Core Bike show: Shiny Road Bits

Following on from Koo-Bikes visit to the Core Bike Show , this week we have got lots of random shiny road bits… Keep checking back for more….!

New Fast Forward Wheels

New prototype carbon wheel from Fast Forward which the company is hoping to launch later in the year. Currently in tubular tyre form they weigh in at a svelte 1000 grams for the pair. The concept was to produce a lightweight aerodynamic carbon wheel with replaceable spokes. The spokes have aluminium threads at either end so that they can be screwed into to place, so if you break one in an accident you don’t have to scrap the wheel! The pro team Vacansoleil are currently testing them. The price is likely to be £3000 for the pair.

 

Cipollini RB1000

We never thought we’d describe former Italian pro sprint star Mario Cipollini as understated but we think that’s a fair description for this super stiff looking machine; the price is certainly not understated at £4400 for the frame and fork but you do get the headset and seatpost clamp with that!

Ritchey P29er

Many of the older mountain bikers will remember the classic Ritchey P21 etc frames from mtb pioneer Tom Ritchey; this is the company’s eagerly awaited venture into the world of the 29er. This frame brings the model right up-to-date with a classic 29er format but harking back to the old frames with its use of Ritchey Logic II steel tubing.

 

Avanti Chrono

Avanti is a big bike brand in the southern hemisphere and the company was displaying this wind slicing Chrono TT machine.

 

 

Cinelli Handlebars

Massive bling factor with these Cinelli Ram bars.

 

 

De Rosa

i-Ride were displaying the brand new De Rosa Protos frameset built-up with Campagnolo’s latest Campagnolo Record EPS electric groupset and Fulcrum Racing Speed XLR wheelset – very stealth. The frame weighs in at just 800g and looks very stealth – cost for the whole bike – around £13,000.

 

 

Merckx

If you’re looking for a for a bike that’s a little different from your everyone else’s in the amateur Peloton how about the Merckx range which begs to be ridden hard and fast from the home of the toughest classic’s riders.

 

Bont Chrono Shoe

The men in blazers at the UCI decided to ban these Bont Chrono TT shoes – “not approved as technical innovations under article 1.3.004.”….. yawn.

 

 

And here are a few other random bits that we thought stood out at the show…
