    eurobike14-cover650

    As the PEZ himself and our Technical Editor Charles are hard at work in the midst of Interbike let's step back to Eurobike for a moment for one final look at some of the best bikes and gear that were on display in Germany. Clothing from Castelli & Sportful, accessories from Ritchey, bikes from Lapierre, Eddy Merckx, GT and more.

    eurobike14-thebikes650

    Eurobike has so many beautiful bicycles that it's impossible to fit them all into one article - or two or even three for that matter! So following up from last week's look at some of the best that was on offer here's some more showbikes, 2015 models, daily riders and more to get you going on a Monday.

    eurobike14-accessories650

    Everyone knows that Eurobike has some of the hottest bikes in the world but it's also jam packed, wall to wall full of the latest and greatest accessories too. Here's a look at some of the best for 2015 from American Classic, LOOK, Fly 6, Saris, Powertap, Wahoo, BBB and more.

    Eurobike, it's the biggest bike show in the world and once again PEZ was there in Germany checking out all the latest gear. Today we have a closer look at some of the beautiful bikes on display from LOOK, Cinelli, Ridley, Canyon, Scappa, Caterham and more.

    divo-fulla650

    We saw the brand new DIVO marque at Sea Otter this Spring, and it impressed enough to warrant ink time in our report. While very few of the bikes actually exist I was lucky enough to ride one for several days while at the Tour de France's middle week in the Vosges and Alps mountains stages.

    verge650

    One look at the modern day pro peloton shows an abundance of skinsuits being used during standard road stages. What was unthinkable just a few years ago is now commonplace as riders look for the latest edge in aerodynamics and comfort. I recently put Verge's mid priced Triumph Carrera road/criterium skinsuit, through a long range test with some surprising results.

    14-sarto-energia-0

    Quick. Name the family-owned Italian manufacturer producing pro-race winning frames exclusively in Italy since the 1950’s. Colnago, Pinarello, De Rosa all probably come to mind but Sarto are the family (and brand) still exclusively producing in Italy for more than 50 years and I have their new custom Energia Disc.

    pioneer-Crank-closeup650

    Pioneer's first power meter set a new standard for on bike pedal stroke analysis, but for 2014 the whole system has been thoroughly re-engineered and re-envisioned, coming out with loads of improvements and features. PEZ took the new system through its paces and further explored its unique capabilities for pedaling analysis.

    look-795-650

    LOOK have a long history of innovation and their latest bike, the 795 Aerolight which was just launched is surely the most innovative bike yet from the French team. Aero, light, responsive and totally unique with its 11 patents this is a bike that has been designed as 'The best aero road bike ever made'. PEZ was there at the launch in Paris to check it out and then take it for a ride to put those claims to the test.

    devinci-leosl-full650

    Devinci Cycles' LEO SL is built for fast gran fondo style riding, has proven itself on the UCI pro circuit, and has been under some long term scrutiny at PEZ HQ - truth is I was having so much fun riding this bike, I was in no hurry to send it back. Here's a closer look.

    saris_glow5_650

    There are a lot of car racks out there, but the Solo Glow from Saris is unique in so many ways. The rack does what it says on the label; it carries one bike and it glows but as PEZ man Jordan Cheyne found out in this extensive test there's a lot more to it than just its hip design.

    14-silca-eolo-large

    Silca have been the benchmark inflation company for decades. Starting in 1917, they’ve made pumps and tools that have been in use for what seems to be the entire time… How many companies in cycling have been around long enough that you don’t remember “back when they started”? PEZ recently checked out their latest instant classic - the Eolo III Co2 Inflation Head.

    cipollini-rb1-650

    While Mario Cipollini’s bicycle brand has been proving itself at the ProTour level of racing for a few years now, they've only recently taken aim at the US market by signing Florida-based Speedbrands LLC as the new US distributor – who offered us a ride on Team Farnese Vino’s Francesco Chicchi’s personal 2013 race bike – the RB1000.

    14-lake-cx300-large

    The new CX300 shoe by Lake Cycling keeps up the product line changes and advances. It may be the perfect warm weather addition as temps (at least in Arizona) are already in the 90’s, and shoe ventilation goes from marketing pitch line to an absolute concern.

    bellwether14-optime650a

    If you haven't noticed, Bellwether Clothing is back, and their newest top-line cycling jersey & bibshorts are worth noticing. A resurgence in their R&D raised our eyebrows a couple years back and after some solid miles in their Optime kit, we remain impressed.
