London Bike Show 2012: Final highlights from the show

OK, time to present out third and final roundup of products being exhibited at the London Bike Show last week.

Schwalbe are getting in on the 29er action and showed a good range of rubber in all the tread patterns that are popular with UK riders.

 

 

DeKerf are now being brought into the UK by Prestige Cycles, based in Hove, East Sussex
What better way to ensure nobody nicks your bike from the stand than to stick it in a cage!
Muvi have been around for about six years and produce this smart looking compact video camera. Full HD, decent battery life and a range of clever mounts are key selling points
Evoc produce some pretty cool bags, with many ideal for the travelling mountain biker. And to demonstrate their suitability for heading to the Alps, they had this cool stand setup like a mini airport!
Love these Easton bars finished in white
This tiny LED light from Exposure Lights is actually a new product in the company’s new venture into the diving market. This light, costing about £40, is fully waterproof and floats, and while not biking specific, we reckon it would be ideal to have stuffed in your hydration pack in case of an emergency, or just for walking around a field at a 24-hour race

 

 

MSC is a Spanish company that has added this aluminium 29er to their range

 

 

Planning to go abroad with your mountain bike this summer? We reckon Evoc’s clever bike bag must be one of the best out there

 

 

Magura will upgrading the Durin with a 15mm bolt-through. There’s a 29er version in the works too

 

 

Strada Handbuilt Wheels, a new company based down in West Sussex, had this carbon fibre 29er frame on their stand featuring a pair of their lovely wheels. There’s some carbon 29er wheels in the works, watch this space…
How short is your stem?

 

 

Magura’s lightest ever disc brake, the new MT8

 

 

Ever wondered what a Chris King hub looks like when you take a Dremmel to it?

 

 

Continental are supporting 29ers for 2012, with all of their range now available with a 29in option. These picture are all 29ers

 

 

Yes we know, these aren’t mountain bikes. But among the knobbly tyres were some truly stunning road bikes, and these caught our eye, and we knew we just had to share them with you

 

 

New labels for Green Oil’s range of lubricants and degreasers

 

 

This is the Rose Beefcake. It’s got a slack 64 degree head angle, 200mm of tracel form teh Fox RC2 coil shock, and a nicely put together 6000 series aluminium frame

 

 

Not to be ignored because of the company’s new 29er hardtails, the Whyte 146X is a cracking looking bike
You’ve got to be pretty special to get some Schwalbe development tyres, as that blue band on the tyre indicates
