Bike Motion Benelux is one of Europe’s biggest consumer bike shows, held in the Dutch city of Utrecht from October 16-19. Gates Carbon Drive will again exhibit at the show, with a variety of belted models on display including the Activa Pro V from Rose, above. Read our previous post, “Sweet as a Rose,” to see the Rose line of belted models.

Also on display this weekend will be the Yukon Rohloff from Van Nicholas, below. Van Nicholas builds only titanium bikes, as featured in our post about the Dutch Titanium Bike Company. Scroll down to see some of the other cool bikes Gates will show in Utrecht.
