Five must see stands at the London Bike Show

Heading to the London Bike Show? Don't miss these five stands.

We get it, it's Valentine's weekend and there will be partner drama if you spend the entirety of your free time at the London Bike Show, so if you're planning on rushing around then be sure not to miss these five stands.

Boardman

Boardman has totally revamped the range for 2016. There's the Air Signature (that we have already featured here) but our favourites are the two titanium frames. The spec is sensible, the price reasonable and the paint finish unbelievable. Go check it out.

Enigma

Some stands are amazing because of one stand out bike, but the Enigma stand is brilliant because it's just packed with beautiful frames. The light-pink HSS is in the top three, but our favourite on the stand was the Elite Disc.

Lios (Velorution)

Strictly speaking, we're only of the drop-barred persuasion here at Cyclist but every now and then a flat-barred bike does come along and test our resolve. The Lios folding bike is the latest one to do so. Why? It's full carbon, it's got disc brakes, it's got deep-sectioned wheels - oh, and it folds in half. Currently in single-speed, or 8-speed hub gear, we hear a rumour there's a new drop-bar version in the pipeline.

Pinarello

It's rare that the London Bike Show goes by without something really stunning on the Pinarello stand. It was a close run thing between two bikes this year: a fluoro yellow Pinarello Gan or Bradley Wiggins F8, complete with a SRAM eTap groupset. I think you know which one won our hearts in the end.

Specialized

Specialized has drawn a good hand this year, with two simultaneous road World Champions on S-Works bikes. Peter Sagan's bike is the pick of the pair thanks to the ridiculous metal flake paintjob. Also on the stand is the S-Works Venge Vias under the hastag #aeroiseverything
