Hope to see some of you at the velodrome! I’m working for the organiser and will be there from set up to set down. Looks to be a cracker. I’ve got a free ticket for Friday preview, and one for any day over the weekend.
Have a feeling someone from here won the track session from the Mayhem strava comp, I’ll see you for sure!
First requests here gets the tickets.mick_rSubscriber
Say hi to Phil for me (Mick from Ironworks frames). I’m not exhibiting this year – Mrs is doing an mtb triathlon which also allows me a rare play in Dalby, so will be at wrong end of country 🙁
Looks a really interesting lineup and quite sad to be missing it.
Very nice of you to offer the spare tickets – from swapping comments on here I actually emailled you last year to see if you’d like a spare free ticket to the 2013 show (heard nothing then checked too late to discover I’d typed your email wrong……)Posted 3 years agobikebouyMember
^^ nope I’m happy it’s there too. Just up the road from the Appt so I’ll be taking the foldie and wearing Rapha.
I went over to SpinLDN at Brick Lane the other weekend and everyone there was looking forward to Bespoked in London. I guess, if it’s been well advertised, you’ll get a lot of folks itching to see some exceptional bike builders/artisans.
There will also be a lot of “normal” folk going over just because the park has been opened up, so you may get a lot of newly interest folk in there too.
I’m not going to compare Bristol with London for this show, but it’s nice it’s touring the country where lots of folks get the opportunity to view some exceptional bikes.
Can only be a good thing.
I’m there Saturday, I’ll be wearing a rose in my lapel for all those interested.. 😆Posted 3 years agoajantomMember
Another unfortunate example of everything eventually gravitating towards London and the SE.Posted 3 years ago
When all of the major bike shows are already held in London, why move this one there too?
Why not move it to somewhere that is actually more accessible and central, say Birmingham?
I enjoyed the last two years, but not enough to travel 4+ hours.mick_rSubscriber
I liked Bristol but can understand the move to London:-
Bristol venue not available
Bristol venue getting a bit small
Maybe more target customers with disposable income in London
Arguably easier to get to by train (Bristol is an expensive slow faff by train from the north).
There is never going to be a venue that suits everybody……Posted 3 years agoBlackhoundSubscriber
I understand Bristol was not available but it was a bit small because of its success somewhere else was needed. aybe it is par tof the Olympic legacy putting it on in Stratford but somewhere else would have been good.
I am still hopeful that it will move to Derby when the velodrome is finished this year. I can hope, but not holding my breath. This will at least unite the Northerners and Southerners who say it is to far away and not central enough!Posted 3 years agopaul78Member
Heading down on Friday to take a look and meet with friends.
The move from Bristol from London I think slightly favours me travelling from Newcastle .. then again its only once a year and its a pretty special show to gather up all the talent in one place so worth the trip.
We live in a relatively small country so nowhere is that far away 🙂
Blackhound, I fully support your hope for a Derby based show .. only because its closer not particularly because it would be in Derby 😉Posted 3 years ago
