Last week saw the 2016 Bespoked handmade bike show in Bristol. Our intrepid reporters Jon Meredith and Shaggy Ross went over there and took a colossal pile of photographs. Here’s a pick of just a few of them:
Shiny purple accessories detailing on this ‘Mustard’ custom, by Prestige Cycles (Brighton & Hove) …
… and some lovely little details too.
Purple-tastic-ness; largely from Hope.
WE do like this neat internal routing.
Some simple, clean lines from Mawis’ Ti hardtail, with a kinked seatstay.
Bice has been going for less than a year. LESS THAN A YEAR, PEOPLE.
Nice dropouts made to use Paragon inserts. So you can run plus or regular sized tyres. Whimper. Less than a year, remember?
The Goodies get rad.
A slice of mental from Dear Susan. Mental which doesn’t recognise its left hand side.
So sprockets and brakes are all on the right. It’s very Conservative (see what I did there? A little bit of politics, laydeesngennlemen? Try the salmon).
Toad – insert ‘whole’ gag here.
Curtis. Some bikes look as good grubby as they do clean. This is one of them.
Oh, Middleburn, how pretty thou art.
A machine befitting the wild-haired, wide-nostrilled agoraphile…
