Beautiful Bikes of Bespoked UK - Part 2
Welcome to Part 2 of the Beautiful Bikes of Bespoked UK! Click here to check out Part 1.
This is Adam's personal touring bike. It took him thousands of miles across Europe and Asia without a hiccup. It's always fun to see what the actual builder rides. His bike is outfitted with our Smooth Fenders, 50.4 Crankset, Voyager Rims, Nouveau Randonneur Bars, Dia-Compe Bar End Shifters, and 31.8 Threadless Stem.
Sometimes all you need is an elegant ride with comfortable handlebars, classic design, and non-fussy components. This city bike features a whole suite of VO including 700c Hammered Fenders, 1x Crankset, 0 Setback Seatpost, Front and Rear Hubs, Enterprise Rims, 1 1/8" Headset, Threadless Stem, and Left Bank Handlebars.
Honestly, I'm not one for tri bikes, but hot dang if this isn't a marvel of modern engineering and design. The headtube, seat cluster, bottom bracket shell, dropouts, fork blades, fork crown, chainstays, aero base bar, AND crank arms are all 3d printed titanium! And it is buttoned up in a very cool rainbow finish. What a bike.
The crew at Wizard Works makes stunning custom and production cycling luggage in London. And while they didn't have Ve's personal Neutrino on display, they did have this Clandestine Tourer all outfitted with their gear. This bike also won Best Touring Bike of the show! I feel like it really embodies a modern touring bike. Nicely fitted luggage in all the right places, modern components, practical lighting, and purposeful rack attachments. This one featured our Voyager Rims - an excellent basis for any touring wheelset.
Made in Italy, this wild track-inspired bike is made from carbon fiber with CNC'd aluminum lugs! The intricacy and shaping of each of these lugs makes for an interesting juxtaposition of wild shaping yet fairly composed application.
Stayer had this super fun and shreddy Klunker-style bike on display featuring our 650b Smooth Fenders. I also really liked the tinted clear coat to both seal in and protect the metal, while still being able to see all the joins and details of the frame and fork.
Finally, this HiLite custom titanium credit card tourer! This also sports a nice smattering of VO including a Cantilever Rando Front Rack, Grand Cru Brake Levers, Zeste Cantilever Brakes, Threadless Stem, and Porteur Bars.
Bespoked was such a great show. We're really happy that we made it out there to meet and see so many faces in a great venue. Thanks again for the Bespoked group for putting on such a show and hope to see you all next year!
Although I favor the look and functionality of classic style high-quality road bikes from the 1960’s through the 1970’s, seeing your photos and comments from this “Bespoked” show is truly impressive, showcasing the creativity of modern custom bicycle builders. A lot of innovation on display here!
