Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre is hosting the 2012 Cycle Show this weekend. We went along for the trade-only day yesterday and went hunting for hidden gems among the obvious wares from Trek, Specialized and the other big boys.
Shows like this remind us how far the bike industry pendulum has swung back to skinny tyres in the last ten years. Today's shows may not be dominated by mountain bikes, but there was still plenty of fat tyre stuff to look at and we unearthed a few hidden gems by our well-known technique of desperately begging our mates to show us something we hadn't already seen.
Here's a few of them, and don't forget the gallery, where you'll find lots more.
