As BikeRadar rolls on with coverage of this year's Interbike trade show, it's about time we brought you something a little different.

As you can expect from a show held in Las Vegas, not everything that happens out there will make it home, but here at BikeRadar we've compiled a gallery of some of the weirdest and most wonderful sights the show had to offer.

You'll find everything from military-themed lycra to a bicycle wine rack in the gallery above – and even a surprise visit from Mr T!
