London Bike Show 2017 preview - Pinarello, Cannondale, Look, Boardman, Giant, Rose, FLatB and many more

A roundup of some of the products you'll find at this year's London Bike Show...

It’s that time again, the London Bike Show is practically upon us so we’re taking a look at some of the things you’ll see if you head to Excel London between the 16th and 19th of February.

With a ticket to any of the shows giving access to all of the shows with special family rates available (not to mention under 8’s going free) it looks like a great way to see lots of very nice bikes and kit, all in one room.

There's quite a few guest speakers as well. Sir Chris Hoy and Dame Sarah Storey will be giving advice whilst Shanaze Reade will be coaching BMX on a mini banked racing track.

A ticket to either the London Bike Show, Triathlon Show: London, the Outdoor Adventure & Camping Show or Oceans Festival will also gain visitors entry into the three other events which are running simultaneously.


Pinarello F10.jpg

The Pinarello F10 is the evolution of the F8. It's not been around for long, but it's already notched up a few wins courtesy of Team Sky. 

Be warned though, seeing one in the flesh might make you sell a kidney to buy one.  


UK distributor showcases the Look 765 HM

Look 765 HM.jpg

Zyrofisher will be at the show displaying the many ranges from their catalogue and they told us that the highlight of their stand will be the Look 765 HM Ultegra Di2 endurance bike that incorporates linen fibres between the carbon fibre layup for comfort.

We tested the 765 HM here a little while ago.



Boardman AIR Signature.jpg

The Boardman Air has many spec options, but this Signature edition features Dura Ace Di2, Enve rims and a price tag that just scrapes under £6k. 



Cannondale SuperSix.jpg

Cannondale have been updating their Supersix again. This, the BlackInc edition, comes in both rim and disc brake forms, with mechanical Dura Ace and an SISL2 crankset to save precious grammes.

Cannondale Cipollini Replica

More interestingly, they are bringing this! It's a 100% modern tech’ Cipollini replica bike utilising the Cannondale Evo carbon frame. Fitted with Spinergy's latest carbon wheel set in the famous yellow colour of the Saeco team and utilising modern day Campagnolo Super record group, in mechanical, of course. The bike also has a custom painted Fabric ALM saddle and an FSA one piece bar stem combo imitating the original Cinelli one piece set up Cipollini used.

If that's not enough. They've got the EC1 Cannondale Evo that they built for the Rouleur show. Cannondale have made some significant changes to it since, mainly the brakes have changed to the useable TRP Helen RS brakes. That has taken the bike from 5.6 to only 6kg, but it now has functional brakes, always a bonus.
The frame was custom painted by Fat Creations in the colours of the EC1 Collective, a City Of London based cycling club. The bike features a unique 1x set up with Sram’s Etap rear derailleur mated to Sram Blip shifters located on the inner side of the TRP brake levers. The ‘Blipbox’ is inside the down tube of the frame making a very clean look.
Other parts are Tune wheels, Clement 25mm tyres, Fabric ALM saddle and Hex bar tape, Schmolke bars, Enve seat post. The bike will be on the Fabric Stand at London.

Check out our review of the Evo Disc 



Giant Propel Advanced SL 0

This right here is the Propel Advanced SL 0 2017. It's the frame of choice for Team Giant-Sunweb sprinters and it's easy to see why. The SpeedControl SL brake system, an integrated vector seatpost and internal cable routing make this rather slippery indeed.

Matt took a look at the Propel Advanced 1 last year



Scott Addict Premium Disc

The Addict Premium Disc comes with all the great features of the Addict, but with the additional modulation of discs. An extremely lightweight HMX Carbon frame and fork, Shimano Dura-Ace Di2, Syncros Carbon components and Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes complete the bike.



Datatag UV.jpg

One of the main players in the cycle security marketplace is Datatag who offer a range of frame and component marking options to help deter thieves or to get a stolen bike back to its owner.

We’ve taken a look at their some of their UV Stealth Pro in the past and they'll be showing you, amongst others, the Cycle Pro system over the course of the weekend. A UV etched setup that is discrete on the bike so doesn’t spoil the look of your dream machine.

If you buy any of their systems at the show, or you are a current owner of one, then Datatag are giving away free UV keyring torches, all you need to do is provide your documents.


Stephen Roche takes to the stage

Stephen Roche 87.jpg

You’ll find him on the main stage on Thursday and Friday discussing all things cycling plus he’ll be on the stand of Stephen Roche Cycling Mallorca promoting the range of trips they offer.

There is also a special L’etape 87 event to celebrate that Triple Crown win.

They say it’s made from a new material called Enkayse and they believe it’s the only helmet to be manufactured in the UK.      




See.Sense are celebrating their third year at the London Bike Show where their team will be on hand to give live demos on how their well received Icon light works.

We were certainly impressed with it when we reviewed it here.

On top of all of that they are also giving away a huge competition prize to the tune of around £855 which includes a Vitus bike and various other accessories.

You may have seen our piece about the LED covered Lumos helmet winning the prestigious Beazley Designs of the Year Award for Transportation and you’ll be able to see it in the flesh at the show.

Incorporating front, rear LED’s and indicators the Lumos is designed to make you stand out in the traffic especially for those urban commuters. The lights react to the rider’s speed and the indicators are controlled by a wireless handlebar button.


Parcours Wheels

Parcours wheels.jpg

We ran a piece about Parcours back in august last year when they launched their first three wheelsets. We tested the 38mm deep Grimpeur too and were pretty impressed with them for carbon fibre wheels at a sensible price, the ethos behind Parcours.

At the show they’ll be launching a new rear disc wheel for time triallist’s and triathlete’s.

Also on the stand will be the stunning looking thedomestiquecc Aprire #projectBAAW bike which is a showcase for UK based companies in terms of components.

You can even be measured for your own custom insoles too, something we’ll be popping along to have a go at to see if we can get some in for review.


Tabor Saddles

Tabor saddles have been hand manufacturing leather saddles in Portugal since 1965. They are aimed more at the traditional end of the market.The range may be small but if you like your saddle sprung loaded then you have to admit they are a thing of beauty.


Fat Lad at the Back


Fat Lad at the Back was started to create apparel for the larger cyclist focusing on what they term, “Proper manly man sizes.”

The brand has grown over the years to include a women’s range meaning it now caters for pretty much anyone who wants to ride a bike and enjoy it regardless of shape or size.     


As far as 2017 goes FLAB’s ranges are built around a central theme of mix and match pieces of kit focusing on vibrant colours with women’s range consisting of floral and geometric patterns.


The men’s range has been extended with more colour options being added to the Stealth line up plus various new designs being added to the Italian made entry and premium level products.


We’ll be back with a full round up the show once we’ve been to take a look around. Ticket prices and opening times can be found on the London Bike Show website.

With 20 years of road cycling and over 150,000 miles in his legs it's safe to say Stu is happiest when on the bike whatever the weather. Since writing his first review for back in 2009 he has also had a career in engineering including 3D-CAD design and product development, so has a real passion for all of the latest technology coming through in the industry but is also a sucker for a classic steel frame, skinny tyres, rim brakes and a damn good paintjob.
His fascination with gravel bikes is getting out of control too!
