Highlights from iceBike*

by Chipps 18

Here’s a jumbo look at some of the new stuff being shown at Madison’s iceBike* trade show this week… There’s a lot, so you might as well get comfy.

Park has a new Premium Rescue Tool, with valve core remover, piston retractor and more.


One for the tubeless fans with a compressor - a proper Park inflator head!


Thule's Pack and Pedal range works with front and full suspension.


Thule's clever roll-top pannier has this translucent blinkie pouch.


Don't have tons of room? How about this Thule folding towbar twin bike mount?


Folds out to take two 30kg bikes, complete with lights and number plate.


Madison is now carrying the Chariot range of convertible child joggers/trailers (even ski sledge versions)

Giro Republic is the new shoe from the big G. It’s not racing, it’s not mountain biking, but it’s somewhere in between. With a slight bowling shoe look and a nylon, walkable shoe, it’s probably too cool for touring, but that’s what it’ll be great for. That and gravel racing adventures of course…


The Giro Republic. Great? Or horrible? We're sure you'll tell us.


The Chamber seems a lot more low profile than when we last saw it.


Did the two weeks of spring allow for white shoes yet?


Bottom of the Republic. Replaceable rubbery bits.


Genesis showed the proto of its new Caribou bike.


That's not a snow bike. That's a woods bike. Apparently.


Still proudly Reynolds.


Lots of mud clearance - and that's not a slim tyre.


Here's the production Caribou. The colour is a sort of lemon brulée hue


Complete 1x10 bikes and framesets available.


Gold and cream anyone?




Here's Gamut's new double ring chainguide using just a slider, rather then the clever O-ring of its single ring guide.




SIS showed the 'world's first recovery gel' which, confusingly, you seem to take before exercise.


Many fruity flavours of SIS gel


White Lightning are all about clean things. Here are some green bamboo hand (and bike) wipes.


Clean lube and clean, er, cleaners.


Need to keep your trousers in check? You need a 'Leg Johnny'


And a Bike Johnny for keeping your bike grease off the cat.


Can you guess what the Wheel Johnny does?


K-Edge showed a huge range of machined gizmos, including these GoPro and Garmin mounts.


Designed to stop the chain unshipping and crunching your BB shell...


Genesis also showed these (retro?) colour designs on its Volant frames


A spread of Saracens. We still have a soft spot for the Amplitude.


Saracen's 'Hack' bikes are possibly the best-looking hooligan road bikes ever


Turquoise is IN, reckons Pearl Izumi. We like.


There's 'black and baggy' too if you're a bit shy.


This is a Pearl Izumi running jacket that'll work great for mountain biking.


Madison's own-brand clothing reckons that bright is definitely in for 2013


This TruFlo pump looks great. Small enough to fit in a pack...


...but opens to twice the size, with a foot stirrup and a pop-out pressure gauge too.


Even smaller is this TruFlo pump with a pull-out hose an easy switch presta/schrader adaptor.


M-Parts makes all sorts of handy stuff. Soon its upper and lower headsets will be available to buy separately.


Garmin showed its new Garmin 810 with far more interactivity (like Bluetooth)


The 510 will also promise more two-way stuff.


The new Garmin Fenix watch is like having an Edge 200 on your wrist. Great for multi-sports folks.

  1. Can’t believe you didn’t mention the hip flask holder on the Caribou prototype.

  2. I thought everyone had one of those… 🙂

  3. What were Park smoking with the compressor gun? What we want: A normal, cheap inflator with a presta and schrader end. What we get? A supersoaker.

  4. If i see those Hacks much more ‘mi bik iz saricin’ is going to apply

  5. I like the Park gun, would love one for my workshop. Bet it’s silly money though.

    One if those TruFlo mini track pumps looks more useful though.

  6. Prefer the prototype colour scheme of the Genisis.. Shame they aren’t going with it.

  7. That’s their ‘special’ colour scheme. All the road protos are that colour scheme too, as are the Madison/Genesis road team bikes. They do like to listen though.

  8. Caribou looks nice in the ‘Lemonl brulée’. More refined than some of the other budget fatbikes around.

  9. Got a Hack in my LBS, keep looking at it and thinking fast pub bike commuter etc….BB7s needed though!

  10. Hack do look good, but what’s with the black one. Is it a huge front ring or just pushing the chain alignment to the max?

  11. Any more photos/info on that BB mounted chain keeper thingy? Ta.

  12. I’m getting a shoe fetish. The Republic looks lovely. Any idea on price?

  13. That Park compressor head doesn’t look very practical unless the valve adaptor extends out of it. You really want about 8″ of flexible hose after the guage so you can reach through racks etc.

  14. Yes definately prefer the proto genesis colour to that lemon sick.

  15. Oh god Have I watched too much of my Missus’ sex and the city videos? I am in love with those Republics! Yummy dahling! Simply to die for!

  16. Woo! Wait up! A hip flask holder?!? The colour is ok. Can live with it. Thankyou for making my week singletrack Bike fellers!(and lass!) Some lovely stuff to dream about, starting to like torqouise too, has a theraputic effect on me. ;0D

  17. They missed a cover just for your spare tyres…,the Rubber Johnny!.Like the Caribou,maybe just wants the logos blanking out with a marker pen …Surely (Surly)??.
