Bespoked - a celebration of handmade bicycles & those who make them

Every year at Bespoked we ask leaders in their field to select a number of bicycles and products that they feel excel in their field.


A couple of years ago we changed the format of the awards and moved away from the 'Best...' title as we felt that, due to the individual nature of the bicycles at Bespoked, every bicycle is the best for the person and purpose it is intended.


For exhibitors at Bespoked the awards are one of the highlights of the show, a prestigious accolade that they can be immensely proud of.


Below are the 2018 award categories.Bespoked 2018 Award Categories
