Now that Eurobike’s madness has died down, this week is comparatively light on launches, though there’s some Tour de France parts and neat apps & tech in the mix. I also found some really cool stories and tidbits to share in the Small Bites section at the bottom, I hope you’ll check them out.
We have the rest of the best from Eurobike, hi-tech new suspension & tuning, new MTBs from Ibis, Privateer & BH, impressive titanium work, a fancy truing stand, Chris King’s new old stock, new bikepacking gear from Nemo and Camelbak, and other interesting bits…like a “Digital Human” AI assistant for this year’s Tour de France!
Everyone launches stuff at Eurobike, so we have new bikes & gear (and prototypes!) from Felt, Merida, 3T, Litespeed, Look, Commençal, Exept, and Norco, plus a lot of new wheels and tires, and some other cool stuff!
SRAM finally gets a 12-speed mechanical group for drop bar bikes, plus an eMTB for kids, two more for adults, freeride MTBs, Classified’s internally geared hub gets new specs, new tires, and lots more!
Öhlins bounces some very unique XC suspension tech, Wilde adds a segmented steel fork, plus aero lights and handlebars and road shoes, carbon brake rotors, freeride-proof MTB wheels square off against pinch flats, a stronger compact cargo e-bike, a reusable helmet, and more cool tech bits.

This week we’ve got a more aggressive full suspension XC race bike than last week’s Pinarello & Cervelo models, two affordable “trail” e-mountain bikes, an ultra-aero track bike, and a lot of very interesting upgrades, add-ons, and hacks for gravel and mountain bikes.
This week we have new road wheels and tires from Chris King, Specialized and Vittoria, plus an all-road bike from Vitus, plus new XC full-sus bikes from Pinarello and Cervelo, Moots goes singlespeed, and Canyon drops in with a monster freeride eMTB! New tech from Suunto and Garmin, and cool bits and kits from Cedaero,…
It must be grand tour season because the TT stuff is starting to trickle out. And we’re getting lots of “special edition” eye candy from Colnago, Canyon, and Ridley, plus faster wheels and tires. But there’s also some weird bikepacking and kids bike stuff, new bags, and other goodies, too.
This week’s recap includes a few more of the best things I found at Sea Otter Classic, plus the usual launches. There’s a few road & gravel goodies, and a lot of mountain bike stuff, like the revamped GT Sensor, Project 321’s clever new hubs, PUSH’s upside-down fork, three things for shorter riders (and kids),…
