Bespoked Bristol – The Gallery

by 5

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) …

Nice dropouts made to use Paragon inserts. So you can run plus or regular sized tyres. Whimper. Less than a year, remember?

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).
