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

Xcite carbon fiber mountain bike suspension fork

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…

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.

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…
