Britain’s leading hand-built bike show, Bespoked 2015, is just a few days away and we’re really excited to be taking part again. Long-time Cloud 9 fans will remember we launched our awesome Street Racer at last year’s event, so you know you can expect something awesome at Stand 37 in Bristol on 17 – 19 April.
Cloud 9’s Kris has been hard at work on our builds for weeks now and while we don’t want to give too much away, what we can say is we are building the best city bike the world has ever seen!
Here's a few snaps of the build in process to whet your appetites!
You must Be-spoking!
For those not familiar with Bespoked, it started as an opportunity for the best British frame builders to show off their wares, but it has quickly expanded into one of the leading shows for premium bike brands and frame builders from from all over the world. In fact, we’re as excited about seeing what the other exhibitors, like our pals at Feather Cycles and Ted James Design, will bring as we are about showing off our own work.
There’s really something for everyone at Bespoked, with awards categories as diverse as ‘Best Utility’, ‘Best Road’, ‘Spirit of Cycling’ and of course, the much-coveted Constructors Challenge – which sees teams made up of builders, designers and customers exhibiting a custom-built bicycle created for a real-life task. As the Bespoked website puts it, “The [Constructor’s Challenge] will demonstrate the diversity of possible uses for this simple and adaptable machine - and that they form a viable alternative to the car for everyday work and daily life.”
If you’re interested in buying a handbuilt bike, love design and innovation, or you’re just passionate about cycling then you need to come join us at Bespoked. Get your tickets here.
