We were fortunate to be able to attend Bespoked, the UK Handmade Bicycle Show, in Bristol April 15th – 17th.  The event was held in Brunel's Old Station, a train station designed in 1841 by one of the world’s most famous architects, Isambard Kingdom Brunel.  With close to 100 exhibitors in attendance, the hall was packed with frame builders, bicycles, and people from around the world.  The frames varied in material and from traditional to alternative (Dear Susan's egg-themed bike was quite a hit), but the quality and beauty of them all was consistently amazing.  Our favorite part of the show was being able to meet the frame builders that use our parts, and to see them integrated into their frames.  A sincere thanks to all the frame builders who made us feel so welcome, took the time to show us their work, and gave us feedback and ideas for improvement.
