    Interbike

    Anyone here going?

    It's still tentative for me at this point, but if I can swing it, I'd love to meet up with some folks.

    I never get the day off for it. It's so hard to. A couple of times I had the passes but was scheduled to work. I think Brian is going. He usually does.

    I can understand, though being self-employed...the days off aren't the issue...the money for the trip is.

    So far I have two buddies wanting to go with me. That'll help split costs. We're also looking at going for one day for the same reason.

    When is it?

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    I went once a couple of years ago and had a blast. Demo day is amazing - when you get to take out any bike you want

    I'm going to be in Vegas that week and want to go, but I need to find some tickets. If anyone has tickets or knows how I can get them, it would be much appreciated.

    I have this problem that it always overlaps with another event that I do which this year starts the 25th. Sadly I won't be going.

    I'd seriously doubt it.

    I take hundreds of photos every year and only once was I told to stop. Security barely looks for passes when you go in after the 1st day at the Sands.

    Yeah, that actually pissed me off in 2005 as a reporter for a legit bicycle website.

    I waited for over an hour to get through the media line to have permission to take pictures...then everyone and his brother was taking pictures.

    so you know better now.

    I'm glad to see they are doing a Brent Thomson memorial ride at the dirt demos. I hope I don't faceplant on this one. I ended up in the ER after the last ride we did to memorialize him.

    Yeah, but apparently Interbike doesn't.

    I don't understand why they even bother with a press area if they're not going to enforce it. In this age of every electronic device being built with a camera in it, it would be next to impossible, but I can imagine some professional reporters depending upon exclusives and being promised security will be enforcing it being pretty pissed off.

    No Interbike for me... I will have to console myself with the hand built bike show in Portland at the end of October.

    ...and the year before.

    You have the power to make a Bikeforums Interbike group ride happen. I hope you don't miss out on the chance again.

    I just emailed my nephew for the passes. I hope he still has them. I figured I couldn't get the day off because I took two weeks vacation earlier this week and it kind of threw people of since I got my new position.....So if he verifies that he will send them then I'll have to beg big time for it off.
