More bling from Eurobike

The lurid and the lovely from last week's show

Eye watering colours and designs are always guaranteed to catch the eye at Eurobike. Here's some more, we hope it feeds the beast.


Litespeed had their show winner Arcon on display. Taking obvious styling from its carbon-framed rivals, the Arcon features a wrapped top tube/headtube interface. Litespeed claim this increases stiffness to a level never before experienced on titanium frames.

The ovalized junction at the bottom bracket complements the top tube stiffness and as does the oversized, v-bend chainstays and oval seat stays. It's nice to actually see the effort someone hand god to in hand building the Arcon a frame theses day what with all the dark art of carbon ruling the roost


Similar mouth-watering stuff from Merlin. The Works CR, above, is Merlin's high performance road bike with traditional lines especially compared alongside Litespeed's Arcon. Its frame features MTS2 butted, tapered and shaped 3/2 titanium tubing. Added stiffness comes form the 1in chainstays.

If you're after comfort and Ti elegance then you may prefer Merlin's Cyrene. A more subtle ride, but still with a delicate nature, check out that engraved tubing.


Scott was at it again with their customized paint jobs on the Scott Addict team bikes of Saunier Duval-Prodir. Here's the Spiderman Addict belonging to Simoni. Spaniard Angel Marchante Gomez, meanwhile, goes for a Don Coyote theme.


Still on custom paint jobs, check this number aboard Endorfin's Speed III frame. The limited 101 frames feature reproduced press clippings from L'Equipe and La Gazzetta dello Sport of Tour de France stages.


Say it loud say it proud with the distinctive Planet-X Stealth Pro Time Trial bike.


Isaac goes for a striped affair with their Joule Aerotic. Fluid dynamics tested the frame has been optimised for improved aerodynamics. Stiff yet Isaac claim that the frame has been given a degree of compliance for long distance trial.


 

Acros had an array of coloured headset on display. You shouldn't have a problem finding one for your pink time trial bike.


There are new colours for Prologo's Choice saddles including the women's range. Also revealed at the show the new 158g, carbon railed Scratch Nack saddle, below. Maybe that name's a case of 'lost in translation' for we Brits!


Moving to accessories, Knog had one of the best stands of the show, more from them later. Check out their new "Love & Hate" and "Ride Hard" gloves. Perfect for the club run.


They'd go perfectly with these white and lime green road shoes for Northwave.


And for now we'd like to finish on these gorgeous pair of DMT Kyoma track shoes. You'd be the John Travolta of the track in these fabulous dabs .
