    Pictures from the Taipei Bike Show

    I found these on Flickr tonight, and thought they'd be worth sharing. Lots of fixed and track stuff, and other color-coordinated components, so it's worth a look.

    My favorites include this wall of Brooks knock-off saddles.


    And this crazy-ass wheel, which can't possibly offer an aerodynamic advantage.

    Looks cheap, but clevah.



    I wonder how much of a quality-tradeoff there is to the Brooks knockoffs. Some look really good.

    They should be able to half the price of some of the more expensive Brooks. If they get the quality right and solid US distribution, I expect they'll sell a ton.

    i'm pretty sure that front wheel is aluminum. or there's a taiwanese 6 spoked version thats aluminum.

    also, they unveiled the aluminum Tange frame i've been in love with since last year.



    i'm gonna do what i can to finally get my hands on one.


    edit: nevermind, i'm an idiot and just realized that this is the carbon version. i'm not really with it today.

    i still want one..

    The sugino cogs are so going to develop play. How could hey have designed such shallow undulating "splines"? I mean, they had the Miche design to learn from and then they went and possibly made it worse.
    A really ambitious rider could get that to spin right around the carrier I think...

    i thought the same thing, but i've never seen the miches, or really heard much about problems with them. thought i was just being a know it all.

    jodypolk, that tange frame is as elusive as they come. i've only ever seen that concept photo, but the one hanging on the wall is the only picture of one i've seen in the wild.

    tange has a design website that offers no specs or contact information whatsoever, but it has real purdy pictures. I'm hoping EAI will take the reigns here and start distributing these. they were the ones that handled distro on the 85th anniversary frames, right?

    i'm willing to go to slightly unnecessary ends to get my hands on that business.
