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 ask questions – just by buying a ticket and showing your appreciation for their skills you’re helping to support the hand built bicycle scene.
A hand-built bike for the really exceptional use in a hilly terrain.
With 38 years of building and 900 bikes to his name, Zürich based Röbi says he is happy to build you ‘any’ type of bike. You could choose from steel, stainless steel, titanium, and aluminium, and since he says his favourite part of building is ‘The customer’s smile when the bike gets handed over’, you should end up happy with your choices.
