14 Bike Co Relaunches with New Models

Known primarily for their track bikes, UK-based 14 Bike Co recently relaunched their website and along with it, a new lineup of frames. While staying true to their track roots with the 14R, the brand has dived into dirt with a new 29r hardtail and multiple cyclocross models.

I could go on about how great this lineup looks, but you should just go see the full UK-made range for yourself at the new 14 Bike Co.

Check out more of this black and orange beaut at the Firefly Flickr!
