Every year there are a number of bike shows/jumbles/swaps that take place throughout the world. Some like the Eroica in Italy target the active riders of vinstage bikes, others target those searching out the odd, eccentric and particular for purchase (to sell). There are a few that target potential buyers and admirers of hand-built boutique frames and others that are for trade insiders. Later this month in the city of High Point North Carolina in the US, there will be a cycling "festival" or sorts, with a show that combines a bit of everything for cycling afficionados.

There will be the US national criterium championship:

The race is full of flat and often off-camber corners through a very tight winding circuit. Here is a video of the course:

There is then a whole display that will be dedicated to "art bikes" and bicycle art
with a spotlight this year on five well-known frame-builders, namely: Nick Crumpton, Mark DiNucci, Dario Pegoretti, Dave Wages and Peter Weigle. In case you are not familiar with teh builders, you can read more about them here: ... l#crumpton

Beyond the "art" show there will also be a special area dedicated to vintage and retrobikes (pre-1990) ... tival.html, including an indoor jumble. This dedicated display area for vintage bikes is attracting many high quality bikes. A first list of some of the bikes that have been promised for display is:

I will be there. I don't know what the asterisks stand for, I simply copied the list as I found it. I will bring my camera but you can be assured that others will do far greater justice to the bikes with their cameras :oops:

I have been asked to bring a few of my bikes (including a few of those listed) and to help Dario Pegoretti out with translations/interpretation where needed. If I can find room for more bikes, I might bring another half dozen that are not listed.
