How many BMX workers did you have at the booth: I was there 100% of the time and then I had sales reps who would come and go. Typically there were 2 people there, but sometimes more and sometimes less. The last day of the show is always slow. But the first two days were boomin'.

You have a different approach to each year's interbike, what was your way of attack in 2006: Making parts in assorted colors and updating the entire SNAFU line. We currently have 43 items that we are either being updating or created new for 2007. Plus we are going to surround ourselves with pretty girls as much as possible. Bingo Bango!
Brand: Felt Bicycles Booth number: 626 Size dedicated to BMX: 50 x 60 total booth
How many BMX bikes did you have at the show: 20 complete bikes
How many BMX workers did you have at the booth: Of course I was in the BMX area the entire time but each sales rep would also walk each dealer through the line. I did my fair share of talking but would basically just hangout and wait for specific detail questions form the reps or dealers. So we had about 20 or so workers doing the entire line and me being 100% BMX.

We want lighter frames, we want stronger parts and we want cheaper bikes. This doesn't always go hand in hand. We checked in with Mirraco's "Product guy" Jean-Luc Ferre who gives us an insight on triple butting, tubing thickness, heat treating and that sort of stuff. Weight is a big factor for BMX bikes these days. What can be done to a frame to save weight? Jean Luc: Obviously, reducing the thickness and diameter of the tubing plays a big role. There is a limit, though, in how far we can go for both. Using single, double or triple-butted tubing is another mean of reducing weight by optimizing tube thickness where needed. Other ways of reducing weight: - Designing smaller and thinner dropouts (5 or 4mm thick), heat-treatment is required in that case, - Using smaller BB shells and bearings (Euro is most likely the lightest type), - Reducing the thickness of the head tube (same, heat-treatment is required in that case).
