Bespoked Bristol 2012

Bespoked last year was fantastic and was one of the first features we posted on the website and its looking like it’s going to be so much better than last year. Read more for all the information.

Bigger and better Bespoked Bristol rides back into town!

Bespoked Bristol, The UK Handmade Bicycle Show, returns from March 23rd to 25th 2012. With over 70 leading independent makers from the UK, Italy, France, USA and Germany coming to Brunel’s Old Station to showcase some of the most beautiful and desirable cycles on earth.

Now in its second year, the event provides a platform for the public, industry and press to meet artisan bicycle makers and share ideas.

Organisers Phil and Tessa Taylor are promising a bigger and better show for 2012: exhibitor numbers have doubled since last June’s inaugural event at Paintworks, Bristol, requiring a move to a larger venue. This will allow space for more stands, a dedicated area highlighting the work of up-and-coming frame builders.

Phil said: “This is the place for the public, industry and press to meet independent makers and designers of everything bicycle. We are working hard at putting together the best show we possibly can for Bespoked Bristol 2012. On the strength of last year’s show, we have managed to exceed all our expectations and pull in some of the best builders from the UK, Italy, France, USA and Germany.”

Among the confirmed exhibitors are UK legends Rourke, Roberts, Mercian, Mather, Condor and Argos. New young builders Donhou, Feather, Demon and Ted James. Italian maestros Pegoretti, Cinelli, Zullo (Mosquito) and US innovators Crisp, Independent Fabrication, Moots and Waterford.

A star studied panel of judges (including author and television presenter Rob Penn) will be awarding prizes to their chosen winners. Visitors to the show will also have a say in the ‘Public Vote Prize’

Bicycle-riding coffee connoisseurs Look Mum No Hands will keep visitors refreshed with their pop-up cafe during the show.

Whatever material you would like your custom bicycle to be made from, be it steel, carbon fiber, titanium, wood or bamboo, there will be a framebuilder there for you!

Show opening times: Friday 23 March, 5pm – 8pm; Saturday 24 March, 9.30am – 6pm; Sunday 25 March, 9.30am – 5pm.
