We're stoked about Made to Measure - the Treadlie Handmade Bicycle Show which will be held in Melbourne and Sydney during the month of July.
Sydney dates: Thursday July 28th-31st as part of Sydney Design 2011 at kind of. Gallery, 72 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst .
We've contacted bicycle builders from all over the country; professionals, gifted amateurs, artists and dreamers, and put together eighteen fabulous bicycles of all persuasions for a four day bike-drooling fest! From now until late July, sheds and workshops around the country will be busy with welding and sawing, paint will be spattered, grease will be flying, there'll be cussing, tantrums and at the end of it all, pride, maybe even a tear, a beautiful bike, and a darn good story.
Our eighteen bikes (and yes, we do like to think of them as ours) include road bikes, cruisers, mountain bikes, hot rods, porteurs, commuters, polo bikes, randoneurs, a cargo bike and some classy ladies uprights. Many are made from scratch, maybe from bamboo, some are lovingly restored with a creative twist, one has set World Records, others should, some have lugs, some have gorgeous paintwork and others have a thing for leather.
