Custom bikes galore as the Bespoked Handmade Bicycle Show returns for its 8th year

What to expect at the Bespoked 2018

Bespoked is back in Bristol from 20 to 22 April this year, and as a self-professed “celebration of handmade bicycles and those who make them,” there will be plenty of opportunity to drool over an array of hand-built bikes, snazzy paint jobs, lustrous components and all manner of cycling paraphernalia.

The UK handmade bicycle show is now in its eighth year and continues to provide a platform to framebuilders to showcase their bicycles. Bespoked also promotes new and upcoming builders, which this year includes Lapsley Frameworks, Stayer Cycles and Trainor Cycles.

Many established UK builders will be there too, including Field, BTR, Feather and Robot Bike Co. Joining for the first time are Stinner Frameworks from the US, Angel from Spain and Prova Cycles from Australia.

Bespoked also covers components, apparel and accessories from interesting and high-end brands such as Chris King and Brooks. We're particularly excited to see Colourburn Studio’s booth this year as the Bristol based custom painter will be attending for the first time.

As part of the show, Bespoked organises a number of awards too and our very own Warren Rossiter will be sitting on one of the panels judging on behalf of BikeRadar.

Early bird tickets are available at £15 for each individual day (£20 on the door), or £30 for the whole weekend. There will be plenty of lush custom builds, new products, and wild, innovative designs on show so don't miss out.
