why is it all the major brands are introducing new bikes on the first two weeks in july.
As already mentioned, Eurobike is next week, but my guess is that by moving up production cycles and having product on hand, will allow the big brands to better capitalize on christmas spending. In the past, product introductions at Eurobike/Interbike usually meant bikes would not be available until January/February by which time the average consumer was not really thinking about new bike purchases as the are most likely still reeling from holiday expenditures,
Michael - The Anaerobic Threshold is neither...

BMCs and a possible Allez disc will likely force their hands

Can't find any pictures on the madone SLR - anyone got any - my interest is piqued.
If there's an SLR version, could there also be a cheaper SL version coming out as well?

It's looking like a huge improvement of the previous generation though.
Info is embargoed until the 7th for Trek
Madone was already an ultimate racebike, so maybe you were talking about Venge?
Maybe 'huge' was a bit of an exagaration on my part :lol: It's more just a refinement of an already great bike. It is looking really good.

I think most designs were complete post TdF last year and then marketing dept has been waiting for UCI's approval of DB race use?

Would love to see updated Aeroad, if it's coming this year.
Anyone got any knowledge of Canyon's plans? The Aeroad is from 2014 isn't it, must be time for an update...
Yepp! I suppose next year!

Gonna have to seek my Redhook crit version if that’s the case.

Well, strangely absent is Cervelo with the S5 Disc. Unless they really have it under the radar ready to drop the bomb, looks like they'll be late to the party.
Wont be late.

Disc brake or not it's very exciting to see so many top bikes released at the same time.

I'd expect they'd want Cav on it at the Tour so they can market it with stage wins.

So, should see it this weekend, unless things are way off.

Cannondale has claimed that they've designed 'the fastest race bike possible' or something. What do my fellow armchair scientists think of that?

Ok, so today was slam ‘annondale day.

Who is next? Specialized showing big weight savings compared to Venge Vias? That would be easy considering the weight of all the proprietary cr*p they had on it...

I just would like to see a truly light aero bike... sub-900g frame, rim brakes (on the seatstays, please), smart cable routing (cleaning up the front end looks cool, but probably not worth the trouble and weight penalty)...

If Canyon makes an Aeroad “EVO”, I would definitely get one. Fuji is also promising a revamped sub 900g Transonic with no proprietary parts, and good aero.
