Gallery: the weird and wonderful of Eurobike 2018

Innovation and weird creations from this year's European trade show

Another Eurobike has come to a close. We saw a lot of new and interesting bicycles and accessories on display. Some of the highlights from this year's show include Ceramic Speed’s watt-saving, shaft-driven concept drivetrain, Rotor’s 13-speed hydraulic drivetrain and a new device to measure all sorts of aerodynamic data without the need for a wind tunnel.

In addition to these innovations, which all fall within the realm of being simultaneously weird and wonderful, there were many other interesting items on display. Some were beautiful, while others were very curious creations. Take a stroll through the gallery for a closer look at the weird and wonderful things we saw at Eurobike 2018.
