Donhou at Design Museum
Cycle Revolution at the Design Museum in London is an exhibition celebrating remarkable bicycle design, featuring a selection of bikes from across the cycling spectrum.
Our ‘Speed Bike’, is on show as part of the bike builder’s workshop – which shows the tools, materials and skills that combine to create a bespoke machine. Donhou is one of just six independent British bike builders to be featured, so we feel really honoured.
Needless to say it’s a pretty special feeling to see our bike included among some really historic machines; from those that have broken the Hour Record (Eddy Merckx’ from 1972 & Sir Bradley Wiggins’ from 2015), to the Lotus Type 108 ridden by Chris Boardman at the 1992 Olympics – not to mention our personal favourite, the original Specialized Stumpjumper!
For more on the Speed Bike, check out the film ‘Experiments in Speed‘ by Spindle Productions. Or head down and check it out yourself – Cycle Revolution runs until 30 June 2016 at the Design Museum in London.
