Taipei Cycle Show 2017: The good, the bad and the ugly

A mega gallery of the best, worst and weirdest things we've seen this week

Taipei’s bike show is at its most interesting when it’s at its most weird, niche or out-there. The annual event showcases just how varied bikes can be with some truly interesting concepts on show. It’s here that you get to see what happens when designers and engineers are unfettered by the rational. Some of it is good, some of it is bad, and some of it is downright ugly. Take a look at the gallery above to get your fix.
