The 2012 Eurobike trade show started earlier today with a Demo Day in Ratzenried, Germany. The weather was spectacular and good times were had by all it seemed.

It was a busy day at Eurobike Demo Day.

The 2013 paint scheme of the Cervelo S5. But we think the one you order will be less dusty.

The Abus Bordo 6000 Ecolution lock smells a bit like nature because part of the outer layer is made with biodegradable materials.

It actually does makes sense that a company like Abus also offers helmets, but few are as stylish as this Cyclonaut one.

The Continental Speed King 2.2 RS is a new tire, but has a sibling in the cyclocross world called cyclocross speed.

Hard at work in front of the Continental booth.

The roads were packed with test riders.

The Vittoria booth offered wonderful looking and smelling pasta to their customers. Viva Italia.

Zipp introduced the Super 9 clincher disc here at Eurobike. It is apparently testing faster than the tubular version. BAM.

When in Rome ... David Ripley from Zipp is enjoying a Festwurst for lunch.

Very beautiful Ghisallo wooden rims.

A dusty Canyon Ultimate CF SLX demo bike waits for the next pilot. Well, someone was waiting for it as we grabbed it for a quick photo.

Lining up for Cannondale demo bikes

BMC had quite a few of the Timemachine TMR01 road models on hand and they were very popular.

Last minute adjustments on this Focus Mares cross bike.

There were tons of folks trying out these x-bionic cycling clothes and the green clad testers were seen everywhere.

This very hip shorts from Vaude seem to be popular too.

Good beer for thirsty Demo Day visitors from the Shimano crew.

Christopher Carlson from Trek looks like a satisfied customer.

The Eurobike show is ready for all situations.
