Jaws dropped at the sight of the 2011 Scott Scale 29 RC at Interbike. The 29er is claimed to be the lightest in the world.

The 2011 Scott Scale 29 RC weighs in at a astonishing 949 grams. When the frame was manufactured, a IMP3 carbon process was applied plus HMX-net fiber runs through the tubing. SDS engineering went into the frame to dampen shock.

The forks on the 2011 Scale 29 RC are Fox 32 F29 Fit and 100mm of travel. Other components running on the Scale 29 RC are SRAM XX, 20 speed, Avid XX carbon disc brakes, 42/28 double chainring, and PF BB92 bottom bracket.

Tubeless ready, the 2011 Scale 29 RC comes equipped with DT Swiss XR 29 wheelset and Schwalbe Rocket Ron EVO Kevlar tires.

Joe Breeze, one of the founding fathers of mountain biking had a chance to sit down with us and go over the 2011 line. Mr. Breeze was excited to share the 2011 Breezer Greenway DX commuter.

The Breezer 2011 Greenway DX uses the same frame as the Liberty, which is designed by Joe Breeze. A key point on the 2011 Breezer Greenway series is that there’s a bike for everyone’s budget within the line.

With the 2011 Greenway DX, you can shift through 24 speeds, which is assisted by SRAM Via shifters, crankset and derailleurs. Overall, the setup of the bike allows you to place after market fenders, carriers, and various lighting systems.

Taj Mihelich debuts his new line of bikes, known as the Fairdale at InterBike. Two models were on display, both prototype commuter bikes.

When friends would ask Mihelich what kind of bike they should purchase for commuting, Mihelich didn’t know how to answer. Therefore, he decided to start Fairdale.

One of the highlights for Fairdale is the prices, which at this time was not stated but are said to be very affordable.

As of now, we have two commuter bikes (prototypes) pictured, but coming soon from Fairdale is a 29 inch BMX bike, 700c cruiser bike, and 26 inch wheeled single speed.

Both Fairdale’s are different: One uses drop bars and the other riser bars, fenders, and a rear basket that can hold a skateboard. More from the line coming soon.

The 2011 Trek Madone 5 Series is virtually the same as last year’s series, except details on where its produced.

Along with the other Madones, the Trek Madone 5 Series is produced in the United States, but the 2011 series is produced in Asia. Because the 5 series is being produced in Asia for 2011, retailers are able to obtain them at a cheaper price, about $1,000 less for a Dura-Ace model, without sacrificing quality.

The Trek 2011 Madone 5 Series features the same round seat mast as the 6 series. This adds for a more compliant bike and reduces some weight.

Throughout the series, Trek uses TCT carbon technology. TCT will go through the whole engineering process as the OCLV carbon. The only difference is TCT is produced in facilities around the world.

Lastly, a BB90 bottom bracket is added, the widest bb on the market. With…
