The most attention-grabbing products at Taipei Cycle… arguably

There are zillions of products on display, some fabulous, others… less so

Walk around the halls of Taipei Cycle and you'll see every bike, every part and every accessory you can imagine. Here are some of the ones that we just had to photograph...

Arguably, the Equinox MISS full carbon wheels from Gigantex Composite Technologies (above and main pic) are impractical, but we still want a set on an urban runaround simply for the Spiderman-esque looks.

Arguably, that’s a bit too Evel Knievel even for Evel Knievel.

Arguably, the rhinestone cyclist look probably isn’t going to catch on, but we might give it a go anyway.

Arguably, that’s a bit too pink, Princess.

Arguably, so is that.

Arguably, this bell is going to look out of place on my road bike, but it spins and everything.

Arguably, this is just what you need for your commuting bike. As long as you’re commuting to your job as a pimp.

Arguably, this isn’t what the Marxist revolutionary had in mind, but we still like it.

Arguably, the Baby Ride On is the coolest looking toddlers’ bike you’re ever likely to see.

Arguably, less is more.

Arguably, they owe a debt of gratitude to Paul Smith.

Arguably, a tandem tricycle with a solar powered battery mounted on the back is a niche too far... although it is in on-trend green.

Arguably, that could be confusing if you’re after a bike from a major US manufacturer.

Arguably, it's a fashion risk.

Arguably, you should always check...

...your spelling (sweet looking bike otherwise, huh?).

Arguably, they've not thought that through.

Arguably, that’s pretty cool, actually.

Arguably, if they did this in a road helmet, we’d consider it.

Arguably, they’re doing that on purpose.

Arguably, there’s too much going on here. 

Arguably, this would look better if it was darker. And without the pattern.

Arguably, any dream will do.
