Eurotastic 2013: Part 1

Posted by johnoldale on Friday August 30 2013

So, here we are at Eurobike, and once again every website under the sun has the latest and greatest produce replicated. I decided that for this year’s Spoke coverage I would simply put up pictures of things that I found interesting, buzzy or just generally Eurotastic.

First up is this little puppy from Propain bikes out of Eastern Europe. Now I know a lot of people who would be pretty chuffed with a full size version of this bike, never mind a 16″/ 20″ kids MEGA BIKE.

On the subject of kids’ bikes, Commencal have dropped this running bike with a disk brake.

Commencal also had this amazing titanium 29er trail bike. The sheer awesomeness of it meant I didn’t catch the model name, but if you’re a groomed trail legend then this could potentially be your new weapon of choice.

Dainese have got Blenky’s unwashed bike and kit casually leant up on their otherwise pristine booth.

Pretty Stoked to see a Zerode with a Fluxcapacitor attached, apparently this German professor can make you faster…

While everyone else was stressing about wheel sizes, the guys at Stringbike have decided to take a different avenue (needless to say this is a European brand).

Some of the dopest graphics I have ever seen are on this random carbon road bike.

My personal favourite bike of the show so far has to be the somewhat murdered out Norco Sight 3. Compulsory carbon frame and 27.5 wheels. Tentative pricing isn’t too insane either.

So… you happen to be a millionaire who has nothing better to do with your time than build trails. Then surely you need one of these limited edition Moots trail builder bikes. Front rack includes a Titanium Mcleod Tool… BALLER

Couldn’t persuade the other half that you needed a Klunker? Well this puppy by Garage 271 will have you divorced by the end of the year.

If the wheel size issue wasn’t confusing enough, Syntace have managed to take it to the next level by coming up with a 26″/27.5″ combo and demonstrated its amazingness with wheelbarrows. Wheelbarrows are cool.

Every year at Eurobike some Dragon’s Den heroes bring their wares to the table. This guy is flogging pads for your pedals for your bike rack. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Each night brands take it in turn to put on a party for their dealers. Tonight was Continental’s turn. They had their own branded beer and that massive guy from the advert. He seemed angry, so I decided to give him a kiss.

Till tomorrow
