I would pay $5 to $15 depending what was on offer at the show.

For $5 I would not expect much, for $15 I would expect some free samples from promoters, eg water bottle or something. As well as discounts on products.

It is an opportunity to charge like a wounded bull for parking too :wink:

They should be allowed to get a parking refund if they buy a bike at the show :)

I'd pay $10 without blinking, and anything up from there depending on what the 'benefits' are. (And to clarify... benefits includes things like "being able to play with electronic dura-ace" and "seeing exotic bikes"... hell, if there was a custom Pegoretti dealer there I'd be tempted to buy on the spot ;)).

Cheers,
Leighton...

I'd say roughly $20 would be the max.

$15 and $20 admission prices like that would not even get you into a move.
What’s with these recumbent bicycles? Listen, buddy, if you wanna take a nap, lie down. If you wanna ride a bike, buy a bicycle

On the subject of shows , I see aswell as the Perth Car Show being cancelled , even the big two in Sydney & Melbourne will alternate years !

For Perth locals with cheap flights a small-scale show(by Taiwanese -Northern Asian standards) is on next week organised by the Italians EICMA in Singapore & for guys/gals interested in fat tyre stuff Tinker Juarez & Gary Fisher will be attendance.
