We’re at the London Bike Show at the ExCel Centre today to see what shiny new stuff is around, and after a good od browse we've picked out some of the bikes that grabbed our attention. Check out the gallery above and scroll down for some of our top picks...
New stuff from Mango Bikes
Mango are under new ownership and have been reborn since going into liquidation last year, and the ethos of the new Mango is sticking to what they do best - namely colourful urban and singlespeed city bikes. This frame is actually supposed to be on their Level 2 single speed model, but was accidentally put together with gears so is a complete one-off! Mango's various steel and alloy commuters come in at impressive price points, with most of them coming in at under £500.
Team Sunweb Cervelo S5
We've got one in for test at the moment, but here is the Cervelo S5 in all its pro team glory. A full Dura-Ace groupset and deep rims and Team Sunweb colours add up to a super stunning rocket ship of a bike.
Another from Cervelo, this time the sequel to their barmy P5X tri bike. The P3X has a revamped front end that is supposed to be easier to adjust and pack for travelling, and it's also a bit less pricey than the P5X in its various builds.
Ribble CGR AL e
Ribble have expanded their e-bike range with two new options that use the Ebikemotion hub-based motor. As with their 11kg SLe e-road bike, you wouldn't think the CGR AL e was an e-bike at first glance. Full story on eBikeTips.
Described by Rose themselves as "a marmite bike", the CPTL has a uniwue top tube design and has a belt drive for low maintenence simplicity. It also comes with mudguards, a built-in rear light, kickstand and a classy Brooks saddle with matching bar grips. This Retro model comes in at £2,729.
Cannondale's long-awaited aero road weapon dressed with Sram's new Red eTap AXS groupset and deep carbon rims... what's not to like? Our first ride review of the bike is here and you can read all about Sram's new 12 speed groupset here.
Coco-mat wooden bikes
And now for something completely different... these wooden bikes from Coco-mat are really surprisingly light, with the two-speed version coming in at just 17kg. They also come in 7 speed, and there's an e-version of their Odysseus too.
If you fancy going to the London Bike Show over the weekend head over to their website to pick up tickets for £10.
After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He joined road.cc in 2017, having previously worked for 220 Triathlon magazine. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
