Bespoked Dinners

One most enjoyable aspects of attending "Bespoked" is the evening dinners with fellow toiling frame builders. The banter and knowledge shared is fun and for me I only get to do this once or twice a year, so it is special. It all goes too quick, just too quick !

A special Bespoked dinner to remember.

One special dinner MAM and I had after Bespoked was done and dusted was on the Monday evening with Robin Mather and Vincent Crétin. Vincent Crétin is a young man who I knew of but knew little of. However as we all chatted for many hours that evening he made an impression on me because he is following his vision of needing to be on the path to be a complete "Constructeur". He moved to commence work at Gilles Berthoud (France) to follow this vision. He is not taking the easy path, he is not taking the short path. He is not about fluff and bright funky colours. This young man is a genuine frame builder. I will enjoy growing old following his work.

The awards conflict felt different this time for me because

I felt very emotional about this award. Because it was not for the best looking Sunflower on a townie bike's wicker basket with nice colour path ways, this Blue was judged by some very experienced life time frame builders. Yeah, I teared up a wee bit.

Wow, that will be a great looking frame.

A cherished tool

Circa 1978. I lived for my manual training classes of metal work, wood work, tech drawing and running at High School. My manual training teacher had been involved with bike racing so we got on well as I was dreaming of being another Eddy. For some forgotten reason I needed to use a divider for a project at home. My teacher said, "take these" I will bring them back on Monday. He said, "keep them, you will make good use of them" Nearly 40 years later I reflect on the story of these Moore and Wright dividers that have lived on the back of my bench. They have been used on every Llewellyn frame set I have made. Did I make good use of them?

Reminds me of silversmithing jewelry. Insanely technical work, very satisfying to see work is progress pictures!
