I missed out on the KCNC keyrings, bummer!
I enjoyed the show more than I thought I would, got chatting with loads of guys on the stalls and spent far too much on an (awesome) Exposure front light.
Highlights for me were meeting the custom fit guys at WyndyMilla who are based just down the road from me near Guildford and have a great new approach to made to measure cycling, and fab paint jobs.
Also loved the steel Colagno on display, and the Moots road and MTB's...luvverly.
Did anyone see those whacky bamboo framed bikes!? crazy but cool.
Impressed with the Van Nicholas bikes in the flesh too.
Was surprised to see almost a complete lack of belt driven bikes, infact I dont recall a single one.
I too missed out on the KCNC jockey wheel key ring, but did get a Koolstop brake pad key ring.
I saw the bamboo framed bikes, kinda whacky, do they have to protect them from beetles etc? Lots of electric bikes.
I saw several belt driven bikes, a loverly orange Moulton TSR2, a Trek Soho(?) somewhere and several others I noticed, but from a manufacturer I'm not sure who?
There seem to be several custom bike suppilers, I suppose it saves alot of hard work, but some seemed a little bit lowend, I didn't really stop at Windy Milla though.
Yes, the Van Nicholas frames looked great, saw the Exposure lights on the USE stand.
The product that made the biggest impresion on me was the MX style hand guards, great for the cold wet weather we'll going to be getting this winter?
There seemed to be some notable absences from my previous visit, but nice to see Peugoet back on the secene.
My journey back to Marylebone was a nightmare thanks to the District line and others having multipule problems, so much for letting the train take the strain
