    I was browsing mtbr.com interbike 2005 coverage and all i can say and that it really sucks. All there is are pictures of chicks. You would think that mountain bikers have never seen a bloody chick before. The internet has plenty of smut if i need to look at chicks. when i go to mtbr.com i want to see the f^cking pics of new products. These guys are idiots, discuss...

    in my opinion there is no good IB coverage this year. PB is decent but nothing like in years past.

    Well MTBR isn't good for alot, but sometimes comes in handy. Pinkbike has the videos on their site from ripsaw or whatever. Atleast it's something!

    Because no on cares about interbike anymore. All of the new stuff has been seen at races all season long. Anything released at interbike is usually just a joke to attract publicity.

    Pinkbike is at least trying, but who the hell wants to watch videos of industry hacks droning on about their propaganda. It's pretty lame.

    Also - interbike hired "talent" are usually ugly skanks.

    i guess that says more about you, there are 39 pages of bike pics, and 27 of components, not including the demo day. Dont bother with the dayly coverage, i believe thats the filler.

    Also keep in mind MTBR has the "virtual booths" for those companies that want to advertise on the site, get garanteed professional pics and a small write-up on their stuff. You probably wont see the best stuff from those 38 companies until those "booth" pages are prepared, so you'll have to wait to get more stuff.

    So in conclusion,, stop being a dork.

    Getting your unit stuck in that shock spring in front of the seat would NOT be a fun time.

    Agreed...looks like Felt wants the rider to snag their sack on the resi.
    Why not make changes under the farings so you could turn the shock over?
    Still looks cool though.

    Well said my friend! I want to see bikes too, not a bunch of big tidded $luts! I wait all year to find out what is new and exciting in my favorite sport. Save the floozies for the paid web sites and let's see the 2-wheeled bikes, gizmos and gadgets so I can start planning on what I am going to buy next!

    i'm waiting for the "virtual booths" to get up. never have liked the Pinkbike vids. HCOR had badass coverage 2 or 3 years ago. tons of pictures...now i can't find any mention of it on the site. though, i did see the link to Transcend's site, so i'll make my way through those.

    No offense to you or Wood-dog but i beleive you guys are missing the pics entirely.
    Taks mtbr for ex: you gotta click on "all interbike pics" and then scroll down to the different categories.
    Complete bikes, components,etc.........
    Of course the coverage is gonna zoom in on the ho's to draw attention.
    Quit yer bitchin and figure out how to browse before you start the crying game.
    If you really missed the products like you say then you really haven't scratched the surface.

    That's because Brady (Hcor owner) blew his nut on going to Fort Bill a few weeks ago. Rode with him today and he said the same thing - the coverage sucks and he shoulda gone.

    No worries.....the pics are there though bro.If all you see are chics then you're missing the actual bike and gear pics.
    However,the bike gear porn isn't as extensive versus prior years.

    I haven't come across one freakin pic of a bike or bike part... all I am comming across are titties after titties. Oops, my bad, I was on the "girls gone wild" website.
