Anything new from Mavic? I thought I saw some pics of a new rim shape a few weeks back

Considering the current aero road bar offerings bontrager@220ish, 3t aerotundo ltd @ 190ish and enve SES @ 250ish i would say they are not worth it at all. I had the bontrager xxx aero and it was great but the size of these bar tops is just overboard and they do not look comfortable.

I don't know how much that stem covering adds in aero advantage (1watt savings at 30mph i bet) but it would certainly add headaches when using any sort of multitool.

Not much more headache than working around a garmin out front mount paired with something like a Zipp stem.

I just went to the SL70 aero bar and I think the tops are fantastic. A lot more comfortable to rest my forearms (even unwrapped) than the Ergonova they replace (which were wrapped). That said, I think the Cervelo bar looks pretty cool and for my usage preference - it would work out pretty well.

Can anyone attending EuroBike find out some more about the FSA direct mount brakes? They are on the new De Rosa King XS, but information is thin on the ground on the internet at the moment.

I ran passed Mavic boot quite quickly I don't think there are much of anything new apart from these shoes. I haven't seen the Ksyrium disc.

And I must admit, the De Rosa king is phenomenal (the looks anyway).

Will find out about FSA DM Brakes today. I haven't seen their boot yet.

Also POC clothing line is amazing. The fabrics used are innovative, and feel pretty nich to touch. They also have one of the best boot in the event.

Saw new Northwave shoes in a video (on road.cc I think) and love these single dial side closure that leaves the dimpled top smooth like the bont zero+.

Sad news on the FSA direct mount brake, it looks like we will be waiting until 2016 to see it. It does look pretty aero but unlikely that the weight will be reasonable.

Nothing really all that amazing at Eurobike, maybe Interbike will be great this year or its an off-year.

Discs on a set of Lightweights on this Z5 SL from the Parlee booth. Said to be "one of only two sets in existence."

hong fu has been going to interbike for probably close to 5yrs now

not too impressed with anything I've seen so far.

altho i must say i don't really mind the looks of the hunchbacked parlees, better than a lot of aero bikes from other manufacturers atmo
