The Chemical Team are once again booking flights, hiring cars and tents to head over to Eurobike and explore what the world has to offer. Eurobike is a buzzing place, the most valuable part of Eurobike for us is the ability to meet new suppliers from Taiwan and China who specialise in frame manufacturing. Financially it just isn’t possible to head over to Taiwan everytime we want to meet a new supplier. So much of it is done on trust, but this gives us the perfect platform to meet new suppliers, talk about their processors and sample their products. It’s an exciting time of the year!
It also gives us the chance to see other bike brands, not just the ones we know about over here in the UK, but the ones we never hear about. Seeing these bikes online doesn’t do it justice, you need to get up close and see the details.
This year for the first time Eurobike has changed the date and format of the show. It is now a trade only B2B show which might change the tone of it a bit. Previously all the stands were designed to be as flashy and ‘WOW’ as possible which is the right approach for customers but professionals from the bike world aren’t so easily impressed. Watch this space – let’s see how much it changes from the previous years.

Picture from previous years
OUR FRAMES AND BIKES USE PARTS MANUFACTURED ALL OVER THE WORLD INCLUDING CHINA, TAIWAN, UK, FRANCE, INDONESIA AND PROBABLY A FEW OTHERS WE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW ABOUT. THE IMPORTANT BIT IS THAT THEY ARE ALL TESTED, DEVELOPED AND BUILT UP IN THE UK.
