Inside Eurobike: New brakes, kids' dream bikes, folding helmets and ping-pong balls

Published August 29, 2012

FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany (BRAIN) — The first day of Eurobike's indoor trade show (following an outdoor demo on Tuesday) drew in thousands of retailers and media from around the world. In between a seemingly endless schedule of news conferences, BRAIN editors scouted out a few new finds around the Messe Friedrichshafen. 

As for White Lightning's blue ping-pong balls in the photo to the right ... What more does one really need to say? We think company owner Hank Kraus is serious about selling them.

Kraus said he identified a market niche after realizing that White Lightning's customers tend to relax and rehydrate after mountain bike rides with a good game of beer pong. 

Just in case Mr. Kraus is pulling our legs and engaging in some obscure German prank by showing us the beer-pong balls, we're also featuring his brand's new Bamboo Wipes in the gallery below.
