We were down for about 3 hours this afternoon (maybe it is the Ã…â€™Gary FisherÃ¢â‚¬Å¡ effect - after our talk this morning...), but we are back up now. This is Day 2 of the Canadian bicycle industry trade show. We donÃ¢â‚¬Å¡t have a lot of new products to tell you about - most of this stuff we covered last week at the Los Angeles Interbike show. We can tell you that for 1998 prices will be pretty stable, and that supply will be good - so the stuff you hear about will actually be available. We brought an industry neophyte to the show - Kevin Willey (who produces the Club Mud website for Ontario mountain bikers). Kevin will be providing us with a Ã…â€™Bike Show VirginÃ¢â‚¬Å¡ report, which should make interesting reading... Our Gary Fisher chatroom was an interesting time (check out the session by clicking on the logo at the top of our main page), and Gary admitted that, even though he sponsors Paola Pezzo, he thinks CanadaÃ¢â‚¬Å¡s Alison Sydor is Ã…â€™just the greatest; a super ladyÃ¢â‚¬Å¡. Tomorrow we will be bringing you a report on some of the new stuff that we saw in Toronto, and also let you know what we will be testing this fall, so check back in the late afternoon for an update.
