“At this weekends SPIN London, we’re going to be exhibiting the prototypes for our 2013 frames. Firstly, we’d like to present the new Dart. Popular with both street and track riders, the Dart was already a fine-tuned frame for fast riding, but we’ve made a number of improvements for the new year.
Most obviously, we’ve gone large. The headtube takes a 44mm zero-stack headset, and the top tube and downtube are similarly brutish. We custom sourced the tubing for this frame, no-one else is using tubes this big. This means the weight stays down, but the frame is unbelievably stiff; this complete bike is down to 7.8kg. Our team rider Jacob says it rides more like our S1 than the old Dart, the huge tubes imparting comfort as well as responsiveness.”

“There are bike shops and then there are bike shops; LBSs that provide more than a place to buy and service bikes, a place where you enjoy coming just to spend time with the staff and being part of the buzz. There’s nothing I love more than visiting bike shop that has some character. Something that teaches me about the sport of cycling. In this post we’ve brought together 10 of the coolest bike shops on the planet, sharing their stories and some photos of their spaces.“

“The illustrations take approximately 5 weeks to complete. Each one is made up of hundreds of individual and individual drawings to make up a complete bike. They are all created in Adobe Illustrator making the style 100% vector. This allows me be extremely precise with the art, along with that I am able to give the overall look to the bikes a perfect finish, matching paint, shadows and highlights. The bikes now serve as an archive to a specific period and era in cycling that these athletes competed in.”
