The Handbuilt Bicycle show presents the work some of the UK’s (and world’s) best custom bicycle frame builders, and plays host to some of the best component manufacturers from around the globe. It’s a festival of bicycle fanaticism and, if you love bikes and engineering, then there’s not a show in the country that can compare.
Here are a few pictures of the things I was most impressed by:
The 2013 show bike.
The Middleburn fondle table.
Anyone remember the Softride?
Chris King and one of his beautiful exploded hubs.
Chris King Hubs on some custom shelving.
Columbus Tubes. What dreams are made of.
Laminated curved seatstays,
Internal cable routing on wooden seatstays.
3D printed titanium dropouts from Reynolds tubing.
