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 – 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…

Cannondale’s E-Series “Performance Ergonomic” Bicycles to Debut at Eurobike


This has been on the rumor block for a while now, but we just received this press release and figured we’d pass it along:

PRESS RELEASE: Cannondale, leading brand of Cycling Sports Group (CSG) and part of Dorel Industries (TSX: DII.B, DII.A), will present its brand-new E-series for the first time at the Eurobike 2010. Cannondale has taken an entirely new approach to E-cycling, by setting standards with a number of technical innovations, including a new high-performance drive train that was developed in partnership with Bosch over the past two years to optimize Cannondale’s unique frame technology. The range starts with two Urban models focused on performance, ergonomics and aesthetics.

“Cannondale is relentlessly dedicated to creating the perfect riding experience. By focusing on intuitiveness, ergonomics, performance and aesthetics, the E-series provides consumers with increased mobility and a real car alternative“, said Bob Burbank, General Manager, Cannondale. “By partnering with Bosch to develop a truly visionary drive-train technology and opening up that technology to the industry, we’re paving a new mobility path for consumers and leading the way with a performance focused e-bike.”

2010 Focus Raven Takes GOLD Award At Eurobike


The 2010 Focus Raven was awarded the prestigious GOLD Award at the 2009 Eurobike. Of the 400 entries submitted by the international bicycle industry, 77 entries were honored – with only eight of them receiving a GOLD Award for outstanding achievements in design and innovation.

Jury’s assessment: “The biological styling of the purely presented frame concept in combination with a bold roughness and the advantages of using a material like carbon steel makes the Focus extremely attractive. The move back from 27 to 20 gears is inspired; it reduces the technology to the most essential and leaves more room for unbridled cycling fun.”
