We had a great time in Bristol at our first Bespoked UK show, 7-9 April 2017! We were in good company at Stand 57, with Steve and Rob of Rodford Built and Eric Estlund of Winter Bicycles as neighbors, and Craig Calfee and Rob English right nearby. We were surrounded by Bespoked Award winners, current and former! The weather was beautiful (really!), and we really enjoyed Bristol. The area of town around Brunel’s Old Station is being revitalized, and offers some great restaurants and pubs. We particularly enjoyed the Mud Dock Café, Pub, and Bikeshop. Everything good in one place: bikes, beer, and coffee. Not necessarily in that order.
The Métier Vélo website has been updated with the pricing and order info for 2017!
For 2017, Métier Vélo frames will be available in two editions: Classic and Team. Classic edition frames are US-sourced with lugs printed by GPI Prototypes on a 3D Systems DMP320 and tubes from RockWest Composites. Team edition frames are global, and feature lugs printed by Kanfit3D on an EOS 290 and and full custom, filament-wound tubes from Tim Crossman Composites in Ukraine.
Frames are available as part of a complete bicycle package (best value) or with a fork, headset, and bottom bracket installed (a fuselage).
Top reasons to consider a Métier Vélo:
We had a great time at NAHBS 2017 in Salt Lake City! Mountain Bike Pro and good friend Emma Maaranen helped out in the Métier Vélo booth and showed her custom do-it-all-road-bike. Thanks, Emma! Judging by the amount of dirt on the #EDIARB that I cleaned off for the show, it spends at least as much time off pavement as on.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by the booth to have a look a the bikes and chat. We even had a cameo by Marty Jemison! How cool is that?
Métier Vélo had some great media coverage. Check out these articles by Anna Schwinn (BikeRumor), James Huang (CyclingTips), and Nic Sims (Pez Cycling News). Thanks to Don Walker (NAHBS President and Founder) for having Métier Vélo at the show. We’re looking forward to NAHBS 2018, 16-18 February in Hartford CT!
