Not everything we saw at Eurobike was the height of good taste.
There's no denying that AX Lightness make some components to make weight weenies dribble out of the side of their mouths, but the custom artworker they'd invited to their stand to paint the bikes in real time - skilled though he was - certainly wasn't from the less-is-more school of bike design.
Cue some extraordinary paintjobs. Relax and enjoy!
