Electric scooter or a folding bike ...

Or if you want a folding bike with your electric scooter, this is two booths down.


classic road cruiser don t touch

This custom painted cruiser had a "don't touch" sign below it. I could not resist and touched it a little bit and it changed my life.


no photos machine

The Taipei Cycle Show is for all things cycle, if you are in the market for a CNC machine or some testing equipment, this is the show for you.


It is just simple math.

This makes sense right? It is just simple math.

KS booth

There are a variety of different booths in Taipei. KS goes for a classic island coffee shop feel, the booth below goes for the no frills approach.


not much booth

cc booth

Cane Creek's booth was clean and informative, using iPads connected to their website to keep everyone up to date.


angle set

Cane Creek engineers use Jedi Mind Tricks to keep the pieces of an angle set floating in this clear cylinder. These are the headsets you are looking for.


cc names

What's your DB Rider Name?


outside

After three days of fluorescent lights and recycled air the outside world has never been so appealing.


Do you want a folding bike that will grow with you SlidyBike is the bike for you the top tube slides making the bike longer or shorter. Short setting seen here ...

Do you want a folding bike that will grow with you? SlidyBike is the bike for you, the top tube slides, making the bike longer or shorter. Short setting seen here ...


I wonder how long this plastic run bike would last with Jackson Goldstone riding it.

This is the bike of the show for obvious reasons. Not only is it pink but looks at those wheels.

 Why are 650B tyres being marketed as 27.5 in the states? They are nowhere near 27.5 in size. They are roughly 26.8 inches. Marketing them as 27.5 is a huge mistake imo. It makes them seem bigger than they are which puts off the guys who dont like the idea of big wheels.
  • + 0
 They are afraid that the 650b label would confuse an American.

 Wheelie Animal. it's mocking me, I suck at wheelies...

 I think displaying tyres with screws is nonsense. We all know that once you slice tubeless tires just a bit the fluid just doesn't stop air from coming off.
[Reply]
