I reckon I'll be part of the retro ride over there for once. The how is just over 3 weeks away and I still haven't started building up a bike for the show. I'll see how I go with it, and if it is done I'll be test riding it over, and I'm sure you'll like it Bruce.

If anyone does have red-white fade bar tape and a 34.9mm FD braze on adapter, let me know. Need them to complete the build.

I may have the adapter with Shimano logo in silver.

EDIT: New details. Anyone gonna ride over, or not really due to possible rain?

MINI SWAP MEET STALLS
Held this Saturday 25 March between 10am and 2pm, at Canterbury Velodrome, Tempe. Held in the lower ground meeting room (indoors only). Largely interstate and regional sellers. Grab a bargain. All welcome.
The 2017 Sydney Classic Bicycle Show is currently being re-scheduled and all swap meet stalls will return again.


Looks like the show is cancelled. Some talk of it being moved to April 1st or 8th, but nothing confirmed as of yet.

A Message from Sydney Classic Bicycle Show:

Due to incessant rain we regret to announce that the 2017 Sydney Classic Bicycle Show has been cancelled. The infield of the velodrome is saturarated and unusable and more rain is forecast for the coming days and for Saturday. All payments will be refunded.

We anticipate re-scheduling the event and will let you know when this happens.

Our sincere apologies, we have worked hard to make this event a success however we feel we have no alternative to cancellation due to the extreme weather that Sydney has seen this month.

All the best

Sydney Classic Bicycle Show Team

I am planning on riding over but will have my commuter, not the shogun. It is not too far out of my way to go past Frank Zions Reserve - Off Mitchell Rd as per last year. Happy to meet anyone there at 9:15am if they are interested - its a cruisy ride to the velodrome, less than 45 min.

I do not have a suitable wet weather bike currently, so I'm out for the ride over.

I will still be at the velodrome though.

I decided to not go to the classic show, but I did pick up a classic bike. Definitely a retro two wheeler.

Not eligible for the show or this forum as it is a 1973 Moto Guzzi 850 GT which was down at Moto Ciclio getting a blue slip and some work on the carbies.

I had forgotten how absolutely beautiful she is to ride (took me 3 years to rewire her...) and so any dry weekends might not be pedal powered for a while.

But if there's a retro ride on a wet day no problem.

We are into the fourth month of the year and we are yet to have a retro ride.

How about we lock something in for the Easter long weekend?

That potentially gives us:

Friday 14th

Saturday 15th

Sunday 16th

Monday 17th

Also, a good route. Failing that, a Windsor run could do the trick.

Sorry for the late response. Most likely will be heading out for a late morning ride, my usual loop that you see me do on Strava.

Quang and I have bought more bikes than ridden retro rides this year, so safe to say BNA is long overdue for a Sydney retro ride

Let's do one within the next couple of weekends. A leisurely stroll out to Windsor or a M7 looper perhaps?

alright, under 24 hrs notice but Quang and I will be riding tomorrow regardless of who comes. It will be this route:

https://www.strava.com/activities/931285975

Meet at the Plastic Bridge (formerly the Wooden Bridge) at Guildford.. you know the one. 7:30am

Coffee/food stop at Canley Vale as per usual. One of my regular cafe spots opened up there so decent espresso coffee is now available.

We'll be on new bikes - bring yours along too Bruce?

7:30? Urgh

Ah well I can do it. Not sure if I bring the new toy - it is definitely slower an I won't have the Rocket to hang out with.

OK, 730 am at The Bridge Formerly Known As Wooden.
