With so much coverage from Jeff Lockwood featuring things like the Hispania Barrizal, built with Columbus XLR8R Scandium and Zirconium Triple Butted, to Merida’s Cyclocross Carbon Team Bike, featuring SRAM/Avid disc brakes, the all-carbon rig utilizes internal cable routing and sports a 7.7 kilogram weight. Also included were new bits of gear, ranging from a new must-have tool for the season, Campagnolo’s new cyclocross offerings, quite a few tires and, of course, more bikes.

There were two more bikes of note, and Ken Bloomer sent us some specs and photos of even more bikes to lust after. The first is the Firefly Ti Cross with an Enve tapered fork. It features Campa Record 11, Chris King R45 Campa hubs with Enve 45 rims and a custom internal cable routing carbon stem. It’s total weight? A mere 6.5 kg.

Also highlighted at Eurobike was the Crema Cycles Rasenmaeher disc cross bike. This slightly heavier model is one of the first to integrate disc brakes into a cyclocross bike, something that we’re sure to see more of in the future. The bike features a steel frame with a 3T  carbon disc fork, Record 11 and Avid Mechanical Disc brakes, for a total weight of 8.7 kg.
