The 20th annual Taipei Bicycle Show is now underway. Masiguy posted some photos from Taiwan while Carlton Reid reports on trends for 2008 while also posting video highlights from the show.
According to Reid, the Topeak Jango and Giant City Storm concept bikes highlight designs that feature an integration of accessories on bikes. Currently, we buy lights, bells, cycle computers and other bike accessories with "universal" mounts. Bikes like the Jango and City Storm have these accessories integrated on the bike, with options designed for the bike similar to the way car buyers select options for their vehicles.
James writes quite about about the design of Giant's City Storm at his Bicycle Design blog.
