As the popularity of bike riding surges across Australia, more and more people are using bicycle design as an expression of their personal style. Outstanding craftsmanship and design are combined in this exhibition of custom-built bicycles from around the country. Designed by a group of invited bicycle builders, the bikes were selected for their aesthetics, artistry and creativity, and stories about the bikes and their builders accompany each exhibition. These handmade bikes have a quality and uniqueness that harks back to slower times.

Richard Birdsey, Sydney Cycle Chic’s Saskia Howard and Susan Goodwin talk about the SD11 theme, ‘Is old new again?’ at the preview of the handmade bicycle SD11 exhibition, Made To Measure.
