Bespoked - a celebration of handmade bicycles & those who make them

Welcome to Bespoked 2019 - now in its ninth year, Bespoked has firmly established itself as the premier handmade bicycle show in Europe. The world’s greatest artisan bicycle makers will be in Bristol at Brunel’s Old Station to showcase their work for three days over the weekend of the 3rd - 5th May 2019.

 

At Bespoked most of the bikes on show will have been commissioned by individuals, and are the result of a partnership between customer and maker. Many bikes on show will be previously unseen – Bespoked is the highlight in the framebuilders’ calendar and they all work hard to bring something special to the show.

 

As well as classically beautiful bikes built for the road, track, mountains and town, you can expect to see the unexpected: from ground breaking design to alternative visions from people who think outside the box.

 

There will also be handmade cycling accessories, components, apparel, footwear, art and literature on show. An exciting program of talks will be taking place and London cycle cafe Look Mum No Hands will be serving coffee, cakes, beer and more.

 

 

Bespoked 2019 Show Film

If you couldn't make it to the ninth edition of Bespoked or you want to remind yourself of what a great time you had at the show, here is a short film of highlights at Bespoked 2019.

Angel Cycle Works

With so many skilled framebuilders exhibiting at Bespoked it's hard to stick to just one each week! Meet Jose Angel Calabuig of Angel Cycle works, making Titanium frames and components with personality in Spain.

Framebuilder of the week - Beaumont Bicycle

 

This week we meet Liz Colebrook of Beaumont Bicycle. Liz set up Beaumont Bicycle in 2015 after many years in the industry. She welcomes customers needing or preferring a 'step-through' frame but not exclusively. She also owns TJ Cycles and the exclusive rights to build the iconic 'Flying Gate' frameset.

 

 

This week we meet NIck Coates of Beamz, possibly the only framebuilder making bikes from coppiced woodland poles. A truly sustainable material, these poles are made into high performance bicycles with a unique natural beauty and feel.
