well it was OK...... fair bit of bling but not an enormous show.... most of the big names but surprisingly not a lot of stuff for sale, most people were pointing you towards their websites, at least you could try stuff and sort sizes though.....
in the middle of the outdoor expo and the boat stuff....

I'm going on Sunday. It's too late now but before Christmas you could convert about £6 worth of Clubcard vouchers into Boat Show tickets which also gets you into the Bike Show (and Outdoors show which I also want to go to). That's what I've done. Getting the train down from East Herts via Stratford so I'll be able to see a nearly complete Olympic Park as well.

So...... was it any better at the weekend...... when I was there there was very little for actual sale and you were constantly being directed to websites........ and it was a lot smaller  than I thought it would be.

according to the people on stands it was much busier on Saturday and to us it did get crowded at times. but more general public at the w/e - Thur/Fri were more the industry types.

I wasn't bothered by buying anything, just there for the bling and see what's what and check a few ideas out for a MTB bike build I'm working on.

have to say I didn't think it was as good as when it was an independent show at Earl's Court

bumped into OC and Shufflebunny on Sat which was good from a different perspective! OC - I'll PM you some time soon
