Innovation.

That’s what many makers within the Australian bike scene use to set themselves apart in a global market. After all, Australia’s high cost of living and lack of locally produced raw materials aren’t exactly conducive to doing things cheaper. Similarly, there isn’t much of a mystical cycling legacy to build a brand upon.

And so, the Australian makers that have been able to cut through into the global custom bike market have done so because they’ve mastered the craft while progressing the game. Or in some cases, they’ve created their own game to play. 

In this second gallery of our coverage from the 2022 Handmade Bicycle Show Australia, we take a look at some of the most innovative and creative makers in the space. Scroll on through to see gorgeous builds from Prova, Bastion, Mooro, and more. And amazingly, there are still plenty more world-class and enticing builds to come in the next gallery.
