Keo Classic pedals
Alex DA-28 wheelset
Michelin Dynamic tires

I purchased my SRS-2 frame directly from Flyte in the Spring of 2006. I was fortunate to work about 4 miles from their former office. The frame was on sale in their "…
