Who's thinking of going to this then? I reckon I might be tempted...

I WAS there! Star purchase: Blue leather Christophe toe straps for my Viscount Aerospace Pro. Still needed: Lear Jet.

There was a titanium Litespeed on one of the stands, which is about the most exotic bike related thng I can think of. In the flesh it looked smaller than I'd expected, which is a bit daft of me I know, but I kind of expected it to be about 8ft tall - you know, somehow bigger than a normal bike - and maybe rocket powered.

Anyone else see or buy anything that they're chuffed with?

Yeah came home with a flite, a present for mr_ship and a complete bike :oops:
Met up with Drystonepaul (Kid in a sweetshop), KINGCUTTER (Lovejoy) and oldned (Flanders). I believe slimjoe was there too. Kept my money in my pocket this year, just the £77 spent in total.

Yes this would have been me also, I had to pike this one, as I have plans for my money (another build yes) and I know going here would have distracted my funds away.

Can we have details on what you managed to steel away for £77

Just £60 for the bike after a bit of haggling. It's a 1992 Gitane XT, its a bit scruffy but is very tasty with Columbus tubing, Mavic 231CD rims and almost completely M735 XT in groupset. Really quite pleased with myself about this one, its not a keeper though, i'll strip it for parts and flog on the bits I don't want to cover my £60 :wink:

Post subject:  Great day

Yep i was there :wink:

Thanks to oldned who today made me a very happy man with my purchase from him :wink: Also another true Retrobike gent.

I got some really great bits and pieces including some butterscotch wildgrippers and a ringle H20.

Cant wait for the next bike jumble!!

Well worth the trip for me too. Set myself a £50 limit but ended up borrowing another fiver off Sinnett, but could've easily spent a hell of a lot more.

Picked up a nice 1989 Deore rear mech, a Flite Trans Alpe, some XT M737 spuds, a new seatpost, a chainring, an SPD collar tool, puncture repair patches and an XT sharkfin. But I still keep finding stuff in my pockets too.

Plenty of really nice/interesting/grubby stuff to be had though. I got there well after the doors opened but there was still plenty of stuff to rummage through.

I had to give the two NOS XTR M950 chainsets a miss though.

If anyone wants those chainsets, contact Craig at Ride-On cycles Rawtenstall.

Sounds like you guys got some nice gear. I couldn't get down as i was out looking for a new motor. Anybody treated me to a gift ?? :lol:

Sounds like it might be worth a trip up to the next ! I went to the Bristol bike jumble yesterday and I picked up was a pair of thumbs for £20 , the rest was modern and fixie stuff :?

I wish I could've stayed longer and spent more. I did have to walk away from a NOS Saracen seatpost with the 89-91 decal on it.

I just couldn't justify spending £10 on a part for my scruffy £16 Sahara.

I've suggested that maybe we put a display on next year, after all almost everybody there is looking for old parts for their old bikes.

That sounds like a great idea. Retro bike would be a perfect fit really - there were odds and ends of modern stuff, but really the junble was al about the kind of bikes that make the forum so great.

Fell ill and couldn't make it.

A bit disappointed as I'd been looking forward to it, but there you go.
