Bike Cult presents a show of beautiful bicycles in Brooklyn. Held in Williamsburg’s landmark Warsaw concert hall, the Polish National Home “where perogies meet punk,” on Labor Day weekend, August 30 and 31, 2013. Exhibitors include some of the finest artisans of custom hand-crafted bicycles from NYC and elsewhere. Over 20 makers will display their brand of made-to-order cycling machines, using a variety of materials and methods, where cliches like form vs. function, the genius in the details, and 10,000 hours practice surely apply.
That the bicycle has come to be so cool is no fault of itself. The world’s most efficient vehicle is not only about self-propelled transport and synergistic fun and freedom, it’s also profoundly aesthetic as a personal fashion statement embodied with wheels.
Bike Cult Show is produced by Harry Schwartzman, David Perry and Ben Peck. Harry Schwartzman organizes the NY Bike Jumble swap meets in Park Slope Brooklyn, David Perry is a former US National Team cyclist, author of Bike Cult and owner of Bike Works NYC ion the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Ben Peck is a frame builder in Brooklyn and master mechanic at Bike Works NYC, with over a dozen years experience in the bicycle industry.
