2011 Rocky Mountain Solo CXR Cyclocross

Rocky Mountain, as you may know, is predominately a mountain bike company. In acknowledging the need to train, however, they will release the 2011 Rocky Mountain Solo CXR cyclocross.

Last year, Rocky Mountain had 3 cross bikes in their line up. In 2011, they will only feature 2. The Rocky Mountain 2011 Solo CXR received input from team riders Geoff Kabush and Alison Sydor. In the end, the Solo CXR is a race cross bike scaled down.

Oval shape tubing is featured at the top tube and down tube, so when lugging the 2011 Solo CXR up hills, it is easier to grab and more comforting to shoulder.

Carbon fiber is used on the seat stays to absorb bumps on the course. Lastly, carbon was also used on the front fork and steer tube.

The main attraction at Colnago’s booth at this year’s InterBike was the 2011 Limited Edition C59 Italia.

The Colnago 2011 limited edition C59 Italia was made to recognize the Colnago C59, thus limiting the C59 Italia to a symbolic number of 59. As you may know, in past years, Colnago released other limited bikes: one in collaboration with Ferrari (CF 7), and the Colnago Master (celebrating 55 years of Colnago), which was last year’s limited model on display.

On display was 1 of 59 of the 2011 C59 Italia limited editions. With its Di2 battery pack concealed, the highly limited Colnago is sleek in design. Do you want to know where the battery is placed? The only way to know is if you buy one from Colnago, informed Colnago.

Everything about the limited Colnago C59 Italia shines, including the small section of brake cable exposed (resembles metal piping)…

Electra shares a new collection called the “Men’s Attitude Collection”. On show was the Mulholland 3i, Zarape 3i, and Lakester 3i, all new for 2011.

The graphics of each 2011 Electra– Mulholland 3i, Zarape 3i, and Lakester–are inspired by those on classic cars, or hot rods.

The 2011 Mulholland 3i, derived from American muscle with its sweeping lines and bold colors, will be available Spring 2011 for $799.99.

Zarape 3i takes on a lowrider look. In the lowrider world of restoration, many enthusiasts focus mainly on restoring a car’s running gear and external cosmetics, but when it comes time to change the upholstery, a Mexican blanket does the job. Car pinstripes were applied in various places across the frame in orange, while the main color used is a matte petrol. MSRP is $799.99, and will hit Electra retailers Spring 2011.

Last but not least is the 2011 Electra…
