Eurobike Round Up: The Beautiful, the Odd, and the Curious

Eurobike is an interesting place, chock full of nearly everything you could imagine that is related to the bicycle even in the smallest ways.

Eurobike Randomness – Tange, Paduano, Hot Chili, Acros and More

Occasionally, the showstopper for a booth isn’t the bikes or components, but a one-off afterthought like this.
