The Odd World of Eurobike in 69 Photos

Aug 29, 2014
by Dave Trumpore  
I've never been to Eurobike, and while my primary purpose for being at the show was to connect with clients and friends to talk a bit of business I couldn't help but feel a bit overwhelmed and intrigued by the hustle and bustle of the show. While most of the relevant bikes and components to the Pinkbike audience have been documented over the past few days and months, or seen previously under World Cup and EWS riders, there are literally thousands of booths and products that you just never see or hear about. With that in mind I set out with a camera for one lap of the entire show, all 13 expo halls, the 2 outdoor courtyards in between, and even a quick peek into the car park. With no agenda and no appointments my only goal was to shoot a few photos of things that grabbed my attention, be it because they were just bizarre, or actually kind of cool did not matter. From outlandish marketing claims to products that leave you more confused than amused and a bit of everything in between, enjoy my One Lap of Eurobike 2014.

Warning: A sense of humor, and understanding of sarcasm, and possibly some parental guidance is advised.

 OFC yxbix had to be from Estonia to make such a comment, a country below EU average in gender equality. Does not it feel nice to judged by the basis of which country you come from?

Objectifying of the woman body is a huge problem when it comes to gender inequality so yeah that "marketing trick" is hurting about 50% of the worlds population. Putting it in relation to another evil like war just to diminish the problem is low but if it pleases you to know I've used all my democratic rights to take stance against wars.

Again, PB, you should not even recognize such behavior from biking companies.

 As I've said , that's your opinion and we respect it but you should point your finger to more important things.

 chill out, MendelMu, I see your point and never meant to hurt your feelings or your country. But to be honest, yes, nobody here feels it is right to have "gender-neutral" kindergartens and government regulations on proportion of male/female CEOs in state companies. But if that is where we're heading, I can cope with it. However this particular marketing trick, IMO, contains nothing criminally sexist.

 Problem 1 is that it perpetuates the idea that cycling is just "for us guys" and makes women feel excluded from the sport when they see this kind of "marketing".
Problem 2 is that it treats men like idiots - the idea that we will be drawn to a product, not for its own merits but because of the bewbies.
Problem 3 is (perhaps most important) that it reinforces the idea that pretty women are good for nothing but looking at, in the context of our society, and have no merit of their own unless they are exposing themselves in public for the guys' benefit.

Oh and @DaveTrumpore that's Marcel Kittel you dumbass; mutiple TDF stage winner... be very ashamed.

TLDR: @MendelMu has a point.

 Kellys is a brand located on Czech Republic. Every year they have the custom to present their bikes next to beatiful girls "overdressed" with a unique boby paint.
It is more like an alternative/creative presentation rather than a marketing trick (at least in my opinion). Nothing more nothing less.

 @stephanfresh when the rest of the show is dressed fairly casual, especially those selling $10k bikes, you look ridiculously overdressed when you wear a suit to staff a booth seeking wire racks and kids helmets.... This would be the case in any country ;-)

 @davetrump. First of all, I didn´t mean to destroy your article or anything of the sort... but you gotta say, that coming from America into a European show, you maybe should not be "making fun" of europes bike riders, because many will probably read the article afterwards, and you are also "criticising" other peoples work even if it is questionable marketing. Also probably those stands selling kids helmets and racks aren´t much in itself, so if on top of that they would dress casually, well the image wouldn´t be great...that said.... I hadn´t read the begginig of your article where you clearly state it is a joke..., MY BAD so sorry man, next time I´l read carefully before missjudging... ouh and also when u say " Brook's takes my favorite bike of the show part two. I want this bike, but worry I don't own Classy enough clothes to actually ride it." try asking one of those guys for a suit that will fit you. Someone has to show some class in "the jungle".Really hope I didn´t piss you off to much ;-)

 Seriously, if we can't make fun of the insanity and ridiculous of tradeshows, you guys are living your lives far too seriously. Whether it is Eurobike, ISPO, Interbike, or SIA or whatever other large international show there may be, there is always crazy stuff in said show that should make any citizen cringe and laugh. It's not an American's attack on Europe- Dave treats all ridiculousness with the same degree of equality and would waste no time poking fun at American's doing the same thing.

 I am sad to report that I've just been to the Mecca of Spandex, that is Lake Garda and the numbers of E-Enduro bikes used there are staggering. there are literaly more 2014-2015 bikes on 650B wheels with electric engines, than ones without. Non ebikes are mainly 29ers, freaking gajillions of them. A guy in the bike shop told me that there are more and more locations in NOrthern Italy having those bikes as rentals. They are becoming extremely popular. At least there is plenty of helipads around.

Fear not though... the average age and gender of a user of such bike is a woman 30-50, which means: fear of falling. Despite a huge army of amateurs swarming the city center, asphalt roads and fire roads, there is very very few people on proper trails, ones of a kind that an average PB user might find interesting to ride. A rumour has it (I have been told by a major retailer) that many companies are now designing ebikes for kids, even in 20" sizes!!! That is due to success of selling those ebikes to middle aged women.

 I was quoting the MTB vs Road Bike rap battle. I have had a road bike before. An old litespeed classic. I did put bull horns, eggbeaters and trigger shifters on it though. I do think spandex is gay but if my chicken legs were buff enough to be touching each other I'd probably be thankful for them. The tour is booooring as hell to watch but, I used to like the clips from Red Bull road rage. I have run road wheels off road with cyclocross tyres before and don't know why XC guys don't just put a SuS fork on a flat bar cyclocross bike. I used to commute on a Scott SUB which is a commuter bike but now use my squishy as I am sick of getting flats. I am looking to upgrade the tyres to Marathons though and get back on it to stop the wear on my knobbys. I'm sure roadies laugh just as hard at me with my 17.5 kg squishy, non aero baggy clothes, heavy backpack and Camel jumping kerbs as I do at them with their loud coloured clothes, fragile bikes and obedient road manners.

 @eatridegrow For the most part, we are stupid enough to be affected by female beauty/sexuality. I wish it weren't so, but our biology betrays us, and with very few exceptions, every guy on here has been owned by that biology at least once. For some women, sexuality is a competitive advantage, and using it to make money or to advance themselves is their own choice. Now, as a marketing guy in the sporting goods industry, I'd prefer to work for a company that believes in it's product enough to forgo the use of overt sexuality...but that's just me.

 hey, my friend THE-WANKER-RIDER, how goes it?
It's funny cause I was in North Africa last week, exactly in the east, near Barcelona.
And the funniest thing is that I met your mom, she's a great cocksucka, you know?

 the odd world of Eurobike is much more interesting than a sausage lunch, a wheel building machine, an e-bike or someone' s effort to recognize a world class athlete under an article with sexual referenced title. This was just a selection of photos based on the questionable marketing claim part four: "some cleverish comments and a nude chick will do the job"
Next time try harder there is an international audience here.
  • 5 2
 which is exactly why this is the "odd" part of Eurobike, and let's face it- identifying sarcasm is not very easy for non-native English speakers. Most of the people getting annoyed at this article and missing interpreting (or fully missing the jokes) are the ones who are most likely not native English speakers.
  • 2 2
 rather a culture than a language problem here. You don't have to be a native English (or american) speaker to expect some quality
And in every language humor is a good thing sarcasm is not.

 I couldn't help but notice that the cut-away of the e-bike motor has a lot of plastic internals. Plastic internals+electric motor= short life span.

 I wouldn't call those guys in suits overdressed. There's a business aspect to this show and it's only as a matter of professionalism that these gents are dressed this way.

 From this article, pick how many ways you can tell the author has no idea about anything road biking even if it slapped him in the face... that said, some funny stuff there.

 Or he knows his audience is a MTB website and is just trying to have a little fun about the whole thing. I can assure you that your author is very well versed in all things bicycle related ;-). If I was writting the same piece for a Roadie site you'd probably see equally satirical comments about free riders in skinny jeans ;-)

 I think the Author said everything by saying: " Around just about every corner there is a reminder that you are in Europe"????? that is based on the guy wearing the Aero helmet ?????
Or whas because nobody was using suits and back packs? or ...no Fahrenheit day temperature Display...or what?
We do leave in a very globalised world with places like Texas or Chicago (where I graduate) or Wisconsin having very different ways of doing things. What is not bad, you just Need to know MORE , like why a guy is wearing a suit before call it overdressed. He may needed if the customer is waiting requires that:
In the times I went to the "cycle Show" in Anheim, I could put such a collection of shots like that in minutes and start being sarcastic from the very first "how are you" from somebody that do not wait for any answer from me..so why ask? I knew where I was so ...no Point in being sarcastic or descreminate a culture or way of doing Business.
It may be the right time to create a more global (international) plarform...like "Pure Bike" lol

 or that helmets that have flip down visor goggles are a very European style, which is factually correct. No need to take it a level of judgement that is not needed. Relax.
