The fast, the fat and the furious

Friday night, bank holiday beckoned with the sun was finally out, did we really want to go back indoors? Glad we did as Spin London proved to be a great night out. Housed in East London's Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane, it was an apt venue for a show of this kind. Downstairs the vibe was a new take on a tradition form - chrome, gold and fluro sat alongside subtle matt greys and the widest (fattest/phatest) tyres in existence. The emergence of 29 inch wheels on off-roaders with retro bars gained a lot of interest. An excellent and varied array of clothing and accessories gave the show an added dimension along with a pedal powered cinema.

On ground level cool 80's sounds accompanied a psychedelic light show and the ever-popular Rollapaluza provided a different form of entertainment from the exhibitors downstairs.
