Bespoked is an annual event now held in Bristol, and is the UK's answer to the North American Handbuilt Bike Show. The 2019 edition of the show was located last weekend in Brunel's Temple Meads railway station, with exhibitors from the United States to Japan, and everything in between.

Bespoked say that the show is primarily a celebration of handmade bicycles and those who make them. As you might expect, many of the exhibitors are traditional metal framesets with eye-catching paint designs, combined with the latest and greatest drivetrain components and wheels.

Earlier this week, Shimano launched a gravel-specific groupset, and while the new components were not yet on display at the show, plenty of gravel, adventure, touring and road-plus bikes, as well as equipment and accessories, were showcased that could perfectly complement the new groupset.

Stalwarts of the industry including Condor Cycles and Campagnolo were some of the bigger brands on show alongside smaller, independent frame builders from across the world.
