I don't see a thread going so I thought it would be good to centralize all of the tech goodness that will come out of EB2014. Post any links, pics, and info that you may have here and hopefully its a good year for bike tech!

The THM booth has some sample claviculas and fibulas for me. Can someone pick them up for me. The staff at the booth will act aloof, but just give them "the nod" and take them and then post them to me. Cheers.

Some different pictures of the new Noah SL Aero.


Estimated weight of 980g for a size M.

Creating the F-tube design sounds interesting.

Ridley carries over some of the top-end aero tech into the SL, while cutting a bunch of weight and making it more friendly to the pro team race environment, in part by carrying over the chainstays and dropouts from the Helium SL. What comes over for aero benefits are their F-Tubing profiles and the F-SplitFork, while the frame does with standard brake mounting to aid servicing.

The F-Tubing’s main goal is to keep the air flowing directly over the tube’s exterior. Ridley claims that by inmolding grooves into the leading curves of their truncated NACA profiles, micro turbulence is created that allows a boundary layer of air to form and to ’stick’ to the tube, allowing a smooth laminar airflow hugging the profile and off the trailing edge. ... om-ridley/

Just saw the pics from the new Parlee range... damn! who wants to buy a Z5sl?

I don't know if I can support a company now engaging in that amount of ugly!

I thought nothing was uglier than those top tube stap on storage things people have on their bikes. Well congrats Parlee, you one upped them all by molding that ugly into your whole line.

I was going to say it looks just like the Pinarello F8 frame - I prefer the Fork on the ridley though...aesthetically speaking ;)

Or is everything starting to look like a BMC with the low down seat stays, or whoever they copied that off originally.

BMC does have a straight top tube....absolutally not like the 3 bikes.
F8, Cento SR and Ridley has arched top tube, lowered down tube with "integrated" fork..... these bikes looks very similar to each other....but definatelly not like BMC.
