Wooden Bikes at Melburn Custom Bicycle Show

1890's Bamboo bike from the Farren Collection



#3, A Vaughan Plycycle.

#4, Bamboo and carbon Cyclocross

A 36" big-wheeled mountain bike with custom aluminium suspension forks from Fikas

Bowls in the middle of the Velodrome.  None of the bowlers were paying any attention to the bike observers and the feeing was pretty mutual.

My newest trike.  Note Spokey Dokes!
Lyrebird Frame and tube sample. The tube is very light with carbon and veneer layers.  There is a little bit about lyrebird cycles here and the build process (which makes my build process look incredibly simple) here .

A couple of days ago, I received an email notification that this event was on and I pootled up to see it, (a few km away) and saw friends Peter Falconer, Chook and Matt Benn up there.  Lots of nice bikes, creative in the frame material department, a bit less so in the frame configuration department.  Anyway, it was an enjoyable time, I got to visit the dumpster, the bakery and the op shop on the way up there too.
