If you’re heading down to the London Bike Show, here’s what to look out for…
Obviously we’re there, and we’ve got free one month subs to give away as well as cowbells and magazines to sell.
We’re next to Canyon
Who’s Strive has been getting a lot of attention.
The new Marins are on display.
There’s the electric Haibikes, that caused a bit of a stir when we reported on them at Winter PressCamp.
Lumicycle should have something new to show you, it hadn’t arrived by the time we headed north yesterday so we had to make do with stroking their cyberman (not a euphemism).
In the vicinity are Empire, with their 3D printed MTB.
And the UK built MX6 – EVO (£999 for frameset) which will easily switch between 27.5…
… and 26″, with a swap out of the swing arm shock mount and lower headset race to keep angles and handling the same.
Singular have a good range on show including the Puffin (as being raced by Aidan Harding at this years Iditabike)
A redesigned Swift
Which now has better tyre/mud clearance.
Vitus are displaying their popular and very affordable enduro/trail/gnarly XC bike; the Escarpe 275VRS
On Extra’ s stand you can see the new Ergon enduro saddle; the SME3-M
and grips designed with input from Fabien Barel.
And plenty of Intense bling.
Continental and Schwalbe are both available for durometer fans.
JVC are showing their Adixxion HD cameras.
Cannondale have a Chipps-esque one off leopard print tri bike. Luckily the MTB’s on display are either stealth black or more traditional green/white and black.
And Hope are showing all the new product we reported on from Core
They’ve also got Guy Martin’s proper fast bike.
Opening times for Sunday 16th February: 9am – 5pm.
