Bespoked 2016

THE UK HANDMADE BICYCLE SHOW

The UK Handmade Bicycle Show 2016 aka UKHBS or Bespoked Bristol yet again amazed us by the sheer talent, creativity and beauty of the bicycles being showcased. A show that must now be the UK's most prestigious cycling event in the yearly calendar, we came away wondering at a simple fact. That a room full of people, who all were designing and creating a bicycle, could produce such a wide variation of the same thing. The craft, skill and talent at the show was incredible. Our conclusion is that people who cycle are the most talented at whatever they do. This is what we saw.

Now in it’s sixth year, Bespoked The UK Handmade Bicycle Show 2016 continues to grow and has become a huge event for any cyclists calendar. The talent and creativity never ceases to amaze us and this year was no exception, from Robin Mather’s adjustable geometry bike to 3D printed titanium lugs.

Quirk Cycles also stood out for us. A former Bicycle Academy student who attended the framebuilding course just 18 months ago and started building bikes about a year ago. Rob Quirk took home three awards, including “Outstanding New Framebuilder”, “Outstanding Design Award” and “The Brooks Choice”.
