    Never been before, was hoping people’s opinions would give me some idea what to expect.

    Going Friday, and taking customers though it’s nothing to do with my line of work.
    Ones a clubman and has 5k to splurge out. Another one rode across America last year on a Surly he bought from a previous bike show.
    Looking forward to it.

    Planet X/On-One are going, and I’m off on Sunday, having got in from a week in China on the Saturday night. So that should be fun.

    We’ll have the new El Guapo 29 🙂

    I’m going Friday, didnt realise you could buy stuff, nor that planet x were there.

    My C Card will be quivering at road stuff i don’t have, and I bet you £50 there’s a shiny road bike promising to make me a fast as Mr schleck…. :-/

    I went last year. Wished I’d gone for a ride instead… which is what I’ll do this time.

    I wouldn’t get too excited to be honest, not really a bike show but some bike related stuff pushed into the corner.

    If you like massive millions of pounds boats, then you’ll love the event…

    Sorry to be a downer on it, this was just my experience of it last year. Thankfully I didn’t have to pay.

    Going with me boy, bike show, boat show and the outdoor show as well all good fun.

    Went last year with my dad we spent half the day jumping around 40million quids worth of boats, ace day loved it.

    It really isn’t a ‘bike show’. The entire south hall and one half of the north hall is taken up with boats and people walking around with jumpers wrapped around shoulders. Whats left of the other half of that hall is mainly outdoor stuff with some bike bits thrown in.

    Maybe it’s different this year. If you live in London and have nothing else to do then maybe worth a wander over. If you’re from further afield I really wouldn’t waste your money and time.

    No, but if Madison, On ONe / Planet X, MBUK, Bike radar an others are about they’ll be enough to look at.
