Just some general observations from the 1st day of the show.

-electric powered vehicles were on display in force: monocycles, skateboards, scooters, and of course ebikes including presence from Zeus Cycles, BESV, M1, Rad Rover and a host of others that are not considered mainstream brands. Even saw an enclosed 3-wheel ebike from Taiwan.

-Stromer ST2S was on display and has a tentative US ship date of April 2016

-Indoor test track devoted to e-bikes (very short track but nonetheless you could test ride Stromers, Haibikes, and others. At the time I was there, there were just a handful of folks taking rides.

I'll elaborate later..........

Thanks for the updates! You're right on, saw a bunch of smaller newish brands there as well as the major players. Lots of smart phone app integration, cool lights, more streamlined polished products all around. I got some quick footage this afternoon, planning to go out again tomorrow. Feeling a bit better but still coughing quite a bit and not wanting to be contagious ;)

One more obvious observation. I probably saw 25 bikes on display both e and non that had Shimano's DI2 system on it. Seems like every bike vendor was showing electronic shifting.

Hope you feel better. Bummer being in LV with a cold. BTW, you are right, I saw some very interesting clothing with embedded lighting for visibility. I also spent some time looking at Tapei Bicycle Show Award winners booth. Some very interesting engineering and design.

I saw a Copenhagen Wheel bike in the ebike demo ride area. Did anyone ride the bike? Impressions?
