Sugar plum fairies, it's the deepest east end, so no dice.

I work in 'da Wharf so I'll head out one day after work.

No idea which yet.

I find I spend too much time looking at things on the net so it's good to see bike stuff in the flesh and feel it.

To be fair, this one is never as good, or as big, as the one at the NEC every October. This one is shared with three other shows, including the Boat show ffs, so don't expect test rides or kit or bikes for sale on the whole ...

I take it that you wouldn't travel to attend it? I've been in two minds whether or not to go but it's a four hour journey both ways in good weather and with the snow we currently have I think it's highly unlikely that I'll risk it. If as you say, it's not as good as the Birmingham show then I attend that one every year so I must be seeing all there is to see? I have an urge to travel to Bristol this year for Bespoked Bristol. It comes across as the UK equivalent to the NAHBS but we'll see... :D

No- because the location is a joke.

Not that big/good enough a show to justify Excel location which is a huge trek for much of the London cycling community right across the city.

Earls Court I went to twice as it was an easy drop-in event.
