Just starting to check out some of the coverage from Interbike. What are the best sources for design and tech coverage this year? Feel free to share links in the comments.

No shortage of 1990 style neon at Eurobike. Not sure I am ready, but my old Bolle Graffiti shades would totally be in style again.
Eurobike is the premier bicycle trade show in the world, with nearly every brand in the industry represented and practically every bike-related component product housed under one giant roof. In other words, it’s a dream come true for any cyclist with a passion for gear. Yet unless you’re one of the lucky few to make …

The Daga STROKE trike is an in house design project by Harry Uden and his team at Envision Incorporated, an industrial design consultancy in Yokohama, Japan. The electric assist tricycle was designed to serve a range of mobility needs including transport in factories, food service/delivery, or use as a courier vehicle. Read more about the project at . Also, be sure to check out the project gallery which includes development sketches, CAD drawings, renderings, and concept models of different configuarations of the trike- http://buff.ly/2ba7Nae
STROKE is the next phase of Envision's Daga project: products made from metal pipe. We're starting with an electric-powered trike.

A full size folder with a belt driven Alfine 11 hub, disc brakes, and an integrated (folding) rear rack. There is a lot to like about the Montague Bikes Allston.
Belt Drive & Internal Gear Hub. The Allston combines a Gates carbon belt drive with the Shimano Alfine 11 internal gear hub. Grease-less and virtually maintenance free, it's perfect for urban riding and can easily be stowed until your next ride.

PROJECT Y is a 12.96 kg (roughly 28.5 pound) e-mountainbike from Focus Bikes. I have been a longtime fan of transportation oriented e-bikes, but I was initially skeptical about electric mountain bikes for recreational use. There is no doubt that sport/performance focused e-bikes like this one are changing the image of the category though. If a bike like this gets new people riding, it's a good thing, right? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

This is a very interesting direction for Diamondback Bicycles. As I have mentioned before (http://buff.ly/2cPw3lY), triathletes are not afraid of innovation.
As a bike designer in a former life, I've always thought about a bike like this, but never had the wherewithal to make it.

Oskar Juhlin, designer of the IKEA Sladda bike, explains the goal of the project... to create a bike that is "as multi-functional as possible", and affordable for the many. So what are your thoughts on the 699 Euro price tag? Will it appeal to the masses (that blue ocean of current non-cyclists that we talk about from time- http://buff.ly/2bgmVXB)?

As much as I enjoy seeing the track bikes at Rio 2016, I really miss the innovative days before the Lugano Charter of 1996 (http://buff.ly/2buWx7S). The Project 96 Superbike shown below was developed by GT Bicycles and the US National Team for the 1996 games in Atlanta. After October of that year though, bikes like this one were no longer allowed in competition. That's a shame...20 years later, imagine what racing bikes might look like if it were not for the UCI's arbitrary equipment restrictions. #olympics #trackcycling #thanksfornothingUCI

A couple of "smart helmets" that are definitely geared toward the "blue ocean" of potential cyclists (http://buff.ly/28XLLHh)
