Cycle Show 2016

Heading to the Cycle Show? Here’s a few tidbits to help whet the appetite….img_5774

First off, straight in front of the doors is the Shimano stand, with a few examples of their latest kit on show, including both the new Dura Ace, but also the urban groupset Metrea – and that’s quite a looker in real life!

Head round the corner and drop in on Torq they’ve got their limited edition beer flavoured gel to sample…..

Like bike-packing? you’re going to love Laura Scott’s Kinesis on display at their stand, and around the corner there’s a fully loaded Orange bike-packing steed, complete with a full complement of Restrap bags #sweetimg_5853

In the mood for some daring-do? Check out the e-bike MTB track, 400 tonnes of soil brought in to show how awesome the bosche electronic motor is for MTBs – and it’s much fun! Just don’t overcook it on the corners as the 5-speed motor can surprise you in ‘turbo’ mode!img_5793

And if you’ve crashed and thwacked your head, then maybe have a chat with the guys over at Headkayse – they’ve got an interesting Kickstarter success story, a rather unique, reusable, folding helmet for the urban rider – using a proprietary material that can withstand more than one impact, and still fold down to fit into your bag! Entirely made in England as well no less!img_5784

Then to finish the show perhaps a trip to Canyon to check out their Olympic bike and the flippin lovely new Endurace CF SLX 9.0 – pretty much the only bike you’d ever need for road riding!2016-09-22-12-01-36

Hungry? Then that’ll be time for some sugary treats from Lucho Dillitos and their straight from Colombia bocadillo energy snack. Wrapped in palm leaves and handmade in Colombia they are a new addition to the UK scene but apparently a firm favourite in South America.2016-09-23-12-01-46

As you leave the show, watch out for the POC stand, so much loveliness there to empty your wallet…..2016-09-23-13-58-50

Enjoy the show!
