    I might end up there Sunday. I have nothing to spend money on but have not been in a few years.

    I plan on going Sunday browsing at the new bikes and seeing if there's any deals on fat bikes.

    Parking would be $15 on-site or across the road at Ontario Place. Should be lots available.

    I found it just so so..not a lot of mountain biking stuff (not that I needed anything). A friend was looking for a fat bike but didn't find one he liked. There was a lot of road stuff though. Would of been a great place to buy a new road bike.

    I have similar review of the event. I went Sunday and it seemed very quiet at 10 am. By the time I left around 130 it was getting pretty busy. I was also looking for a fat bike but only low end spec models were available in small. Bike depot had some good deals on mediums and larges.

    The bike show has been like this for ever. I have not been for a long time. It is good for Road, but I never found good deals on MTB stuff. If you are looking for something specific, you are better off hitting a few bike shops. There are various shops having winter clear outs. I know Bike Zone in Barrie is doing one. Pretty sure most shops would be wanting to get rid of fat bikes now.

    I don't go ever year. Haven't been in 4 or 5 years so I felt like going back and now I am loosely looking for a fat bike if there was a deal but probably will wait till next year. Got to see some retailers I had never heard of or generally probably wouldn't have travelled to like The Bike Depot and Dornelias. Watched some flatland bmx and bike polo. I felt I got my moneys worth but on the fence whether Ill fight the crowds for the winter shows. Some deals were better than I would normally find in a bike shop. I know a lot of shops in the area where I live were doing 20% bikes and such.
