That yellow polo bike is stunning.
mmm … and two brakes one lever.

two brakes one lever, a sophisticated set up like the Honda system….or does it just lock everything up in one swift motion?
So many nice bikes, is there a website,/blog for this?

Is it just me or does this years show not have the WOW factor? Looks like lots of cheep bikes with £2k wheelsets? In previous years I’ve wanted everything! The only thing I like is the wooden bike (if its solid wood) and even that I think could look infinately better!
I’m hypothesising but I reckon thyere road BB7’s, and MTB levers?
 somehow in my head the 2:1 ratio of canti to v-brake pull meant you could run 2 brakes on one lever, but now I’m not so sure.
