Being held at the Velodrome, website says opening to the public at 11.00, £2 entry fee or £1 for concessions.

I think this is quite a large one so could be well worth going.

Managed to get there in plenty of time and found that I was standing next to Kingcutter in the queue. Met Sinett177 and rc300 - and spent much to much money!

2 pairs of wheels - an 'Old Skool' time trial (LF Campag Record on GP4 tubular rims 28 spoke) and a 'New Skool' time trial (Shimano Ultegra clincher type with virtually no spokes!).
2 pairs of racing shorts (1 bib, 1 normal) brand new for £10
A bag of 13 inner tubes for £3 but all punctured - but still a bargain for spares IMHO
2 Michelin unused and wrapped Axial Sport 700c clinchers for £10
1 pair Cinelli bars £3
A new wrapped windproof and thermal training top £45 (less than half price)
New 8 speed KMC chain £5

I could have spent LOTS more including buying bikes and frames!

My friend sold 5 frames including 2 Hetchins to a Japanese guy who was taking them back to Japan - along with a complete Colnago he'd bought.

There were some excellent buys to be had, worth going next year if you can.

Really enjoyed it yesterday. Spent £250! But came away with a complete bike and a bag full of spares. Will look out for these in the future, thanks for the tip odd Ned.

I know I'm a bit peculiar - but not odd. Both halves are an identical match :)

Glad you and your wallet enjoyed themselves.

I think the bike was a steal at that price :wink:
