Tomorrow is another installment of the Museum’s ongoing series of talks on the Bespoke Bicycle. A couple of weeks ago it was the future of the bicycle, from a city development point of view. This time around its about the bicycle as the object and the handbuilt movement. Here is more about the event tomorrow:
The Future of Bikes: Bikes as Object

As part of the Future of Bikes series, this panel discussion brings together designers of hand-built, mass-produced and alternative material bicycles to discuss the varieties of process and practices found in contemporary bike design. Presentations will be given by Johnny Coast (Coast Cycles), Marty Odlin (Bamboo Bike Studio), Peter Reich (Swift Folding Bikes), and Steve Baumann (Industrial Design Director of Trek Bicycles). A group discussion will follow with moderator Dave Perry, owner of Bike Works on Ridge St, NYC, and author of Bike Cult.

Come early if you haven’t seen the Bespoke art exhibit showing off a bunch of handbuilt bicycles. The museum closes at 9:00, so you won’t get too much time to see it if you are coming for the panel, which usually ends around 8:45pm.
Also, check your bags. Big packs and bags are not allowed in the exhibit floor.
