Shaft drive
This DKY Retro R capitalizes on classic lines and leather to create a cool town bike. But what really makes it cool… Photo: Dan Cavallari | VeloNews.com

Wahoo/Pioneer collaboration
Wahoo and Pioneer have teamed up to bring pedaling analytics to your Elemnt or Elemnt Bolt head unit. The firmware update is backwards compatible, and it’s free, so if you’ve already got a Wahoo head unit, you’ll just need to download the free update. The new collaboration offers users with a detailed analysis of pedaling forces, including left and right foot monitoring, force vector readouts that were previously only available on Pioneer head units, and post-ride analysis of your data on the “Cyclo-Sphere,” a cloud-based platform. The update will be available in October. Photo: Dan Cavallari | VeloNews.com
Motorized, and fat
This was a common theme at Interbike: motorized fat bikes. This one takes a unique turn with its size and foldability. So if your commute takes you on the train and then onto some wild, frozen terrain, this one’s for you. Photo: Dan Cavallari | VeloNews.com
New toolboxes
Park Tool has developed a few more options for mechanics. This large box features an extendable handle and wheels, much like a rolling suitcase. This one’s for the mechanic who doesn’t want to leave anything at home. Photo: Dan Cavallari | VeloNews.com
New toolboxes
For the more selective mechanic who still needs space but doesn’t need to bring the kitchen sink, Park redesigned its classic tool case to include swing-out panels and other organizational layout features. Photo: Dan Cavallari | VeloNews.com
Tiny tool
Park also showed off its new line of multitools. The aim was to make affordable tools that are still plenty durable, and offer just the bits you need and nothing you don’t. This MTC-10, for example, is ideal for roadies who just need the basics for quick adjustments roadside. Photo: Dan Cavallari | VeloNews.com

Merlin’s been absent from the bike game for quite a while, but the company’s back at it with a few titanium models made in Boulder, Colorado. This one’s called the Newsboy. Photo: Dan Cavallari | VeloNews.com
