Amongst the bikes the two brands had on display were two Litespeed Archon's one a standard road model with some very far from standard paint job hand-done by German paint specialists Fromental; the other a custom frame fixed version with track end dropouts and some lush Paul Components, er components and an extended titanium seatpost.

Also on display was a very classic looking Cyrene and a Merlin Cielo. For fans of the off-road side of things there was also tricked out version of the Litespeed Sewanee and Unicoi.

We'll be posting a load more pics over the weekend with some in-depth captions too.
