The "Bespoke: The Handbuilt Bicycle" show examines the resurgence of the hand-built bicycle.

From Portland, to New York, and Berlin to Copenhagen, it’s no surprise the latest generation of urbanites have rejected car culture for the eco-friendly option of bicycles. As an extension of this mindset, the demand for hand-crafted bicycles over mass manufactured ones has resurged. With new growth in the market, there is now more room than ever for small bicycle designers to explore innovative approaches to function, materials and aesthetics. This is where New York’s Museum of Arts and Design‘s Bespoke: The Handbuilt Bicycle show begins its investigation:

This exhibition features the designs of six internationally renowned bicycle builders who have authored some of the most revolutionary developments in their craft. Through their manipulation of steel, aluminum and titanium, these artisans produce racing bicycles for champion athletes, mountain and cyclocross bicycles for negotiating vertiginous terrain, urban bicycles for stylishly transporting commuters, and elegantly stripped down randonneur bicycles for epic journeys.

Participating designers include: Mike Flanigan, Jeff Jones, Dario Pegoretti, Richard Sachs, J. Peter Weigle, and Sacha White. Bespoke runs from May 13th through August 15th.
