Earlier this month, the Interbike trade show took over the rocky singletrack of Boulder City, Nevada, as well as the recirculated air of Mandalay Bay's conference center in Las Vegas. For five days, producers of bicycles and related products proudly displayed their latest and greatest wares. We tested scores on the trail, before digging into detail on the trade show floor. Here are our six favorite accessories from the show, all of which are coming soon to (or are already at) a bike shop near you.
Thule Round-Trip Elite
Flying with your bike to a triathlon, tour, or race can be challenging. Assembling the bike once you've landed is often worse. Thule takes the stress out with this hard case that's made from ABS – the stuff in bike and ski helmets, aluminum and nylon. Inside, your bike clamps to a carrier that looks like a car roof mount. Unpack, and that carrier coverts to a tripod bike stand that holds your ride steady while you piece it back together. Integrated wheels get you from carousel to car. [$600; thule.com]
