The year’s biggest bike trade show, Eurobike officially starts on Wednesday.
After a quick presentation of facts and figures about the European bike industry (precis: it’s doing amazingly well while the rest of Europe’s economy still struggles) we were able to get a quick look at a few highlights from Cannondale, Sugoi and Dahon’s 2010 ranges.
Much more to come over the next few days.
Cannondale reveals Quick, son of Stealth & three-speed Baddie
Based on last year’s Stealth concept bike, this is Cannondale’s Quick Ultimate “sporty trail bike”. With a carbon frame and a suite of high-end components it weighs just 8.15kg and will retail for €2,499.
We’re already hearing a lot at Eurobike about a European trend for people to spend more on bikes, despite the recession, and Cannondale obviously thinks there’s a market for this machine, which features a very tidily integrated fork and custom seat tube.
