Kinesis CX1

This is a brand new cross bike from Kinesis, which we know little about other than it’s literally rolled out straight from the factory and it’s called the CX1. The build here includes a Sram Rival 1x drivetrain.

Boardman URB and ASR bikes

Boardman Urb 8.4 - Copy.JPG

Boardman unveiled two new commuter-friendly prototypes, the URB with flat bars and the ASR steel-framed ASR. The URB 8.4 comes with a belt drive for super low-maintenance, and the block colours range from deep orange to a stealthy black. The steel ASR 8.9 on display comes with mudguards and is specced with Shimano 105.


Light Blue replica model

This fascinating bike really caught our eye, and is a replica of the fixed-wheel Light Blue bike made by John Albert Townsend in 1900 (original in the gallery) with a massive 100 tooth chainring at the front. It took a number of industry experts to source suitable parts and painstakingly get this reproduction built, which was overseen by Townsend’s great-grandson Lloyd of Ison distribution.


Canyon Roadlite urban bike

Road speed meets urban style on the Roadlite from Canyon, with DT Swiss hoops, a Sram 1x drivetrain and flat bars for comfort.


Reap road bike concept

Staffordshire-based Reap started out by designing a bespoke beam style tri bike (included in the gallery above) and now they’re showing of their first road concept at the Cycle Show. The shapes on this bike look super fast, and we can’t wait to try out a production model.  


KTM Revelator Lisse, 105 version

KTM’s revamped aero road bike was on display at Eurobike in it’s top-end guise, but the Elite version with Shimano 105 is priced at an affordable £2,599. The unusual ledge on the back remains, with a cool blue paintjob to finish.


Chris Froome's Vuelta-winning Dogma F10

We saw him conquer the Vuelta on it, now you can see it in the flesh at the Cycle Show. This is the Pinarello Dogma F10 that Chris Froome rode to victory at the Vuelta a Espana, with a signed red jersey nestled behind it to complete the victorious ensemble.




Arriving at in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.

I used to use one of those Light Blue's for my hill training sessions.

There was a Taiwanese prototype bar mount GPS Navigator with camera on show.
I have lost the cards that directed me to their website. Anybody give me a clue?
About the size of a Garmin 10xx with a lens at the front.
