Bespoked 2021: Huge gallery of stunning bikes as UK handcrafted bike show celebrates 10th anniversary
the Tailored show, the UK’s premier celebration of handmade bikes and those who make them, is back for 2021. After the 2020 hiatus for obvious reasons, this year marks the 10th anniversary, with the show taking place in Harrogate rather than our native southwest. That didn’t stop us from making the trip, so here’s a bumper bike porn gallery for you!

Today we get straight to the point and bring you the bikes, but over the weekend our man on the pitch, Richard Peace, will give us a more detailed summary of the highlights of Bespoked. We will take away a few intriguing elements, however, starting with this Vandal metallurgy “converted grunge look” bike …
… with some plugging details on the fork.
Bespoked always has its fair share of wood creations, and this construction of Twmpa cycles catches our attention.
The details are gorgeous and each is made from European Ash grown in the UK under a sustainable forestry program.
Here is the classic Titanium Road Revolution from Reilly cycleworks.
And Reilly was also showing off this beautiful frame, designed to commemorate its founder Mark Reilley, who tragically passed away earlier this year.
Experts in bicycle luggage Webbing collaborated with See to create these special packs, which give a funky iridescent glow even in daylight. We’re told they need to be seen up close to be truly believed, but I hope you get the picture!
