Eurobike 2013: Spot the bike

Think you know your bikes? Can you identify these eight TT bikes?

How well do you know your time trial bikes? To test you, we snapped a load of them at Eurobike last week and want to see if you can name the eight bikes on this page.

With our camera angles we haven't made it too easy (hopefully) and there might even be a hint of a pair of socks for anyone that does well. No promises though... If you want even more time trial bikes, be sure to check out our huge gallery of them here.

On-trend integrated brakes on this bike.

Slender seat tubes hugging the rear wheel are common on time trial bikes.

Integrated stems, recessed into the head tube, with internal cable routing is an increasingly common feature.

One thing most time trial bikes have in common is a very narrow appearance.

Bladed forks with a bayonet/hinge fixing to the main frame is something we see a lot of.

Some bikes go down the sharp angular shapes route, such as this example.

Brakes concealed within the frame is another common design feautre.

Good luck...

David worked on the tech team from 2012-2020. Previously he was editor of and before that staff writer at RCUK. He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds, and you can now find him over on his own YouTube channel David Arthur - Just Ride Bikes
