Here's out latest gallery of bike pictures from CORE Bike featuring a good selection of the types of bikes that were on show from top end road machines from the likes of Time, De Rosa and Argon 18 and Ibis to, at the other end of the spectrum, some really interesting fixed and singlespeeds from Cinelli and US brands All City.
Somewhere in between we've got shots of the latest Long Haul Trucker from Surly - the bike for those contemplating ultra long distance rides and very classy looking Surly Pacer a steel road bike for those that want performance, but also comfort and classic looks – it put us in mind of the Charge Juicer Mid we recently reviewed, although it's been around longer. UK distributor Ison describes it as an 80s road bike re-made with modern angles and kit. Yep, that works for us.
Also worth checking out is Ison's own brand Light Blue fixed - which we saw at Eurobike, but hey it's beautiful and this is a later version and their Centenary bike with that massive gear – they had strong legs in the old days… or did they just run a 36T on the back?
Tomorrow we'll be bringing you more details on both the fixed and the road bikes in all their varieties, but for the moment simply feast your eyes on our Core - the bikes gallery. When you've finished there why not take a look at our Core kit gallery, we'll have plenty to tell you about the stuff in that too very soon. For the moment though here's some pics of lovely stuff from Rolf Prima, Token, Reynolds, Lezyne, Hope and Halo to name just some of what we've got.
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
