Quintana Roo CD 0.1 Triathlon Bike Wins Eurobike Gold

Quintana Roo has won a Eurobike Gold Award for its top-of-the-line CD 0.1 triathlon bike.  QR, who manufactures triathlon bikes exclusively, designed the CD 0.1 with an 18mm offset downtube toward the driveside.  The effect is that “dirty” air that normally gets tangled up in the drivetrain is rerouted to the smoother “cleaner” non-drive side to improve aerodynamics.

US MSRP for the frameset (frame, fork, headset, seatpost and brakes) is $3,399.  They’ll also offer two fully built models with full Dura-Ace or Ultegra.  They won an iF Design Eurobike Gold award for the design.

More big thanks to Carlton Reid from Quickrelease.tv for sharing his pics from Eurobike 2009.

Above, a prototype stem and handlebar from Shimano Pro for Cavendish in green, of course.  He ran this stem and bar in the Tour de France in a white on black color combo to fit better with Columbia-HTC colors.

EuroBike Recap – Part 1

A big thanks to Carlton Reid of Quickrelease.tv for sharing his pics from Eurobike with us!

Shown above is Kona’s new Electric Ute bicycle.  It forgoes the front disc brake for what appears to be a regenerative dynamo motor.  Other than that, the frame looks the same as their people-powered Ute.

2008 eurobike awards fixie headshok

It seems some IBD worries that Cannondale would get homogenized and dumbed down when they were purchased by Dorel (which owns Pacific Bikes aka: Walmart bikes) should be put to rest upon viewing this Bad Boy city bike using a modded headshok.  Click through “more” for other sweet bikes and gadgets that took home some awards…

Lightweight Partners w/ Rie:sel Design for Colorful, Graphical Meilenstein Wheels

Ligthweight_rieseldesign_custom_color_carbon_wheels

Rei:sel design is known for their high quality decal/wrap artwork on bicycles. We saw them at Eurobike last year and were pretty impressed with the seamless finish.

Now, they’ve partnered with fellow German brand Lightweight to create four different Meilenstein road wheels. The wheels are sent without any Lightweight logos or graphics on them directly to Rie:sel, then the appliqués are applied and sealed onto the rims. This process ensures long life and eliminates the opportunity for Lightweight’s logo to eventually show through. And it only adds 60g to the pair. Options are as follows, with descriptions directly from Lightweight:

  • MEILENSTEIN – EdelBunt: Have the heart to do it, leave all grey behind and show that you are showing up!
  • MEILENSTEIN – SchattenSeite: You stalk your enemies like a shade – and just pass them easily!
  • MEILENSTEIN – AspHalt: Don´t be surprised if the road behind you just cracks because of your sprint!
  • MEILENSTEIN – KopfStein: It´s a rough terrain but you overcome it easily!

The wheels are available directly through Rie:sel Design in both clincher and tubular versions.

SOC 14: First Look – FSA Teases All New Carbon MTB Prototype Wheels

FSA Carbon Mountain Bike Wheels SLK K-Force afterburner (1)

Just as their surprisingly good mountain bike brakes are beginning to ship, FSA is already showing their hand at their next project – wheels. Mountain bike wheels specifically, that will borrow from what Vision has learned with their Metron carbon wheel line for the road. Details were slim, but we do know that there will be K-Force Light, SLK, and Afterburner versions in “many axle and wheel size configurations.”

We got a sneak peek at the K-Force Light prototypes after the jump…

Chris King Precision Components pioneers #GRAVELVISION, a new methodology for contextualizing our components within the fast developing riding category of gravel grinding.

Take a moment and look around. Our world is not made solely of thick black tarmac and narrow winding trails. Between these two lives something, a treasure hiding in plain view. The wind knows this secret and it whispers a single word, a word that is echoed down the long straight stretches of forgotten roads, over under serviced potholes and across cracked and broken chip seal. That word is GRAVEL.

At Chris King Precision Components we listen to the words of the wind. This season we are proud to introduce a new way of looking at our product. That’s right, instead of spending long hours in development and testing we realized that with almost three decades of high quality component development infused into our current lineup what was needed wasn’t an entirely new product but rather a new way of looking at our existing product. We are calling this new perspective Gravel Vision.
