John Nygren's InterBike Pix
Jon Nygren had TONS of pictures from the InterBike trade show, which he attended as a helper in Carl's Kurt Kinetic training stand booth. He was able to ride a sideways bike there that has steering at both ends using two long one-sided handlebars. He also acted as chauffeur for a while to Erin Mirabella, an Olympic cyclist who turned out to be from Wisconsin. Many of his photos were of chopper style bikes, the big fashion trend this year. They are semi-recumbent but with no seat back, so ergonomically they are the worst of both worlds. He also saw an electric skateboard that was remote controlled by a little object that looked like one of those key fobs that can open your car door! The main recumbent news seemed to be a new that Jon liked a lot.
