Thought I'd start a thread regarding Eurobike that is upcoming (August 29 - Sept 1). http://www.eurobike-show.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

For now all we can do is let loose on predictions some of us may have for the show and the upcoming year.....I'm actually of the opinion that we may not see a whole lot of surprises because the major component manufacturers have decided to release new items throughout the year versus all at one time (waiting until Taipei or Eurobike) like in the past.

> I'm sure we'll see more road/cross disk brakes - but what will be the overall sense about where this may be headed?
> More tweaks on the electronic groups?
> Power meters? (for instance the Garmin pedal.....)
> Anything new from our German friends at Lightweight?
> What will be the inovation highlight of the show?....(could it be kai-ming's seatpost!!!)
> Another lightweight showbike from Fairwheel Bikes?

I'm not one of the fortunate ones who will be able to attend - so hoping those that do can will supply all of us WW's some great pictures and insight once the show starts.

On my wish list is a new model of the Garmin Edge GPS computer, which they'll probably call the Garmin Edge 900. I want it to have a more readable screen than the 800, plus a number of additional data fields aimed more at the touring cyclist (the current model seems to be more geared towards the sport/fitness cyclist). Most of the data fields I want could be achieved with a firmware update for the current model, though (e.g., min and max temperature, max altitude, total ascent during current lap, average vertical ascent rate for current lap, etc.).

I've seen brief mentions/speculations that Garmin will have a new model out this year, and if they do then it's pretty certain that they'll show it at Eurobike, but they may have shelved this while all of their engineers try to solve the problems they're having with the power-measuring pedals - it seems like those may never get launched.

Heard some noise in some of the Spanish forums regarding a new crank based power meter...coming from a good source.

Do you mean the one from Rotor, which has been developed by AIP (MEP)?

AIP seems to sell that already for a while (3500 Euro?), but restricted:
"MEP-10A is currently on sale for biomechanical & specialized centers only."?

Just heard some reports that it was crank based and that info will be available (or that they'll be able to report) after Eurobike.

...and at the risk of highlighting the obvious, the Rotor design is in the crank arm, not the spider like SRM, Quarq, Power2Max etc.

Interesting to read this article from last year and see what has come to market, and what hasn't.... Garmin Vector :?

There's something from Rotor alright. Should be the lightest system on the market and it's two sided as well ;-)

Mario, is the Rotor offering basically what was described in http://www.bikeradar.com/news/article/e ... 012-31590/ ? Are they still planning both production and scientific versions?
