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.

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 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…

New to the trail riding backpack market, Ion brings a perspective from making lightweight, breathable protection to their new Transom packs, which won a Eurobike award in their debut. Available in two versions to haul either 16 or 24 liters of gear, the Transom shifts between two load positions, one for climbing (left) and one for descending (right) that can be easily swapped back and forth in a matter of seconds offering the benefit of added ventilation or a stable, low center of gravity depending on which way the trail points.

Then from their mainstay clothing and protection side, Ion showed some nice new gloves, light padding updates, and a taste of an updated clothing line. Get the details on it all after the jump…

EB15: Schwalbe airs out world’s (almost) lightest inner tubes

Schwalbe Evolution Aerothan lightweight bicycle inner tubes

Perhaps in direct contrast to the new Fat Albert mountain bike and tubeless-ready road/cross gravel tire line up they showed off at Eurobike’s outdoor demo, Schwalbe kept their all-new Evolution Tubes under the shelter of the zeppelin hangers.

The tubes are made of a high tech thermoplastic material called Aerothan, which was co-developed with BASF. Not only are the tubes are extremely lightweight, they’re 100% recyclable. They’ve got some other great features, too, but they’re for disc brake wheels only…
