Eurobike 2006 – Even more new bikes

Santa Cruz

A couple of changes to the Superlight and Juliana, in the shape of a revised swingarm, which should save a little weight.


The internal gearbox bike still looks as mad as ever, but it was the carbon I-Drive that took the ‘best-looking bike on the stand’ award. A massively fat down tube contrasts with the skinny rear stays, all the cables go inside the carbon tubes, and we want one.


The Anthem is turning out to one of the main highlights of 2006; I’ve certainly been loving the one we’ve got on test. Giant has plenty of experience weaving carbon fibre, and have applied its expertise in the material to both the Anthem and Trance for 2007. The head tube and seat tube area have been aggressively shaped, and in our books look great. The carbon extends to the swingarms and even the dropouts.

I must have one. New carbon Anthem

Trance gets the carbon treatment…

New paintjob for their top-flight carbon hardtail

Rocky Mountain

Lots of new paintjobs from Rocky, and they finally dip their toe into the world of fantastic plastic. The Element receives carbon seatstays while the ETS-X gets a full carbon swingarm.


The new Enduro SL isn’t the only exciting news from Specialized. Many of the bikes across the range have been tweaked and recieved new paintjobs. Talking of which, the SX Trails and Big Hits have some very challenging and daring paint jobs and decals.

A plethora of new colors for my fave saddle, the Toupe.
