I went on Sunday too. Some great bikes and some strange decisions on the awards I thought. Unless the likes of Saffron, Fagin etc. did not enter for the awards. I loved the Saffron disc braked fixed with the curvy seat tube. The bike is to be used in a race across Vietnam!!!!

My bike was being shown on the Paulus Quiros stand (not entered for the awards). Security stopped me as I was wheeling it out at the end of the show which was good. I had to spend a good few hours cleaning all the finger marks off the bike when I got home. That is what I like about this show, as a punter you can get up close and touch these works of art and talk to the artists about their creations.

FTFY :)


First ride was in the snow up Mountain road.
Second ride 200k in the ice at home. Ended up on my arse. (no one noticed the battle scars at Bespoked).
Third proper ride tonight 300k -1 temp forecast.
Looking forward to riding Ruby in the sunshine and warmth.
