Last week, New Atlas once again made the trip to Las Vegas to check out North America's biggest bike show – Interbike. As usual, there were all sorts of goodies on hand that we wanted to share with our readers. While we've already covered some of those things in separate articles, here's a quick recap plus a whole lot more.

As with past years' coverage, we didn't go to the show looking for stuff like Shimano's latest wheelset, or Pinarello's newest road bike. There are already plenty of other websites that cover those sorts of things, which cycling aficionados no doubt already peruse.

Instead, we were more interested in quirky products that really demonstrate outside-of-the-box thinking – we were also on the lookout for things that might be of interest even to non-cyclists.

So, with that in mind, go ahead and pay a visit to our photo gallery!
