Asia Bike 2012 saw 238 exhibitors from 14 countries showcase their wares last month.

10,481 trade visitors and 3,751 club and cycling enthusiasts attended the China-set show, as did 337 journalists.

Pitched as China’s first specialised exhibition for sports bikes and luxury bikes, as well as biking apparel and accessories, organiser Knut Jaeger enthused: “Very satisfied exhibitors, high-quality trade visitors – what more could you ask for?”

The sportiest and most expensive bicycles were shown off in a 'show within the show', worth a total of approximately six million RMB (or €750,000). Highlights included bicycles from Tour de France winner Pinarello, as well as BMC, Cervelo, Specialized, Times, Bergamont, Focus and Corratec, along with e-bikes from Smart and the folding König Ludwig bicycle from the Bavarian manufacturer M1 Sporttechnik. A bicycle from the New Zealand manufacturer Pearson took first place among the exotic specimens at the trade show, with a price tag of approximately 280,000 RMB (€35,000).

Other popular sections of the show included the forums and workshops, fashion show and four-hour Bike Endurance Race.

Asia Bike will return in 2013 after Eurobike, from September 19 to 22, 2013, in Nanjing.
