April is here, the sun is shining and we are all considering getting our shorts out…

You may have noticed we are finally putting new stock up for sale, it’s a miracle. We have been adding lots of lovely complete bicycles, amazing frames and rare vintage parts. The plan is to keep doing this so that you, our devoted customers, can buy the amazing bike parts and bicycles that we keep hidden in blue boxes and on racks.

Dr Ronke came to us yesterday and bought this wonderful town bicycle with swept back bars to get her to and from hospital in style. Click here to find your perfect summer bicycle.

For those of you after a exciting adventure this summer, L’Eroica is fast approaching. L’Eroica is a vintage bicycle race that takes place in Italy and excitingly this year there is a UK version as well. The Italian L’Eroica is in September and the UK L’Eroica is in June. There are a number of different routes depending on how far you want to go and how many hills and mountains you want to climb, the main rule of the ride is that your cycle has to pre date 1987.  Last year we made dozens of bicycles for it and this year we have just finished our 10th. It is a 1970′s Bianchi fitted with Vintage Campagnolo all over. This bicycle came to us a bit of a wreck, we have sensitively restored it, we kept the frames original worn paintwork, we just removed the rust cleaned it then clear coated it to preserve that amazing authentic aged Bianchi look. We think it looks rather special.
