Hack Bike Derby

The Hack Bike Derby Annual Invitational is an excuse for framebuilders to make some bikes for the hell of it then race them against each other.

The event is something that I’ve wanted to make happen for about three years, but with an already full plate it has been too hard to fit in, up until now. I didn’t have any more time, but I simply couldn’t put it off any longer.

This year’s event was Klunker themed, and it was awesome. The weather was terrible, almost biblical, but everyone was fully committed to living the hack bike dream and as a result we had one of the most memorable bike weekends ever.

There’s already plans for next year’s event, so if you’re interested please get in touch…
