Our (well Brian’s own) Rourke 953 road bike came 2nd in the public vote for best in show at Bespoked Bristol. The competition was outstanding and I have to say we’re delighted.
We will be showing at the Bespoked Bristol Handmade Bicycles Show

Ride of My Life: The Story of the Bicycle
Guardian Bookshop Notes:
A celebration of one of mankind’s greatest invention – the most efficient self-powered means of transportation ever invented. Rob Penn has designed and built his own dream machine and in describing the process, he explores the history of bikes, their social importance, the science and design involved, and all-in-all welcomes a new golden age for pedal power.
Tells the story of a journey to design and build a dream bike. From Stoke-on-Trent, where an artisan hand builds his frame, to California, home of the mountain bike, where the author tracks down the perfect wheels, via Portland, Milan and Coventry, birthplace of the modern bicycle, this narrative is about our love affair with cycling.
