May is Bike Month and there are all kinds of events in New York City planned. Our favourite to date is Bespoke, the exhibition of custom hand-built bicycles at the Museum of Arts and Design curated by Michael Maharam.
http://www.dqmnewyork.com/images/news_uploads/21 bikes from six renowned custom bike builders including Mike Flanigan, Jeff Jones, Richard Sachs, J. Peter Weigle, Sacha White, and Dario Pegoretti will be on display at MAD until the 15th of August.
“Bespoke: The Handbuilt Bicycle displays the designs of six internationally renowned bicycle builders whose work in metal, as well as graphics and artifacts, elucidate this refined, intricate and deeply individual craft. Organized by Michael Maharam, owner of the eponymous textile company and an avid bicycle collector, along with master builder Sacha White of Vanilla Bicycles in Portland, Oregon, this survey is presented as part of the MADProjects exhibition series, which explores emerging trends and innovations in the design world.”
