Eurobike Photo-Palooza: an Exclusive Sneak Peak at the Hottest Belt Drive Bikes Coming to Europe in 2013

  September 27, 2012

Attending Eurobike is a fascinating experience for bicyclists due to the massive size of the trade show and the sheer variety of bike models and brands. While the European bike market has been slower to adopt some trends such as 29er mountain bikes, Europe is ground zero for commuter and transportation bikes and the global boom in electric bikes. Another trend we spotted at Eurobike? Even more bike models and brands with Gates Carbon Drive instead of chains. Below are some of the many 2013 models that European bicyclists will be riding next year. Even the kids want one, as the little dude above showed in the Velotraum booth. Scroll down for an assortment of snapshots from the show.
