Treadlie Hits Town!

Great to finally meet Faith from Treadlie Mag after months of talking, emailing and twittering....
The official launch of their Handmade Bicycle Show happened on Friday night - if you're quick you might just catch them today before they head back on down the Hume Highway.

A couple of my personal favourites, the Velo Orange guys bike with customised porteur rack and box on the front and the Black Beauty - a simple old vintage bike, resprayed and made practical with the old style handmade crate on the back.

Mrs Fairweather's Bicycle Emporium is the Adelaide based home of gorgeous up-cycled vintage bikes each with their own story. What a discovery - just brilliant.  I think we'll be hearing more from Mrs Fairweather....

A great night with many bikes, people and empty bottles crammed in to the old Deus store on Oxford Street.  More pics from the event on flickr and the Sydney Design film we did here.
