I'm considering going to the Longridge Cycle Jumble.

What kind of size is it ? I'd have to travel quite a way, but I don't want to bother if it is only small.

I went to the Kidderminster Bike Jumble a couple of years back - is it a comparable size to that ?

Will there be many frames/bikes there or is it more just spares.

Ta v. much for any info.

Hello - I travelled about 50 miles to it a few years back & found it very good really - usual `village hall` size but full & some sellers outside. Might be worth a look as it`s well established. Usual traders will have scoured it for the best bits early, but there were lots of frame, bikes & bits to rummage through. Good luck if you go - can you pick up that `84 Colnago for me for £25 & post on please?!

The answer is YES to everything! Rusty bits which are probably of use to someone somewhere and dealers selling good quality near new (and occasionally NOS) items. Bikes, wheels, spares, clothing, tyres, tools, books and mags, memorabilia, road and MTB. Just take plenty of cash and be prepared to 'negotiate' - and enjoy it!

Couldnt believe how busy it was, managed to pick up a current Campagnolo cableset new & sealed for £14, Campagnolo 2007 sales brochure £1, and a used but has spruced up TA Coke Cola bottle for £1, and a retro NOS brand new sealed Cateye magnet, all in all a good day. Just didnt get the NOS Look delta pedals I was after.
