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.
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.

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