All the shiny stuff from Core

We went to Core, and this is what we saw... Click on an image caption to see the full-size pic.

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.

I liked the strange hairy Brooks saddle on the Brooks/Fizik stand and the fact that that prototype Quintana was actually made of wood!

Those Lezyne pumps were a work of art, I already have a request in for a track pump and a road drive pump!

yeah, 'twas mighty cool. pity you can't get one unless you're a top Brooks dealer... they wouldn't give us one. I did get a Fi:z'ik (or whatever) spirit level though, not much use for me as i have my saddle pointing slightly down. anyone want it? it's the perfect cyclist's DIY accessory...

Was some Nik Wash samples, oh, and of course lots of bits of Torq bar, Clif bar, etc etc.

I also liked the look of that Fizik Antares saddle, I even liked the bright orange of the test ones, that wouldn't stop me blagging one if that is the intention!

I assume, as I didn't notice the Nestle performance food stall...

 They probably secretly own all those sports nutrition brands… not really.

No, a lot of the distrubtors know that bike types like sweeties and they have bowls of them to give out - my kids like 'em even more though

when free food is being handed out. Although I did return to the fish and chips and mushy peas line a couple of times, followed by steamed sponge pudding and custard and then stilton and biscuits. Maybe my food radar was a little dulled by that point!

Unexpectedly chalked off another life first at CORE… never had mushy peas before, green aren't they? Deelicious too!
