STORCK WILL be exhibiting at Core 2014 with the complete range of 2014 Storck road, MTBs and cycling gear. Since a new distribution deal in April 2013, only 30 to 40 bricks and mortar IBDs in the UK have been signed up – the brand won’t entertain the notion of internet only or mail order dealers.

been a stranger to excellent reviews either. The Storck Fascenario 0.6 was voted Best Bike in The World 2012, with the Fascenario 0.7 voted Best Bike in The World 2007, 2010 and 2011.

Mai and Kyle Casteel from Lezyne will attend the show. X-Fusion suspension has received press plaudits this year and has three new models and Upgrade is looking to sign more dealers up. Joel Smith will be flying in from the US to support the show. Pivot Cycles will be part of the main


display for Upgrade this year. Then new Mach6 27.5 enduro bike will be star of the show and positive early indications for the that super high-end VaultCX bike. Daniel Limburg from Pivot US will attend. ISM saddles will be new at Core this


year having started with Upgrade in the spring. Upgrade is keen to show the benefits of this original saddle design, not just for riders but for dealers’ business.


BBB WILL be a star at Windwave’s Core line-up, including the all-new BBB Patron case for iPhone, enabling riders to safely and securely mount their smartphone to their bike whilst retaining full functionality. Made from an impact resistant polycarbonate outer shell with a shock absorbing silicone insert, the Patron has been designed with a slim profile so can be used on or off the bike.

THE NEWLY amalgamated Freego Wisper will be re-launching the Birdy folding bike in the UK.


Small enough to fit into the boot of


any car, light enough to whisk on and off the train and performing as well as conventional bikes, Birdy is the iconic high-end folding bike from Riese & Muller, now available in the UK through the Freego Wisper Group. Here the Birdy is configured with Rolhoff 14 and Magura hydraulic brakes, a folding bike deigned for the serious cyclist.


Freego Wisper will also be showing the latest Riese and Muller offering, the Charger. In 2013 the nimble Riese & Muller Charger was the second electric bike ever to have won the coveted Gold Medal at Eurobike. This bike will be available to test ride on the new electric bike test circuit at Core. The company said: “It is not surprising with bikes of this quality now available that a reported 50 per cent of all cycle related revenue spent in Germany and Holland last year was on electric bikes.”
