I loved the '23 version and will go back. I made a weekend of it and glad I did — one day would not have been enough time to see everything.
Bring drinking water, there was no water fountain. I might bring a head-lamp, to better see certain things — the lighting in the venue was pretty dark. Comfy supportive shoes that won't twist your ankle when you step on the broken concrete in near darkness... OK I exaggerate, but the venue is not like a convention center, it's rough and dirty, but I liked it anyway.

They made and repaired ships there. It wasn't designed for conventions.

I too enjoyed the show and plan on heading back. I may help a buddy who plans on getting a booth for her saddles. I'm interested in seeing the industry side of the show. Hopefully it isn't unseasonably warm again.

Looking forward to going back. Many a great bike and frame on display. Was able to talk to a few builders and enjoyed the conversations. It was really hot with much smoke in the air. Not ideal, but not a deterrent.

Added to my calendar. Perhaps the good karma from the show will land another epic frame in my lap the day before it starts.

No wondering going on with me, I have a fabulous EM from OZ, they do not mess around, it would be fantastic, I have no doubt.

This is amazing, the paint is the best I have ever seen, I really should finish and ride it.
