In a few short years, the Bespoked UK Handmade Bicycle Show has become a huge attraction for independent frame builders and discerning cyclists alike, and for 2016 the show will host 100 of the finest frame builders and designers from around the world in Brunel’s Old Station in Bristol on 15-17th April 2016.
This sixth edition of the popular show is a rare chance for people to meet the talent behind some of the most prestigious brands, from the likes of Shand Cycles to Baum Cycles, Donhou Bicycles to Saffron Frameworks. The show is open from 15th April for the afternoon and all weekend from 16-17th April. Advance tickets cost £10 and can be purchased now from www.billetto.co.uk
“Framebuilders and cycle visionaries will come from as far afield as Australia to show their latest creations, and will be on hand to discuss your dream bicycle – be that the lightest titanium road bike built for speed and comfort, a robust adventure bike for weekend expeditions into the wild, or a cargo bike from which to run a business,” say the organisers.
Here are some of the 2016 highlights:
