    Thumbs up FOA Show N Shine! - Saturday December 1st

    hey folks.

    ok, details are sparse, but thought we'd get this idea out there and let you all know to "save the date".

    after seeing the popularity of Pushies Galore, we're looking to run our own Bike Show and Shine in Melbourne, and maybe a swap meet on the same day (though unlikely to be a two day affair).

    food, drinks, coffee, music, prizes (there'll be a few different categories) and RAD times a'plenty.

    so start building if you've got something awesome in the works, start polishing if your pride and joy is covered in dust, or start scouring ebay if you need an excuse to be part of the fun.

    out of towners more than welcome, be great to see some of the sweet builds being finished in perth and brissie lately, and, as always, the sydney and adelaide crew aren't too far away!!

    like i said, details are a little thin, as we've only briefly brainstormed this at FOA HQ (not brenno and james' house), but we will let you know details as they come to hand.

    GET EXCITED.

    oh, if you have any specific questions about it all, or if you wanna be a sponsor, hit me up with a pm or email rolly@@@@@@nspbikes (dot) com [dot] ayoo. sweet.

    oh, probably worth mentioning, if you have any questions that i think are beneficial to the thread i'll add them in here.

    idea is to get the word out there, then once we have more details to announce we'll open it up for people to chat about.

    Hey folks, got a little bit of news about the Show n Shine:

    - Brunswick Cycling Club have agreed to let us use the Harrison Street Velodrome for the day. The kiosk will be open and the BBQ on.
    - Saint Cloud are on board.
    - Blane from Cargone Couriers has agreed to bring down the "stereo bike" for some tunes.
    - Treadlie will provide online pre and post articles and promo (unfortunately the timing means we'll miss the actual print edition for December, but there may be pics in the March issue).
    - Kumo Cycles are on board with some merch.
    - There's a flyer in the works.

    We'll announce more as it comes to hand, but things are happening!!

    Looks like it says "fine bicycles", thereby ruling out your vintage mtb. Soz H
