Want some bike porn to peruse over? You've come to the right place, as above you'll find a bumper gallery of the nicest road race bikes we spotted at Eurobike 2019. Below are some of our highlights from the gallery...
The Italians were showing off their flagship aero road racer in various striking colourways, with this disc version complete with Campagnolo's mechanical Super Record groupset catching our eye the most. Expect to part with around £8,000 if you want one for yourself.
This colourway might divide opinion somewhat, but we're certainly a fan of Cervelo's S5 aero road machine. Muc-Off have matched the paint job with their pink valve cores on this special build, and it's completed with SRAM's 12 speed Red eTap AXS groupset.
This handmade beauty is courtesy of Rabbit Cycles, with framesets made out of their own blend of titanium they call 'Titan'. They do everything from the concept, to the tube butting through to the machining of parts such as the dropouts and bottom brackets, which they say allows them to choose from a wide range of tube sizes for the best ride feel.
Wilier always pull out the stops with their snazzy frames, and this Zero SLR in Total Direct Énergie colours is no different. FFWD carbon wheels and a Dura-Ace Di2 groupset complete the build.
We reviewed this bike back in May, but there's no harm in taking another look... Bianchi's updated disc endurance bike is a little more relaxed than a traditional race machine and offers a smoother ride, but is still responsive enough to snap into action when you want of course.
Ridley's all-round road racer features their more retro branding, and we particularly like this paint job with gold-painted forks, seatstays and chainstays. A full disc brake Dura-Ace groupset with Fulcrum carbon hoops completes the build.
This is (one of) the bikes rode to victory by young Egan Bernal at the Tour de France back in July. A full Dura-Ace Di2 groupset with Dura Ace wheels dress the yellow frameset, and it's signed by the man himself....
Arriving at road.cc 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 road.cc 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.
