Top 10 bicycle trends

I visited the Swedish bicycle/motorcycle/moped fair On Two Wheels today. Here’s their list of the top 10 bicycle trends (or whatever) in Sweden:

1. MTB was not a ”fly” and racing is hot again

2. Long races dominate the contests

3. Freeride

4. Dirt/BMX

5. Fully subdued (is that the word?)

6. Lighter accessories

7. High-tech clothing

8. Titan, carbon, magnesium, aluminium

9. 30-geared automatic gearbox

10. Athetes (our Swedish teams Team Crescent and Team Mälarenergi)

Sorry Ken, but I weren’t interested in those bikes that were on display, and I don’t find any further information. I might be oldfashioned, but I like to shift!

And I’m not so fond of the Smartbar by SRAM. It reminds me too much of a motorcycle.
