+1 the "Bike Shows" are all about manufacturers pitching their products to retailers and in the case of the Taipei Show manufacturers.
I had been to several interbike shows back in the early '90s and while the idea sounds fun, running from Univega, to Diamond back, to Fuji, to Bianchi, to GT, to Bell, Giro etc can get really tiring and when you hear basically the same spcheel at each booth it really gets old.
