Bespoked - The UK Handmade Bicycle Show - A Celebration of Handmade Bicycles & Those Who Make Them
Fresh from his successful USA pilgrimage, frame building Odyssey and debut appearance at the North American Handmade Bicycles Show Petor Georgallou of Dear Susan comes to Bespoked riding a spiritually enlightened path towards building average bikes for average people as a substrate for extra ordinary paint.
‘Petor comes at cycling from a place of fun, experimentation, and sometimes radical self-expression. Dear Susan bicycles are a breath of fresh air for even the most cynical and furrowed-browed frame building enthusiast.’

hallet handbuilt cycles
I build cycles and framesets for anything from laden touring and audax-style riding to competitive cycling, in steel, using the traditional techniques of brazing, fillet brazing and silver soldering.
I began building cycle frames having spent more than 20 years testing and reviewing bikes and writing about the intricacies of cycling technology for publications including Cycling Weekly, Cycle Sport, Rouleur, Procycling and Cycling Plus.

Heim bicycles is a one man company based in Trondheim, Norway. As a novice builder in the bikescene, this will be my second year at the Bespoked after building for about 1 year. I strictly build with steel, mostly Columbus and Reynolds with love for both lugs and fillets. My work is based on oldschool building. We're talking full scale blueprints by hand, building off table and mitering with handfiles, none of that fancy stuff, keeping it simple and rad. I build forks, wheels, frames and do all the paintwork myself. Check out my stand and let's have a chat. Looking forward to seeing you at this years show!
