I'm thinking of cycling to the York one .... the only downside would be it would limit how much I could carry back!

Met slmracing on my way out there today, parking is easy and not a problem, (basically anywhere nearby or on the field)
Smallish area with 3 large tents, food tent to sit in if it's raining, some trails show, some bumpy bits for the young 'uns to have a ride over.

No idea what the auction was like as had walked in to york by then.
Plenty of clothes you could look through and people to talk to.
Small section of proper vintage bikes and some 'retro' mtb, though I debated how old his Raliehgt Summit was (claimed 1992, but I say probably 1991 or earlier as the RS1 forks are original to the bike.)
He has a funny pedalling push/push cahindrive on a bike.
I think it's circa 1995 from the look of the bike and the bits on it from a distance.
A proflex of course from that era.

Fibrax selling cheap canti/caliper/v blocks there
setup should be a bit different tomorrow, I assume the 'saddlebag sale' will take over on of the tents.
Though todays job of looking at the islabike and young'un having a test 'fit and tide' on one. Beinn 20 Large as still cannot ride and the 24 would be to difficult to learn on.


I should still be there tomorrow have a look around and I think you could do a stall if anyone wanted in the saddlebag (registration time is on the whats on.)

Good to see you Ben, I managed to get what I wanted for the right money, this event is geared more towards the road cyclist, nothing wrong with that but some of them need to learn some manners and try smiling occasionally, miserable gits, or are us rough and ready mountain bikers too friendly, Anyway we need to get out for a ride soon Ben do you have anything planned :)

Good to see you ben and thanks for the swop on the Mag21 steerer - it's perfect!

Bagged a few Shimano 600 goodies for the Bianchi and two pairs of reasonably tidy Onza clipless pedals for £2 for both pairs!

Well Happy...

Will probably do a stall next year!

I looked at the Onza pedals in the jumble.
I got a m900 headset minus bearings and crown (it all new still) for a couple of quid, a now dx band on top pull font mech for a few quid more.
some xt 737/8 hub set for less than a tenner and bearing all felt good, compact and 74 alu granny rings for a quid each...
and I guess some other things I'll have forgotten about when I look in the bag. It seemed a bit more relaxed around the site today.

then the afternoon in york again :)

If anyone wishes to put on local rides around these I'm sure a few of us jumble-ers (looks at marc2tone ;)) might come and join in.

I found this years York show disappointing,not much going on.Must have be the rain that put people off.It was a bit of a mud bath.Usually more going on.

Still managed to spend £30.00 though :lol:
