Yorkshire bike show……anyone going for a peep?
I can only speak for myself, but no. Way to small venue and too few stands and those there has limited, boring stock. Hope the small businesses got something out of it.
Reynolds talk was interesting and I’ve never seen a fatbike in the flesh. I was a bit confused!Posted 4 years ago
Only for the reasons stated, others might get something out of it. Don’t want to tar it, just found it too small, limited and not very good, aside from the talk which was ok, but by then I’d already decided to bugger off.
Imagine a small flea market with a some belts and wallets made out of inner tubes, a fatbike stand, a couple of shop stands with average bikes and a couple of bespoke british stands, with one or two bikes.
Maybe Ton or anyone else can offer a more positive view.Posted 4 years agospacehopperSubscriber
also thought it was a bit pants.. small venue with not a lot of interest there really..
would have thought there would have been something from cotic or on-one there.. but it all seemed a bit more roadie biased
got a nice t-shirt from the drink tea ride bikes stand though..
The Akrigg talk tomorrow will be good i would have thought..
but it annoyingly clashes with the final nail biting smith vs atherton world cup tomorrow..Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriberdabble wrote:

This is my conundrum, so i’m gonna watch it on catch up and not look at twitter/ stw/ facebook. I’m just not sure how fun it will be knowing its not live.
If you can keep your head down and bookmark the link you should be OK, works the same you can just skip 50-20 out of the mens if you want.Posted 4 years agomeehajaMember
I paid my £5, wandered round, got somes stickers and a free drinks bottle. could ahve done with being a little more interactive, or a bit more interesting “stuff” for sale. A few stands with a nice bike on were not going to convince me to buy a nice bike. Riding a fat bike down the town hall steps would have been fun, soo many fixies but no track stand comp ir roller racing? TDF was limited to a welcome to yorkshire leaflet? Not even jerseys/t-shirts/maps.
bit of a missed opportunity tbh, but i guess it beats no bike show at allPosted 4 years agoMrSparkleMember
We went. 11/2 hr drive due to roadworks on M62. It was ok. Leeds is quite an interesting city fortunately plus they let 3 of us in for a fiver. Chris Acrigg walked past me apparently while I was looking at one of the stands. Doh. I would have congratulated him on that Spanish rooftop to lower level jump in that vid.Posted 4 years ago
