Bespoked Bristol

I’m really looking forward to Bespoked Bristol thats coming up in April. The exhibitors list is bursting with the best of British framebuilding, (from the legendary Roberts Cycles to the up and coming Oak Cycles), as well as a few international builders.

Bespoked have released some great ‘Meet the Maker’ video profiles, which really give a flavour of the skill and craftsmanship that go into a handbuilt custom (mostly) steel frame.

getting there…

Got my Dawes Galaxy back from Ryan at Oak Cycles yesterday, with a new headtube after the old one cracked, and ┬áhe’s done a great job! It’ll be off for a new coat of powdercoat at Armoutex in a couple of weeks, still undecided on colour, but will probably be green of some description. I’m planning some new mudguards, racks, bigger tyres and a new saddle when I build it up again. Can’t wait to have this one back on the road.!
