    Interbike 2013

    who is going ?
    visit me on the Sapim Booth 13048

    Now..same question as last year.
    What specific you want to see ?


    I am trying to make pics and than eventually dl them on my website, and I will put some stuff on my facebook page ... FB page has all stuff on it, its more privat than biz, but on theother hand bikes are my life so I mix fun and work there anyhow. If you want to become friends ( Thor Schaette ) maybe that will put my friends count over that of my daughter ..lol

    Lets hear what you wanna see or know more about. I will try, but keep in mind that I cant wander around for 3 days as I am on my own booth selling Sapim spokes. :-)

    Best Thor

    Hey Thor, there's a ThorUSA FB page!? What's the link to the FB page for us to "Like" it, and also see the pics from the InterBike show when they're posted?

    wow I am back
    sorry guys did not have time to go to the restroom at times, and no pics .... either...
    was a good show for us ( Sapim Spokes )
    The cross event was great and the crit the next day was also wonderful.... Show was huge as usual ( albeit not as big as the Eurobike anymore) ...
    I was barely running around to my suppliers, didnt even make all of them.
    Tern has the new 24 inch series out there, real nice ... more info later and a blinding new headlight, which is way cool. other than that bikes are pretty much the same with small detail to be improved, but basically they follow the idea to leave good ones alone for a 3 to 5 year model....
    Dahon had some exiting new models on their booth ..some agressive priced 24 incher, some wild crazy expensive 14 internal gears Rohloff hub and gates drive ... a Bionix electric Formula.... which actually is pretty alright... the return of a real MU SL with Carbon bits and sexy blue paintjob... the colors are much nicer than the years past too.... and a very cool Proto bike with a very interesting THICK handlebarstem ... but thats a proto only ... a 16 inch eeze similar to the jiffo with 1 speed ... nice... but all those specific parts on it ...ykes ...

    Both Tern and Dahon are well and its going to be a good year :-)

    it's sort of a "Mu" version of the jifo. it's a 305 wheel, single speed, short hop bike. been looking at pics of this for more than two years and it's still a prototype. when it finally does launch it will surely be more than 1000usd retail. who is the target market for this bike?

    maybe it's intended as a sort of "loss leader"? a "look what we can do" bike. perhaps this folding technology is the future for Dahon? will we see an all new line of 20" bikes using the Bipod Mint tech coming from Dahon in 2016? hmmm
