With Eurobike now firmly cementing its status as the world's most important bicycle trade show, this year's 19th running will bring a record-setting 1,090 exhibitors, 35,000 dealers, and 1,500 journalists into a massive 100,000m2 (1.08m ft2) exhibition space in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

Kicking things off will be a one-day demo event in nearby Austria where we'll be able to ride firsthand some of the coming season's newest gear, followed by three days indoors and even a public day on Saturday. While most of the bigger companies have already unveiled their new wares at private events, most of the rest of the industry will be showing items off for the first time here and as always, we'll be sure to bring you full coverage of the hottest bikes, components, accessories and clothing you'll see in the coming months.

Looking for something in particular though? Along with a small army of Future Publishing staffers, Cyclingnews and BikeRadar technical editor James Huang will be on site with camera, laptop, smartphone, and notebook. Send requests directly to him on Twitter at @angryasian.

New! Video coverage from Eurobike can now be found on BikeRadar's exclusive Eurobike video page. Our video crew was hard at work combing the halls of Friedrichshafen, Germany to bring you 3-5 minute clips from 36 different companies.
