Better this year than last I thought. Perhaps that was just me liking looking around more and lugging about less. Ah, the freedom of a pocket camera.
Of course neo-retro in abundance.
Good to see a few RB members dotted about.
Highlights for me...
*Deciding I think although Moots are cooler, I like Sevens more.
*Cotic Cross Bike. Bit too STW, but oh so achingly pretty.
*New Ibis Hakaluggi. Not anywhere as cool as the original, but very nice in a new kid of a way.
*Hed Rims VW Split with added cycling legend autographs.
*Cool new U.S.E lighting systems. Especially the 'blind you if you look at it' rear LED.
*Bike racks shaped like cows grazing.
*The do it yourself headbadge. Change it as often as you (me) change your socks.
Lowlights in no particular order...
*Shimano running out of bags 30 secs before I got there.
*Pashley running out of bags 30 secs before I got there.
*Pondering if too many people will rush to buy a Cotic CX bike rendering it less cool everytime you pass one on the hills.
*Lack of free cake in the press lounge. Been credit crunched just like everything else. Doom.
