Bespoked Bike Check: Quirk Cycles SUPERCHUB

by 10

We’d love to tempt you along to Bespoked, the Handmade Bicycle Show celebrating handmade bikes and the people that make them. To give you a taste of what you might see, we’ve got a few bike checks from builders and makers who will be at the show. You don’t need to be in the market to buy a bike to come along. Lots of frame builders will spend long hours alone in workshops building their bikes, so the chance to have an appreciative audience to chat about their creations with is often very welcome. Look, maybe even stroke, admire, and...

    It’s very very pretty. I like the use of 3d printing too.

    from a practical point of view though, all that internal routing, especially via the steerer makes me feel a bit ill.

    That is very pretty, liking the anodising and the 3D printing but… £3425 for a steel hardtail frame!!

    Sorry. but £20 a ticket plus the cost of getting there to see bikes I can’t afford seems a bit much. I’ll just wait for your excellent coverage for free…(Well subs price obvs).

    A lovely looking frame. I really like the bronze & grey on the frame & fork, but not digging the contrast with the gold anodising at all.

    I was thinking that, the comment about it taking a long time to get the anodising ‘just right’ and that’s the colour they were looking for?

    They should flip the stem, then it would really look like it’s vomiting cables.

    Also, how flipping far out are they runnning those brake levers?

    If I were to go that far with integrating/hiding the cables, first off I’d use AXS… but then for hoses, I’d make them black, and use levers that had the hose exiting the lever nearer to the bar (a la Trickstuff Piccola, the one without the mega wait), then drill the bar and run them through that, into the stem and steerer so you wouldn’t have that big loop still. And run the front brake fully down the back of the fork leg.

    The way they’ve done it makes it look more cluttered than standard, not helped by the coloured cables, IMO.

    I’ll be there, what’s the worst that could happen?

    I too like the colour.

    I too don’t like the odd cable arrangement – and agree with Tom about running wireless…

    Cables look weird, price is crazy but it is very pretty
