Reynolds returns to Bristol for handbuilt bike show Bespoked 2019
On 3-5 May, Reynolds Technology headed to Bristol to attend the bike show Bespoked 2019. The Bespoked UK Handmade Bicycle Show has been running for 9 years and attracts framebuilders and companies from all over the UK, as well as abroad. We were exhibitors again this year, our 120th year in business.
We showcased a range of steel and titanium tubing, including a number of new parts such as double bend chainstays and seatstays, 3D printed titanium and stainless steel components, and some of our limited edition 120th anniversary decals and beer mats.
There were also a number of beautiful frames built with Reynolds tubing on display at the show, including a stunning 953 from Varonha Frameworks, recipient of the Cyclist Magazine choice award, as well as a 921 build by Islabikes, part of the Imagine project, which seeks to make bicycle manufacture and supply more sustainable.
Sean Conway’s record-breaking Stanforth Conway with 853 tubing was also there. The bike covered 3980 miles in 24 days, 18 hours and 39 minutes – not that you would be able to tell, looking at the remarkably clean looking frame – to take the world record for cycling across Europe last summer.
You can browse through some of the frames featuring Reynolds at Bespoked this year, as well as some close-ups of the 3D printed components, tubing and merchandise on our stand below.
