Bespoked 2017

Here are our highlights from Bristol's (and the UK's) leading framebuilders festival.

Bespoked is celebration of handmade bicycles and those who make them. Now in it's 6th year, the event is all about showcasing the best hand build frames, bicycles, parts and accessories. 

"This is the place for the public, industry and press to meet independent makers and designers of everything bicycle."

Phil invites us to serve the best: Wiper & True beer on tap, Square Mile Coffee Roasters and freshly prepared food. While we were keeping you watered and fed. We ran around to check the show for you. 

Here are our highlights
