Well there is not much to say about all the people from this list that were there yesterday. A lot of familiar faces that as always were very personable and great to chat with. One name missed was Matt Baumann from NYC, hope I spelled it right.

It was a bit strange this year. A lot of people and a good amount of bike stuff. I say it was split between Road and MTB this year. Had I been in the market there was a lot of great MTB stuff and bikes at crazy low prices. The road stuff was strange in my view also. The bikes or components were either priced really high or really low. That Jack Taylor in my size kept calling to me but I had to pull myself away several times. The price for that bike was so tempting and its condition was also a big draw. I am glad it found a home and it was not mine. It was definately a buyers market yesterday.

There were several contemporary road bikes that were very reasonable also. At the end of the show you could have pretty much what you wanted at a below a reasonable offer. Great show but I still like the older venue at Westminster better than this new one.
