Another year of walking the Interbike show floor and no matter how sore our feet get we never get tired of discovering what companies are coming out with cool new products. With bikes, e-bikes, gear, tech, bike style, and more filling the show floor, it was nearly impossible to not get excited for the year ahead. Here are the products that grabbed our attention.
Tern – GSD The GSD is designed to carry two kids, a week’s worth of groceries, or 400lbs of cargo, but it’s only 6 feet long—the same length as a standard ebike. With Tern’s best-in-class folding technology, it packs down small enough to fit in a VW Touran or an urban apartment. Plus, it adjusts to fit riders from 4-8″ to 6′ 4″—so mom, dad and the kids can all share it.

The internal motion sensor makes sure that any persistent meddling with your sacred two-wheeler triggers a loud alarm.
WIKE – Salamander The Salamander Cycle/Stroller operates perfectly as a Dutch style cargo bicycle or a child stroller and transitions between the two instantly and without effort. You can cycle to the bus or subway, convert to a stroller and enter the transit system, then go everywhere that transit can take you. You can cycle to a mall or an apartment building, convert to stroller, and walk in.

Riese & Muller – The Packster 40 The Packster 40 holds more than it promises: At 2.23 metres, it is only slightly longer than a conventional bike, despite its large cargo area.
