People often refer to "show bikes"

Where and when are the shows that display these bikes?

In Holland there is Stalen Ros each year. There is also an edition in Gent, Belgium nowadays.

Time for an inaugral Stalen Ros UK I think. I'm willing to do the leg work. So lets here some suggestions....

Is it something that could be done as part of a major bike jumble ?

There is this annual event, advertised on here every year, which has displays of classic machines and ephemera - the more the merrier!

That would be a great idea. Then we'll be able to put faces to silly usernames like............oh I dunno..........Bugloss, that's pretty stupid!

I'm up for the home county's. How about in your new soon to be opened bike shop Tel?

I'm really up for something like this.
Not sure what I could do to help but I know some good venues in Derby (which would make it quite central)?

Erm I don't think that'll be th emost glamorous location although I guess we could have it down on the harbour but even then nah I don't think so....

Be good to tie it in with a big jumble perhaps a north and south event i.e two in the year. Biggest jumbles I can think of are Herne Hill down here and Manchester Velo Drome up there.
