The Cycle Show 09 in Earls Court, London from 9-11 October is the UK's biggest bicycle trade show.
The exhibitor list is well over the 150 mark, which means there will be hundreds of bike brands to check out over the three days of the show.
BikeRadar will be there on the trade day on 8 October to preview what's on display. Just click on the 'related links' on the right of this article to navigate through our coverage.
Most of the top bike companies will be there: Shimano, Campagnolo, FSA, Specialized, Scott and Cannondale (but no Trek and Giant), plus dozens of British bike brands and products that are popular in the UK.
