Sheffield Cycle Show 2015

If you didn't turn up yesterday than you've missed out on a great bike show where many of Sheffield's bike retailers, manufacturers and related companies got together show you all the latest and greatest.

There was a busy schedule of presetntations throughout the day with experts on hand to discuss, training, bike fit, urban design for cycle inclusion and a host of other topics. Manufacturers including Planet X put on a good show of their latest products with offerings covering all segments of the cycling market from the latest road racing beauties to hand built steel frames that'll turn heads wherever you ride.

Retail space was mixed up with display space where you get hands on with new products, ask bike related questions and snap up some truly amazing bargains. There was plenty on hand to keep any avid cyclist interested. JEJames took a leaf out of our Rock'n'Roller' book and organized a roller racing event. Anyone could jump on and try and beat other riders to bag the top time over 250m. Of course with plenty of experience under our belts, we quickly set the fastest time and it remained unbeaten all day, ye ha!

Of course there were more prizes to be won. A trafic light track stand contest was run were riders (balancers) had to hold a bike in a track stand for as long as they could without going over the line or touching a foot down. Adam Turner from Andy Moore racing set the best time of the day with a time of over six minutes. That would you keep you up long enough to outlast any failed traffic light. We think he could have gone on even lomger but there was little chgance of anyone beating that time. For his efforts he won himself a pair of our new Planet X Pro Carbon, Vernice racing shoes, which we expect to see him sporting at his next race. well done Adam.

If you missed out of the show due to other commitments don't worry you can catch up with all our latest new bikes in either our Sheffield of Barnsley showrooms. You can even throw a leg over our new bikes and take them for a spin if you call in!

We'll be attending next year's show for sure it was a great day out and the perfect opportunity to meet like minded cyclists. If you can't wait until then come and see us at the NEC cycle show later this year. We'll have the full PlanetX and On-one line ups on display...
