Lighter frames and bigger wheels is how 2012’s road and mountain bike offerings from German online giants Rose can be best summed up. On the tarmac side, the X-Lite TT-Flyer was again taking pride of place on their stand at Eurobike, after its launch in Munich earlier this year.
There was also a new range of lightweight carbon fibre and alloy road bikes called Xeon. Changes to Rose’s off-road line-up are typical of what we’ve been seeing at the Freidrichshafen trade show this year – a big shift towards 29ers. Check out our image gallery for the heads-up.
