That's it, it's over, a quick whistle stop tour of Eurobike.
We were there for less than two days and ran around ragged to bring you a quick snap shot of what is new in our World.Here's the last of the goodies from Charley's camera
Pretty sure you will see these aboard BMX, Dirt and DH bikes.
Funn Hooka Cranksets in new wrap designs.
Did Norco have the sole license to manufacture bars with a wrap over them? If so that's now expired so expect a huge influx of this kind of thing.
Funn going color crazy.
Jim Van Doren would be happy with these. Who? I hear you ask, perhaps his middle name will give it away?
Funn MTB Waffle Grips.
Available with or without flange and of course lock-on.
Check the comments if you can't spot the fault...
I-Beam with a super low profile means less flex and extra tough.
SDG Patriot Saddle
Available in Black, White and Orange.
KS and SDG's romance has now blossomed, will kids follow? Let's see...
A marriage made in heaven?
Will Gravity Dropper be next?
Spy Shots from Clarks, the cable and brake pad people.
They have moved from my hometown in Birmingham to Tamworth, just up the road. I'll be there soon to bring you the latest on these brakes and the two pigs.
I've personally known Nick nearly 20 years. Anyone remember his first clothing company "Moves"? Of course you will know him from Royal Racing with his collaborations with Steve Peat. He's also free lanced for Troy Lee and more recently, Charge Bikes. Word is he is now off to New York to design the top baseball clubs team kit!
Think he can design clothes? You'll want to see him on a bike...
Checkout this purple helmet.
Giro making the move to get down with the kids.
Kryptonite New York Legend Chain.
If only Santacruz UK had these the other week.
15mm Round Chain Links are harder for bolt croppers to get a clean edge on.
90cm length $159
150cm length $239
Notice the one end of the chain passes through the other ends last link. Added security and tougher to "Bost".
If so then you will easily recognize Ollie from the start line. His words are gospel.
Been to the Megavalanche?
Whilst everyone is going crazy with the graphics, POC deliver the Ikea standard. Clean and lettuce crisp new colours for 2010.
New padded side panels, think 661 Kyle Strait.
POC VPD Joint Knee
The top of the rim inside is fitted with a silicon band. Guaranteed to keep her in place and pull a few hairs out on the way.
Now with new sleeve sock to keep her in place as well as lose a few hairs plus pads at side.
POC VPD Bone Knee
Same features as the above, just longer! Also comes with rubber guards on the reverse to protect your calves from that dreaded pedal slip.
POC VPD Long
Flip out floor legs, inflates both Schraeder and Presta tubes and has one big mutha dial.
Park PFP-5 Track Pump
Yes we know this isn't exactly ground breaking new kit but trust me, some of these readers have never seen one of these before.
ParkTool Pizza Cutter
This is what bike shows should be about, bells and whistles!
My Dad was on the look out for a new shirt whilst he was there.
Your thoughts please...
Let's be honest if you were racing time trials then this would be the one to do it on.
Timo Bracuts Giant TT
Mavic on display, note the new yellow DeeMax Ultimates.
Forget the Channel Tunnel, this one was much more interesting.
24 spokes, what more can we tell you? Well we have a set on test coming soon so hold fire for the word.
Mavic Crossmax ST
RaceFace 5 bolt pattern
SE = Scott Enterprise
SE OM Flyer
OM = Old Man
Not quite what Barel ran at the Worlds. A mix-up between the new Giant and the Lapierre regards finish and looks.
Designed in the UK and a test on the way (that rhymes!).
Do Quad hold the license for wavy rotors? That's a hot topic...
Are these all the Rage?
Don't like yours much...
Next year the entire PinkBike crew are looking to hit the show, mob handed so expect the coverage to be 100 times better than this, video and all.
That said they are stepping up for Interbike in Vegas so keep it locked here for better looking girls and more bike bits that shine.
Free 1st Class Postage on every order.
Many thanks to Charles Robertson who was the official Pinkbike snapper throughout the trip.
Here is a sample of his work
