After a couple of years of supplying gear to other frame builders for bicycle shows, we've stepped up properly this year to occupy our own small corner of the Bespoked UK Handmade Bicycle Show at the Lee Valley Olympic Velodrome in London. Armed with two awesome display stands, some super-cool banners and a lot of caffeine, we're ready to talk all things bikepacking to the Bespoked-going public.
Huge thanks to Shand Cycles for creating a CX-style pseudo-frameset for us to display a special bolted version of our Leopard Frame bag - totally strap-free and super stable. The bag utilises the standard bottle bosses on the seat and down tubes, and a series of four bolts on the underside of the top-tube; if you're getting a custom frame made, then this style of attachment is an option.
For the show we're partnered with DMO Frameworks, where thanks go to Olly Webb for adjusting a standard MTB frame for us to display our classic Snow Leopard, Mountain Lion and Tiger set up. Here, the Snow Leopard utilises our Gate/ Panel Opening option to maximise access into a small frame size. The front taper also provides maximum storage space.
We're also pleased to have on display a new product in the Wildcat Gear line-up. More info on that later this weekend. If you make it to the show, be sure to pop over and see us on Stand 44.
