In years past we've had threads here with links to galleries and stories for Eurobike. But there hasn't been a peep this year. Is that because there has been so much focus on e-bikes at Eurobike this year? Just a lack of interest? I know there was an Italian forum which used to get linked to every year, but I can't find it right now.

Just surprised that there has been minimal chat about the biggest show of the year.

Maybe if you put 2019 in the title we would be more interested in what's new this year ;) ...

"Oversized pulley wheel systems are typically thought of as a premium (and expensive) upgrade for the watt-obsessed few. Token has a feeling there may be demand for a Shimano-105-level upgrade, one that still offers a 19T lower pulley wheel, but does away with the carbon construction and ceramic bearings. The Shuriken will retail for USD$159."

All the fixie kids are gonna have OSPW systems now....
It really shows that the entire system is just a fashion statement. :smartass:

Or perhaps cos those who work in the trade no longer post on the forum as its been taken over by the raving loonies??

I just had a long conversation with my friend in Switzerland today who was at Eurobike giving a talk on stage about her ebike adventure from Zurich to Bejing. She wanted me to join her for part of it. We’ve toured the Swiss Alps, and South Island of New Zealand together but some of the areas she travelled through on this trip seemed a little too uh, adventurous for this pasty white Canadian. She asked me today if e-bikes were as big here as they are over there now. I haven’t been to Europe since the whole e-bike thing has become a “thing”. But I suspect it’s even more popular in Europe since so many more people use bikes as a real means of commuting and getting around than over here. At least that’s my impression. Would any of you say that’s probably a fair statement. There’s e-bikes everywhere in Seattle these days. And now scooters too. I couldn’t help but snap an iPhone pic of these four and the four scooters for hire.

there are a few things that caught my interest on this years products particularly due to the potential use I have for them.

1 - fully intergrated & internally cabled cockpit
I have been searching for an option to use on my Colnago Evo Disc frame and saw the ones below:

Token Box System - the response I got on this one was that it should be on a compatible headtube and there should be a hole on the steerer for the front cable to go in (not sure if mine has this without disassembly)

Deda Alanera DCR - no response from my query yet but my LBS said this will be available on December 2019 so I am keeping my hopes up

2 - Carbon Ti AXS compatible chainrings - got sad on this one since it is only going to work on non AXS cranks (ie bcd110) and not on actual SRAM AXS cranks like Force

I live in Reading, UK, a town to the west of London. There's one group of cyclists here who have taken to ebikes with gusto and that's Deliveroo food delivery riders. Nowadays they mostly seem to be on ghetto electric conversions, they sure don't seem limited by the legal 24kph max assistance speed. As for general cycle commuting, and it does happen here, I very rarely see an ebike commuter. I keep thinking it will happen though.

For some reason bikerumor and cyclingtips didn't say a single word about Deda 2020 line up
