There was bike glamour on display last night (Wednesday 25th September) as Behind the Bikeshed in Marlborough Street held their second “Bike Porn Night“.
The family run bike shop ran the event last year to give local cyclists a chance to see the top end road and mountain bikes. Like last year’s event, this year’s was very well attended with staff from the three manufacturers also on hand with free help and advice.
Also on display was a replica of Vincenzo Nibali’s road frame.
With high end bikes on display from Giant, Specialized and Scott, the prices went up to a Specialized S-Works Roubaix at £8,000. Weighing in at just 7kg, this carbon road bike comes with electronic gear shifting and disc brakes and is for the serious road rider.
Owner Bernard Baker said “We would like to thank our three brands for helping us stage this event for the second time. We’re pleased the shop was busy with customers seeing these great bikes and because of the continued interest we’ll be sure to run it again next year.”
