Two weeks until Bespoked 2018

There are now just two weeks to go until the annual Bespoked Cycle Show in Brunel’s Old Station building.

2018 will be the eighth annual event, with numbers increasing year-on-year to 6,000 attendees in 2017. This year, Bespoked will once again feature a packed lineup of talks alongside a host of exhibitors.

Things to check out in 2018: Moss Bikes will be unveiling its 170mph bike, Enigma Titanium will be debuting its gravel bike and Robot Bikes will present its full suspension mountain bike to the crowds. Heritage brands Brooks England, Reynolds, Columbus, Campagnolo and Condor will be there alongside the best of the new guard.

There will be bicycle accessories, components, apparel, art and literature from the likes of Chris King, Swrve, Quoc Pham and Boneshaker Magazine.

Attendees can check out the Women’s Framebuilder Initiative on Friday at 3pm and join the panel to discuss how the industry can use framebuilding to address gender inequality within society. Taking part in the panel is Lee Craigie of the Adventure Syndicate – a collective of female endurance cyclists whose aim is to increase levels of self-belief and confidence in others by telling inspiring stories, creating an encouraging community and delivering enabling workshops and training.
