Three exhibition dates – Bristol, Manchester and Surrey – planned from late September

Moda 2011 bike launch roadshows announced

Now into its second season of production, Eurobike has announced a series of road show dates for its Moda brand’s 2011 line launch. The first kicks off at the Ashton Court Mansion in Bristol, with dates at the National Cycling Centre, Manchester and the Lakeside International Hotel in Surrey to follow.

Eurobike MD Paul Stewart told BikeBiz: “The Moda bicycle range expands in to more areas with new models, including a dedicated winter and summer road bike at the £999 critical price point. Along with exciting titanium offerings in both road and MTB, following on from the success of the ‘Legato’ cyclo X bike now available in metallic red, we will offer a race-ready carbon fibre version with the ‘Opus’ model. The search for a frame supplier to work with for the titanium range was not taken lightly and we are delighted with the finished products.”

Several titanium builds will be carried by the distributor in the coming season, including a titanium tourer dubbed the Nocturne. Built with a typical British winter in mind, the bike will come with colour-matched mudguards and pannier rack eyes, meaning customers can easily turn the rig into an endurance machine. With all bikes rolling on American Classic wheels, as standard in the prior line, the 2011 line cuts no corners.

Masters added: “Also in the pursuit of lightweight exotica, we couldn’t resist producing a super sleek titanium hardtail MTB using the same elegant curves as the road bikes. At the roadshows we will present the ‘Solo’, a tight fast and uber-light cross-country rocket. The ‘Canon’ and ‘Encore’ remain our benchmark Carbon MTB bikes, benefiting from upgrades from SRAM component and Kore carbon finishing kits, as do ‘Rondo’ and ‘Presto’, our aluminium models. We look forward to seeing as many of our customers as possible.
