Roberts Cycles, 89 Gloucester Road, Croydon, Surrey CR0 2DN, England
The latest ROBERTS bikes have been buffed and tweaked and are ready to inspect at Bespoked 2014 this weekend. The show, at the Olympic Velodrome, will be a feast for bike fans, and the surrounding Queen Elizabeth Park will be a magnet for anyone not intent on seeing the cycling sights.
Chas, Adrian and Neil will be available to chat, you can see the limited edition ROBERTS Cycling jersey and we've a brand new Transcontinental featuring one of the first of our new steel 700c forks built for disc brakes.
We've also got the award-winning Roughstuff, the indomitable DOGSBOLX plus road, audax, singlespeed and a super new example of the type of women's audax bike that we're justly famed for. It's 10 years since its debut and the ULT BackPack ultralight "folding" bike is back. In all that time, it's never been bettered (though we have managed to shave a few more grammes off for this year).
It will be a fantastic opportunity to gauge the state of current British custom framebuilding, against some of the best from the rest of the world, in a unique venue. You can compare us to the competition in person - we won't be found wanting!

"My wife's touring bike, my touring bike and an old racing bike there, are all made by Chas Roberts from Croydon who's a fantastic artisan."
