Here we present part three of our photo special from the 2010 Cycle Show at Earls Court, London.
The show opened its doors to the public on Friday morning, showcasing the latest bicycles, cycling products and services.
Although several of the major manufacturers have already aired their 2011 product ranges at shows such as Eurobike, the London show gives the manufacturers a chance to show off their latest products to the British public.
According to the organizers, bookings are 12% up on last year and who knows how many may spontaneously decide to go over the weekend? The more the merrier, we say.
We saw Quoc Pham at last year’s show and admired his exquisite traditional leather touring shoes. Now he has an SPD-soled version as well, with a more rugged sole. He’s on the Condor stand.
One word: Campagnolo. Standing like the mothership in the middle of the Cycle Show.
