Bristol Bespoked. Photographs.

June 12, 2011

There was some great stuff on show, Ricky Feather’s track frame was stunning, as was Donhou’s road bike built for Tim of the Daily cycle and let’s not talk about the Dura Ace equipped Brother track bike. Feather and Donhou were also awarded prizes for best Best track frame and best Utility bike respectively, as voted for by the exhibitors.

All in all a top day with some amazing things to see and also plenty of ideas if you were thinking about a build, which is pretty much me the whole time but sans cash.

Bristol Bespoked
are already calling for exhibitors for 2012 so start pestering your local builder now, so we can see next year’s show being twice as big!

More pics of the day here at my flickrspot.

Odin gave me a great mood board for his project and we worked closely on the paint firing plenty of drawings back and forth ’till we got it just right. Swan white with jet black interior panels. Big hi-5 as we’re both really stoked on it.

Built using oversized Reynolds 631 into a semi compact design and using a carbon fork to keep the weight down, this will be a fun little everyday bike.

Looking forward to meeting the man behind these frames tomorrow at the Bristol’s Bespoked… The countdown has begun!

Just grabbed my tickets and it’s fair to say I’m really looking forward to it.

I’m pretty much going to spending all of Saturday ogling fancy bikes, but aside from that I hope to meet a lot of the people I have emailed and spoken to through here, it’ll be great to put a few faces to some names.

See you saturday!

Bespoked Bristol.

A lot of you may already know this but:

Bespoked Bristol is the UK’s first handmade & boutique bicycle show celebrating the craft of beautiful bicycles. The event will showcase the talents of independent makers and designers of bicycles, small-scale makers of premium products, components, clothing, bicycle accessories, and media.

Bristol is the UK’s first Cycle City so is the ideal place to host the show which will be a focal point for makers and customers to come together and discuss and share ideas. Awards will be up for grabs, including the most beautiful bicycle and product of the show.

Above you will see a lovely piece of craftmanship by Tom Donhou who will be exhibiting at the show and it’s actually my pal Sparky’s BB too… Nice work chaps.

Bespoked takes place on 10th-12th June at Paintworks, Bristol and I will most certainly be attending.

For a full list of exhibitors go peep. You won’t be dissapointed!
