Bike Q&A

On 03, Jul 2015 | No Comments | In Happenings | By Gavin Bannerman

This may be a tricky time to run this event: three New South Welshman talking two days after a State of Origin decider about bikes in a format not dissimilar to ABC’s Q&A. But Pushies Galore is a platform for free speech and is more than willing to accommodate our southern brethren.

Come along to Crankstar on Friday 10 July from 7pm to join in a discussion with three great cycling identities, who just happen to be from Sydney, and kick off the Pushies weekend in style.

Ben Kamenjas is the owner and operator of Cicli Spirito on Sydney’s North Shore. Ben is a storyteller of the highest order, spinning yarns from his years in the bike industry (as well as just about every other industry you could imagine.) I’d call him a polymath, his interests traversing valleys seldom travelled by mere mortals. To get a feel for his space, have a look at these pics I took around Christmas last year of his studio.

Adam Leddin runs Cycle EXIF, an online collection of the world’s most beautiful bicycles. Fresh from Eroica Britannia, Adam’s worked as a bike courier and manages to combine his love of graphic design and bikes through his site.

Geoff Scott is an Australian framebuilder with the runs on board. He’s built under his own brand Gefsco as well as for Clarence Street Cyclery under the Clamont name. Geoff’s a regular contributor to online forums, generously sharing his decades of experience making frames. Geoff will be bringing up a carload of his special bikes, including a 1982 Clamont Professional Tandem (ridden by Russell and Byron Tucker) and bikes ridden in the Commonwealth Games.

A night of bike chat, beer and good food awaits.

Date: Friday 10 July

Time: 7pm – 10pm

Location: Crankstar Bespoke Cyclery, 50 Annerley Rd, Woolloongabba

Cost: $5 entry
