Two sexy custom builds for sale



These two builds are ideal Winter bikes.


The Singular Osprey is £1400 equipped with Halo Aerorage wheels and sram Rival groupset. A stunning build like this is ideal on sportives and winter rides. The steel tubing will leave you begging for more road and equipped with Sram and Halo wheels the weight of the bike will be the last thing you have to worry about. For me its a dream bike, I'v got my sights set on a build like this next! 


The Cargo Dream Machine comes in at whopping £1700 but comes with a Brooks saddles and grips, Paul brakes a White Industries crank. It also comes with a Sturmey Archer S2 kickback hub laced to Velocity Deep V's. Its a posh build to say the least but a steel bike like this is a bike for life. 


Both these builds are available in store and can be build in any size depending on frame stock.

Interview with GIANT President Tony Lo on FT


Like everything else in the world the majority of our bicycles and bicycle components are made in China. Including our own Tokyo Fixed bikes. Last year when visiting our frame factory I also visited the far larger factories of Kalloy and VP. I'v never released the photos from that visit but this video gives you a small insight into those factories and an interesting point of view from the chief exec of the worlds largest bicycle manufacturer GIANT.

Le Coq Sportif Tour De France Jerseys



Two things you may not know; 1. Le Coq Sportif are the main sponsor of this years Tour De France. 2. Le Coq Sportif made jerseys for Tour De France riders up until the early nineties. So the pressure is on for the first range of race jerseys they've done in almost twenty years. Today I was lucky enough to check out the jerseys they are doing for this years tour. They are super slick with a subtle collar and 3/4 hidden zip. Unfortunately they won't be available to the public until 2013, the silver lining is that they are doing a whole range of TDF clothing which we will be stocking which will be hitting the shop in May.
