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

trainor Cycles

I first caught the bug as a teenager in the 90s, when I lived and breathed mountain bikes. In 2012 I quit the boring professional career to set up as a freelance bike mechanic in Manchester. I still run revolveMCR Mobile Cycle Repairs and the Rapha Manchester workshop, and love nearly every minute of it.

I started building frames on a Bicycle Academy course in about 2012, and have been honing my skills since, around running the other side of the business. I believe in the beauty of the bicycle philosphically, practically and aesthetically, and if I get close to expressing that in my work I'll go home happy. I haven't got a bloody clue what I'm going to show yet, but there's a heavy chance that it will be Fred Dibna practical and Magic Roundabout colourful. I hope so anyway. Cheers!
