It’s been a big week of new road bike launches, what with so many brands putting their latest rides under their teams for the Tour de France. And no one needs to head butt or elbow anyone to see them all, we’re posting everything, along with a few unannounced bikes and bits we found at the race.

A few of the highlights include the new bikes from Merida (here and here), Orbea, Chapter 2 and, if you can believe we need e-road and e-cyclocross bikes, Focus. Plenty more in the links below, too, with TdF finds marked as such.

There were several new mountain bikes, too, including a new 29er Santa Cruz Hightower and alloy Trek Procaliber hardtails with IsoSpeed. All the headlines below, each link opening in a new tab…
