Spin Ldn 2013

On Friday evening I went down to check out London’s first ever urban bicycle show, Spin Ldn. I thought I knew most brands of bicycle on sale in London but I was really in awe at the amount of different brands that were showcasing their products. I had a fabulous time looking at all the lovely bikes on sale. Here are  some of the highlights from the show.

We were entertained by some funky DJs and there was a bar serving beers and wine.

The first brand that I came across was Hood Bikes which are from Barcelona, these distinctive cruiser style bikes come in bold colours and are retailing for around 299 pounds.

This stunning racing bike by Festka Bikes  was turning heads for all the right reasons.

I also met the guys behind Mango Bikes, who were there to showcase their customized fixies. If you watched the BBC  program Beat the Boss you will remember the boys were seeking funds to start their business. Apparently they didn’t take the funding in the end from Innocent smoothie entrepreneur Richard |Reed and have gone solo with their idea.

As well as bicycle brands various companies were showcasing their fashionable bicycle accessories. I tried on a chic rain poncho by Otto.
