The London Bike Show is the UK’s leading exhibition for all things cycling. It doesn’t matter if you are a hardcore enthusiast, a casual commuter, or if you’re just bike curious, The London Bike show has a lot to offer everyone. This year marks their 10th Anniversary and so we have put together the ultimate guide for anyone who is planning on attending this year's show.
We will be showcasing our range of insurance rated bike locks at the event, including our latest innovative product the Litelok Flexi-U Silver. The Litelok Flexi-U Silver is the world’s first insurance rated, flexible U-lock and, unlike a rigid U-lock, is able to bend around large street furniture such as lamp posts and telegraph poles. We are giving people the opportunity to handle our locks, as well as try on the wearable versions before they purchase.
We are also running a bike lock amnesty, giving people the chance to exchange their old, tired bike locks for 25% off a new Litelok. This is a like for like exchange based on Sold Secure rating.
We’ll be at stand LB862 so make sure you come and say hello.
One of London's oldest bicycle manufacturers, and Litelok retailer, Condor Cycles, will be exhibiting five new models at London Bike Show this year. This will be the first time the bikes will be unleashed to the public and include new lightweight versions of their popular Fratello, a disc ready steel performance bike, the Super Acciaio and an overhaul to their gravel machine made from premium Columbus triple-butted steel.
Condor can be found on stand LB640.
Other brands exhibiting at the show include Cannondale, Hexr, Primal Wear, Cycling UK and many more. More information regarding what each brand will be showcasing will be made available closer to the time. If you’d like to see a list of all the brands attending the London Bike Show then click here.
Bike Test Track
You’ll be able to try out the latest bikes on a 300m indoor test track, free of charge. The brands that will be showcasing their latest bikes on the track have yet to be announced but last year they included the likes of Canyon, Ribble, Brompton Electric and ARCC.
The London Bike Show always invites inspiration, interesting guests to speak at these events. This year the headline speaker is renowned German sprinter André Greipel. Greipel is a 22-time grand tour stage winner and will be attending the event courtesy of Factor Bikes.
He will be at Factor Bike's stand meeting and greeting fans throughout the Friday, and he'll be the centre of a Q&A session on the Performance Theatre stage on the Saturday. This will certainly be an interesting insight into his racing life and not something to be missed.
If you’d like advice about bike maintenance or have a specific problem you need help with, then The Cytech Workshop will be here to help. The Cytech Workshop is staffed by experts who train the world’s professionals and will be helping people with their mechanical problems and answering queries throughout the event.
Cytech master technician, Jules Thrasher will also be holding tech demonstrations through the event. These will run multiple times each day and will give you the opportunity to ask questions and hopefully, you’ll gain the confidence to repair, and maintain your bikes at home.
