Last week I dropped in on Eurobike. It was the same super big impressive affair as ever. Specialized and Trek weren't there, but most other big players were.
Here's a few pics in no particular order.
now where did I put my sombrero?
retro and light
must try this, if it's any good we'll sell in the xcracer shop
so many Thru axles options, partticularly on the rear 12mm (annoyingly) ... we'll be listing the lightweight Carbon Ti rears in the shop v. soon
the carbon Tune Blackfoot crankset
Absolute Black cycle cross Thick Thin. Both 110 & 130 BCD.
Absolute Black 68 BCD Thick Thin, might provide a better chain line for the single ring up front ... limited on size though.
more of a "trail" hub, but good looking
Schurter's Windham machine
Schurter uses a chain catcher on the thick thin, mind you have you seen him over those rocks ...
if you've got the "wonga"
now that's a show bike ... tied, belted, fat with red trimmings
bike storage from Outline Works
I quite like these Tioga Spyder seats, finally they've made them even lighter with carbon rails ... not a bad saddle in rare dry conditions
a dry butt in all countries
dropping the front end on the Leftys
standard cage with hip flask slot, whiskey and coke anyone?
when the bikes are so-so ...
nice looking rigid fork
the original carbon
Schwalbe Pro core, will be interesting to see how this evolves ... might be too `£/heavy for XC + we shrub off those threads quite quickly
grippy flats, shaped like a hip flask ... now there's an idea
Would turn heads at the local sportive
the German brand's marathon racing machine
Lots of bright colours from Scott ... thought this was a KTM for moment
Absolute black lightweight rear cassette upgrades
The Cubes look the biz, here's an electronic geared one
it felt light, sub 1kg?
rasta colouring from Gore
