Spoken (formerly HBSA) is all wrapped up for another year, but you can bet many bikes are still waiting to be discussed.

In this second part (of three), we look at Aussie-made bikes and gear from Prova Cycles, Woods Bicycle Co, G-Duke, TOR, and VeloCraft. Additionally, we have some interesting stock-build titanium options from Bossi and Simpatico. All this and more awaits.

Don’t miss part one of our Spoken 2024 coverage. You can also find all of our coverage from the 2023 HBSA edition here.

Another maker based in Melbourne, Tia of Framework Designs returned to the show with a collection of practical bags. Pictured is the Handlebar Snack Pack (AU$159) which offers both rolltop and zippered access (via the rear of the bag).
It’s not just boutique Aussie makers attending Spoken. Swiss-brand ARC8 was present via its Australian distributor EightyOneSpices. Shown here is the company’s Evolve FS cross-country bike.
Penny Farthing Dan is truly a maker’s maker. As Highwheeler parts are hardly production items, Dan makes just about everything you see on the bike, including the tyres, rims, saddle, and spokes. In the case of this road-going build, Dan has fitted a special-edition CaneCreek eeBrake for assisted control over the front wheel. These bikes are made to be ridden.
Abbey Bike Tools is now producing a few items from its acquired Noble Wheels collection. These bearing removers are an item I’ve covered previously that offer some unique advantages.
Last year Simpatico showed a bike with a lot of Cerakote finishing. Now the company is offering such parts under sibling Nvisage, including a collection of Cerakote rotors and lockrings.
