CSG UK’s Ride The Revolution in-house trade show has returned for a second year and, like last year, is being staged in the company HQ in Poole. 

300 bikes have been built up for the event, which takes a month to fit out.

The show is the first chance for dealers to order 2012 Cannondale, Wethepeople, Mongoose, Charge and GT bikes. US product managers from GT, Mongoose and Cannondale are in attendance.
