So even this year Eurobike has come to an end. Four crazy days with bikes bikes bikes, meetings, new faces, old faces, new products and old ones.
As far as i could see the biggest trend is e-bikes, nowadays you can buy parts från Shimano for your e-bike, special helmets, e-mtb and even e-fatbike! I don’t want to say if it’s good or not but it’s a fact that e-bikes are taking a big chunk in the bike world. The other two trends that i could see where more and more fat bikes and more and more adventure bikes, bags and racks.
Of course i visited my brands and saw a lot of nice Chris King hubs and headsets and a lot of shining product from White Industries. But i also checked upp new interesting brands: Findra, Effetto Mariposa Selle Italia brand new saddle Net, Palomar new bottle and some more. You will see some of them in the webshop soon. For more info and pictures check my Instagram.
Santa Cruz showed outstandig bikes as always, at the Enve booth you could see two amazing V10 and even a special Vanilla bike made for the Chris King 40th anniversary. I was disappointed by Giro that last year had a great collection. When i asked if they had changed the designer they told me that they want to concentrate on more technical clothing. Boring. Nothing really innovative.
POC showed some very interesting prototype of a coming commuter collection. Keep an eye on POC beginning of fall.
Probably the best news is that Bavabici will be able to sell Surly again! It’s gonna take a little bit of time before everything is fixed but soon i will be able to offer Surly again.
