Bespoked Bristol

A good if wet day out yesterday over in Temple Meads, Bristol.
A really good turn out of bikes, frames and components. I couldn't pick one bike from the show that stood out for me, but manufacturer wise, it had to be Field Cycles from Sheffield.
I loved the truss forked 29er, not least because it was brown. Their handlebars and stems were a work of art. The paintwork was immaculate on all their bikes and parts.

Next up in my not-a-top-three was the Titchmarsh Long John cargo bike. Beautiful engineering on the hub centre steering and really nicely put together.

The final round up was outside. The Windcheetah was parked up outside and I really wanted to try it out.

So a few others that caught my eye.
Souplesse bamboo bike
14 Bike Co. x Royce
Hobo Bushwacker
Alchemy Arion carbon beast
Faggin leather bound bike

ERA in the new builder section with lovely Barry Sheene/Heron paint work.
Finally someone is having a crack at reinventing the wheel with Loopwheels
A good show, thanks to the organisers.
