Velofollies pays attention to the cycling history: it is 50 years ago that Eddy Merckx first Tour de France won, while 20 years ago is that the late Frank Vandenbroucke, liège-Bastogne-Liège won. The exhibition presents Merckx-cycling, while daughter Cameron Vandenbroucke is the poster of the thirteenth Velofollies-edition. There are, according to organiser Pieter Desmet four trends to look out for: “The electronics revolution continues with the batteries at just about any type of bike, which is perfectly integrated and easy to remove your bicycle and also not-powered to use. 2019 is also the year of the disc brakes, now also in the segment of road bike. We also offer disc brakes the possibility of the gravelbike, the youngest of the bikes, to develop. The gravelbike, a road bike with disc brakes and wider tyres, and is multi-deployable, and provides a response to the demand for more adventure. Finally, it is aerodynamics important in snelheidsfietsers and also MTB and gravelfietsen. What with integrated wiring and fluid tube shapes, the latest bikes have a more modern look.”
