Tradeshow Gallery – Cool Road Bikes from Orbea, Cannondale, Ridley & More!

At Eurobike and Interbike, there’s always bikes that aren’t necessarily new, but still worth checking out. Here’s our collection of road bikes.

Orbea had Red Bull athlete Josef Ajram’s Seven Islands road bike on display with it’s eyecatching blue and silver paint scheme. What’s Seven Islands? Discover that and some sinister paint schemes from Cannondale, Ridley and other great stuff after the break…

Ridley had Andre Greipel’s race bike with a custom gorilla paint scheme.

And this completely uncomfortable looking TT/Triathlon rig.

Cannondale had Sagan’s “Tourminator” SuperSix road bike complete with fully custom airbrushed Terminator graphics.

We’ve covered Culprit’s disc-or-rim-brake road bike here, but he’s got a range of standard, UCI-approved race bikes, too.

We’ve also spotted his kids road bikes before, but being able to pick them up gave me a much better appreciate for how light they are compared to most children’s bicycles. If your little sprout is into riding or racing, these are worth a look.

Argon’s product lifecycle tends to span about three years so they can maximize the investment in their molds and frames, and 2013 happens to be a sort of in between year. All road and triathlon bikes get the expected spec updates, but mostly carry forward unchanged save for a bit of increased Di2/EPS compatibility. Above, the Gallium, their lightweight race bike.

They may not be brand spanking new, but they’re still great bike to look at. Note the unique seat clamp design.

One of their more unique features is the 3D Headtube, which locks larger spacers into the frame to effectively extend the headtube. This lets you dial the fit and stem height better with a more solid solution than normal spacers.

i wonder if there might be a (somewhat!) affordable tourminator edition possibly on c’dale’s horizon? I’m not a big one for corny gimmicky stuff, but unless he was on drugs (god forbid) it appears sagan could dominate most anything he might want to in the very near future. so far he’s won just about everything he’s entered. regards—
