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

acros carbon fiber chessboard with headsets for pieces

Occasionally, the showstopper for a booth isn’t the bikes or components, but a one-off afterthought like this. Acros’ booth had their hydraulic shifting system, which was shown in a couple additional anodized colors from what we saw at PressCamp, but the real eye candy was this carbon fiber chess board with headsets for pieces.

Eurobike Randomness – Veloboy, Xcite, Tested on Human & Other Crazy Stuff

Xcite carbon fiber mountain bike suspension fork

Seems my “miscellaneous” folder from Eurobike knows no bounds. Here, a collection of random bits that (mostly) quality as awesome.

Above, the Xcite carbon fiber fork from German:A with some rather interesting dropouts. This was sitting in CarbonTi’s booth as a showpiece for their chainrings and such, but it’s quite the work itself. Note the centreally placed brake arch over the wheel, then click on through to see more features and other goodies…

Eurobike Randomness – Nuke Proof, Pinion & Parts of Passion

Parts of Passion cycling components carbon fiber seatposts and seatmasts and seat collar clamps

Parts of Passion started as a distributor of lightweight parts and, since 2008, has slowly morphed into a product manufacturer.

For the post and mast, the tube is full carbon with alloy bracket and pins and titanium bolts. The collar is a carbon fiber clamp with aluminum bolt and ti screw. All are available in a variety of sizes and shapes.

More from them, plus Nuke Proof’s new body armor and some interesting gear box concepts from Pinion, after the break…


Eurobike Randomness – Biciclista, Firefly, Crema Cycles, Thule & Orange

firefly custom titanium cyclocross bike with ENVE stem from Crema Cycles

You may recall the startup Firefly brand founded by ex-Independent Fabrications folks. Their European importer (or at least a great shop that sells their wares), Crema Cycles, had a custom cyclocross bike with trick ENVE stem displayed in their booth.

Right behind it was their own brand steel disc brake ‘cross racer, and in front were some sweet custom jerseys from Biciclista. All that, and more, right through here…

DT Swiss 2012 Eurobike Preview


From the looks of things, DT Swiss has been hard at work in order to unveil a ton of new product at the upcoming Eurobike show. It’s hard to believe, but now both Eurobike and Interbike are only 3 months away! Perhaps the star of Eurobike for DT Swiss will be the new RRC carbon aero wheel line up, which we can’t show you, other than the sneak peek above.

The RRC line up promises to have a high performance carbon braking surface, innovative hub and spoke design, along with outstanding aerodynamics. We will just have to wait and see.

While details are slim on the RRCs, we have plenty of detail on some new goods in both the wheel and suspension department for 2012, including more love for 29rs with both wheels and forks. Plus, if you have been dying to get a hold of
