The Cycle Show opened its doors today to the trade and press, allowing us to give you a sneak preview of the finery on display if you’re visiting the Birmingham NEC over the next three days.
We cast an eye over Condor’s beautiful new Super Acciaio road bike, checked out a new flip-flop hub from Hope, and acquainted ourselves with a certain time trial bike from a certain Italian manufacturer ridden by a certain Olympic time trial champion.
The RCUK Premium Road Bike test track opens tomorrow, giving visitors a chance to ride model year 2014 bikes from the likes of Condor, Cube, Fondriest, Rose, and Trek.
