We pound the halls of one of the UK's biggest trade-only shows to find new stuff...

We were at the CORE Bike show last week, and there were lots of things to see besides the awful carpets and the excellent buffet lunch. CORE Bike is one of the UK's premier trade-only shows, with a host of brands represented.

Anyway, there was cool stuff to be seen, and see it we did. Here's a roundup of some of out highlights of the show; everything from inner tubes to shoes to indoor trainers to e-road bikes. Enjoy!

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.
