with out meaning to sound miserable, i have got really bored of the UK shows, nothing seems to have changed recently, the most promotion any manufacturer seems to come out with is that their product is 10 grams lighter this year etc.

the cycle show at the NEC was pretty dull, the london show i feel is more of the same but more specific to london cycling.


miserable sod.....


dunno, think johnny's got a point.

My god we are a bunch of grumpy old bastards!!!

Ticket was only a tenner, and as I only live about 30 minutes away from the excel, I thought what the hell!!!!

.....anyway it will be fun asking all these modern builders why my steel bike weighs less, rides better and will still be around in another 20 years when all their plastic bikes have snapped!!!!

There might be some freebies!!!

Ill be there on the 18th...... :wink:

Being an old grumpy bastard is the only thing that keeps me happy.

Well... that and watching Kirsty Allsop!! She's not allsop, she's all woman. I seem to have gone off topic sorry!
