Great event, thanks for the organisation. Well worth the drive to ogle so much bike porn! :-D Wife has taken my credit card off me though! :-(

My pics from the show are up on Flickr in the Retrobike group:

Enjoy.

Thanks to whoever organised the day. Never saw so much purple and blue anodising in the same place... and so many super-clean tyres.

Fave bike, if I had to pick one, was the Manitou hardtail, whoever's that was.

Superb pics. Thanks for sharing. And Maxmudroom https://www.flickr.com/groups/retrobike/



Obviously I especially love the Fats. The Manitou and the Dean Ti, Yetis, Kleins, Pace, Bonty, Marin Ti FSR, Cannondale with the cartoon 8) Just like going back in time.

Hope there were no sad tales of pilfering bikes or stripped parts. How was the turnout of Joe public and their feedback on the event ?

Public feed back was great. I had some lovely idle chats to plenty of people passing by........some with stirred memories of youth, some who were just enjoying the spectacle of something different in their market square.....it seemed a raging success to be honest.......

Good times in Warwick - thanks to Tom and his supporters for inspiration and execution. Hope this becomes an annual gathering!

Popped over this morning with the wife and kids, unfortunately didn't get to hang around for the day... don't think it would've done my marriage any good having spent the day at the race track yesterday too.
Some great bikes on display, been reminiscing about building and working on all the nice stuff bitd... inspired to build something else now!
Only got to chat to a few people; hope to meet more of you in the future. Did send a fair few pics from my phone to my riding buddies around the world, so I know the events being talked about in the US, Canada, Austria and NZ ;)
Off to search for a Fat, yeti or Manitou now. Or maybe a Pace (I believe it was a gent called Ted from Stratford I was complimenting on the one he turned up on!)
Thanks again guys.

Great to put names to faces and see some really interesting metal today. Thanks Tom and John and all involved for the effort. Will be back next year. Bike of the day? The Mantis left the biggest impression on me!
