EB15 Randoms: A little of everything from a Kid’s Fat Bike to a Posh e-Bike

There really is any kind of bike you can imagine for every possible rider type at Eurobike. We have been regularly filing reports on the bikes and gear we found wandering the halls for the last month and a half. As the week and our Eurobike coverage nears their ends, we’ve compiled a selection of bikes worthy of a look, even if they didn’t warrant a post of their own.

When we think of the first bikes from Early Rider, it’s bikes like the Trail Runner XL that come to mind. At 150£ the mother-of-all balance bikes gets an aluminum frame, massive 14×2.5″ rubber to roll over anything, and even a steering dampener/limiter to help out when the trail runs out. But Early Rider does a lot more in light and smart bikes to get kids pedaling and out riding too.

Come past the break to see more of the bigger Early Rider bikes, plus stand outs from Bergamont, Open, Silverback, and Lapierre…

Early Rider also does a series of belt drive bikes with both 16″ and 20″ wheels. The smaller 280£ bike gets one basic build, while the 20″ is available in a v-brake Urban3 version with slicks for 430£, a rigid mountain bike Trail 3 version with disc brakes for 480£, and a disc-brake mountain bike Trail 3S version with a 50mm Spinner Grind air fork for 580£.

While Bergamont has a full carbon frame and fork on their Prime CX Team bike, this base level Prime CX gets both an aluminum frame and fork. The two-sided low-rider rack mounts (inside and outside) also serve to clamp down the hydro front brake line for a secure setup. A Prime CX RD build uses the same alloy frame and fork for a full-on randonneur setup with racks, fenders, and a dynamo powered set of lights.

Silverback_Scoop-Quarter_20inch-kids-fat-bike Silverback_Scoop-Quarter_20inch-kids-fat-bike_Vee-tire-Mission-Command

Where else can you get a Shimano-equipped fat bike for 600€ than from Silverback. Sure, the Scoop Quarter has 20″ wheels and only comes in one frame size, but it still gets 4″ rubber (although it seems the XT derailleur was a show fluke as the spec mentions Sora 9sp). We get the feeling that a lot of kids would be pretty psyched about this bike. Plus, Silverback also offers the Scoop Half with 24×4″ tires and six more configurations with 26″ wheels and 4″ or 4.7″ tires.

Open_Path_Gravel-bike-monster-cross

We covered the introduction of the Open Path cyclocross/gravel bike back at Sea Otter and again here at Eurobike in it’s 27.5″ guise, but we couldn’t pass up one more shot of the cross build when we saw this one outside of the show taking a break in the orchards. This time it also sports a set of the new 3T Discus Team C35 carbon wheels that we anticipate getting a chance to test before the end of this month.

Liv first previewed the newest version of their aluminum Intrigue mountain bike back mid-summer. The new 27.5″ Intrigue SX is geared towards women’s enduro with the 140mm Maestro suspension getting paired with an adjustable travel 160mm Pike RCT3 Solo Air fork for added capability. The complete bike gets a SRAM X1 single setup, but the direct front derailleur mount adds the possibility for either a double setup or some other chain retention. The frame also includes ISCG mounts, which didn’t get much use on the shorter travel version of the bike, but adds flexibility for even more aggressive trail setups.

Designed in Austria and built across the border in Italy, Capo is building bikes stainless steel road and mountain bikes designed for on and off-road mountaineering. This 7000€ road Airo and the 8500€ mountain Zoom both get quick handling geometries tailored for climbing steep alpine roads and trails. Both bikes share similar tech, with thru-axles front and rear, fully internal routing, bead blasted finishes, and low-geared, wide-ranging Di2 mountain bike drivetrains to get up the steepest inclines.

Lapierre_Overvolt-Eden-Park_lifestyle-e-bike

Lapierre has put a lot of effort into developing high performance off-road e-bikes, but with this Overvolt Eden Park they are hitting out at the high-end urban lifestyle rider, as well. Building on a partnership with the Eden Park designer fashion retailer, the bike incorporates a healthy dose of warm leather accents and functional everyday details like full coverage fenders with integrated lighting.

Why oh why is the light under the guard? This means it’s not protected debris from the tyre, or indeed rubbing the tyre and the guard has to be fitted with a fugly gap?
Come on people, god is in the details and the rest of the bike looks pretty well executed.

I’ve been hopiing to see some new light placements on bikes. Something tucked in but useable.
But given the way that placement flares the front of the fender up… I’m w/ TheEndinFrench. Looks odd. Bit of freezing rain later and it’s a block of doom. But weather like that sure cuts down on riders anyway so maybe it’s not an issue.

And I like the new bikes but- between Endurance, Gravel, AnyRoad, Cross….. And whatever the heck else is out there that I can’t rememeber- What the crap is Off Road Mountaineering and please sweet Baby JeeeZeus tell me it’s not a new splinter of a niche.

@theendinfrench the rotation of the wheel means the grit will be hitting the light from behind. Still, I agree that it’s a weird placement. What’s more concerning is the limited coverage of the fenders – they just don’t extend far enough down on either wheel to be truly effective in keeping rain and gunk off the mech, off the rider and off of riders behind. It looks like a bike where little expense is being spared, so why not proper fenders?

Large diameter head tubes just do not look right on metallic road frames.

Jesus, I love those Early Rider bikes. If my income had another zero at the end, the kids would each have one. Soooooo freakin cool and well thought out.

The Kokua Jumper is a much better design with a sprung rear axle to absorb the up and down movement of the kid’s rear end as he/she hits the ground and puches. With this bike all you do is bounce on the seat and loose control. Both my kids were prolific glidders on their Jumper due to the design, both around 19-20 months old. They rode 20″ bikes at 3 yrs old and never had training wheels. This Early Rider looks cool but the design needs improvement.
