A Framebuilder’s Goodbye to Velo Cult
August 18 at 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Please join the Oregon Bicycle Constructors Association and Hopworks Urban Brewery as we present the final event at VeloCult before they wind down. There will be fun examples of local, national and international bicycle frame builders displaying one of their finest machines. We plan a low key opportunity meet and chat with builders, see examples of the craft of custom frame building showcasing a number of different styles. There will be builders showing traditional lugged steel construction techniques, fillet brazing and TIG welding, titanium welded construction and an aluminum builders to round out the current material offerings. Each builder is a master and would enjoy answering your questions about how they could craft your next dream bicycle. The current builder list includes:
Put this fun event on your calendar, come out and see what’s new, traditional and just plain well done in the frame construction world while enjoying a delicious Hopworks beer. We hope this will be a fitting send off for VeloCult as they focus on spreading their unique view on bicycle culture through their online endeavors. The OBCA is forever indebted to Sky and the VeloCult team for what they have brought to the Portland bicycle scene and the bicycle industry as a whole. VeloCult closing leaves a huge void in our community…you will be missed.
