This year for Eurobike, ENVE contacted one of their favorite British frame builders to design a bike for their booth. Harry from Field Cycles is best known (over here in the US anyway) for bright paint and his unique tubing selection. Both of which were turned a few notches for this unique bike.
Check out more photos and full tubing specs below! (more…)
I absolutely love frame builder profile videos, especially when they’re of shops I’ve never visited. This one features Matthew Sowter of Saffron Frameworks out of London.
We’re a big fan of hardtail MTBs over here. They’re easy to make domestically, easy to maintain, lightweight and best of all, with the right geometry and components, you can take on just about any trail. Stanton Bikes in the UK show us how it’s done on their new Switchback 631.
Two mates attempted to ride the length of Great Britain during the coldest March on record in 54 years…
Charge delivers a bugga’ of a good time video featuring their new Cooker 27+ MTB. I love all the Australianisms.
Coming off the Eroica California and the Emilio De Marchi rides, I’m kind of bummed to be missing this year’s Eroica Britannia. Last year’s event was a ton of fun, so if you were on the fence about attending, head over to the 2014 Eroica Britannia Reportage… If you are planning on going, head over to Eroica Britannia to sign up!
… and Cotic Bikes agrees!
Death Spray Custom’s “Deadly Sin” fork collection continues with envy, a snakeskin pattern rendered in neon hulk, poisonous metallic snake green and glock metal black. If you’ve ever wanted one of these pieces of art, now’s your chance. Head over to Death Spray Custom for ordering.
… a real wild one. The new Cooker 27+ is handmade in the UK by Ted James Design. Available in September.
Juliet did a nice feature on Caren Hartley of Hartley Cycles in the UK over at the Brooks England Blog. She was the first and only builder at Bespoke, which is an achievement in it of itself, yet from the looks of her work, she deserves that award for Best Utility Bike!
