Bespoked Handmade Bicycle Show 2018

Reporting in from Bespoked, the UK’s Handmade Bicycle Show, Jon is here to showcase some of the most beautifully crafted bikes and latest tech on display.

The GCN Shop:

Based yearly in Bristol, Bespoked brings together the most talented frame builders, painters and cycling related entrepreneurs to showcase their talents. From race winning road machines to quirky custom builds, there is a huge range of one-off bicycles to be amazed by.

What was on the menu in 2018? Jon was on the hunt for the new prototype wireless FSA groupset, adjustable integrated aero stem and bar combos and some of the most stunning paint jobs in the business. Not to mention some pretty lary track bikes, plenty of gravel bike setups and some which you can hardly categorise at all!

Check out Dan Craven’s Commonwealth Games Custom Saffron, Argon 18’s Galaxy paint job from Colourburn Studios and a rather glittery affair from Demon Frameworks.

  1. ride it like you stole it? not funny at all. how about " i will beat you with a stick if you steal this bike ! " instead ?

  2. 3:40 there's nothing more quintessentially english than condescending not knowing the translation/ pronunciation of basic french words (save for maybe colonialism)

  3. Do not smooth welds!………the only people who smooth welds are learning to weld or are just Sh*t at it

  4. LMAO! Jon wins award for the worst pronunciation of mecredi in history!
    Oh, and its only the afternoons kids have off school here in Belgium – with the aim of that period being available for sports – hence the bike brand….
