Interbike Momentum Urban Legend Fashion Show

Ok, so I had a hard time with the fashion show at Interbike. I guess that I expected it to be more fashion than cycling gear, but the majority of the clothes in the show were "cycling clothes" and I don't really approve of "cycling clothes". Everything in one's closet is appropriate for cycling. Although there were beautiful Fluevogs. Even though I can't wear them anymore due to the fact they are made of cow I still think they are beautiful and comfortable shoes. I think that if you are riding a century or traveling across the US then some of these clothes would be useful. Also if spandex people would switch to these cycling clothes then it would make cycling seem less odd and sporty which may help people to feel less intimidated by bikes. The Po Campo and Queen Bee bags were cute. The Madesn, Batavus BUB and the Handsome Cycles were great to see. As far as the clothes I thought that in general the guys were much better put together than the ladies were. No wonder women don't want to ride bikes.

Ok. Here are the best of my photos of the show.

  1. Nice! Some of those images are pretty funny : )
    It is good to see that mainstream bike manufacturers arebeginning to invest in more elegant design and I look forward to seeing more pretty bicycles on the streets replace the ugly hybrids of yore.

  2. Yeah, the models were pretty silly. They were clearly having a good time. I know I had fun watching them.

    The momentum team did a good job of not having any hideous bikes in the show which was nice.
