    just got back had a great day, some nice stuff coming out of the guys there,
    loved chatting to the guys at Orange, really good chat, also saw the designs for the velodrome at Hope just brilliant
    then great news that BOS are being imported by Jungle and the KS stealth lev has an upgrade yay.

    some nice kit, the ti Thomson frame will be really nice, and i have to say the carbon salsa fat bike was one of the lightest bikes, incredible
    Rohloff, just pure joy discussing the manufacture and design,
    and the Rocky Mountain guys were just a pleasure to talk to and hope to dig with you guys soon.
    some great kit on display, the DVO forks lush
    and the x-fusion gold upside down forks soooo pimp

    just having a single malt to end the day

    anyone else with some show highlights

    KS Lev Integra ‘upgrade’ is a piece of plastic tubing (been using a section of Nokon since day 1) 😕
    Jungle will struggle with Bos just like TF,R53 and Surf Sales.
    Will talk shite with friends, take the piss out of the rest and get a day off work.

    the upgrade is not a piece of plastic its a totally new design mechanism, we will be sending all the ones that come with new bikes off for the upgrade before they go on sale.

    i would disagree with BOS, as Jungle are a far better organised company

    the ti Thomson frame will be really nice

    Went today to Core Bike (though got up a bit late), and didn’t have time to get to the Bike Place too (so going tomorrow). Highlight for me was probably the new NS Eccentric frame…

    Just beautiful think you’ll agree!

    New Marin FS bikes look nicer in the flesh than they do on paper/screen.

    Oh, and Hope are starting to offer their own rims on their wheelsets. These rims look to combine the best bits of both Stans (easy tubeless compatibility, width) with Mavic (Strength, durability and eyelets) for a weight only slightly more than the Stans so I’m told… For the same price too! Can’t wait.

    the ti Thomson frame will be really nice

    The guys at i-ride seemed to be going crazy over this for some reason! Looks nothing new to me. Straight tubes (quite probably plain gauge too), std BB shell, tight clearances for anything bigger than a 2.1″ tyre and didn’t look any different to a number of other half decent Ti frames. My Kinesis Sync for instance, has a whole host more features that make it instantly more appealing in my eye.

    and i have to say the carbon salsa fat bike was one of the lightest bikes, incredible

    Picked the Beargrease up and I was shocked! 😯 Genuinely… Wasn’t expecting it to be anything like as light as it was. Looks a whole lot of fun, but for a whole lot of cash to be fair.

    and the Rocky Mountain guys were just a pleasure to talk to and hope to dig with you guys soon.

    Making sure I chat to them tomorrow…

    ooh yes forgot about the NS that frame is lush, but then so were the Stantons
    yeah loving the HOPE rims and thick/thin chainrings
    and bottom bracket guide one of the most useful things at the show

    Good day today, lots to see, some nice kit I also thought the Marlin look nice in the flesh.
    Hope free-bes are ace
    Stans are doing a carbon 29″ rim.
    Lots of other stuff, I took load of pics I try and get up FTR face book tomorrow.

    Got to check out the Stanton’s today… VERY impressed! Especially the new Sherpa 29er that’s due for sale soon… In fact, was so impressed, have been in discussion with them about becoming a re-seller!
