Custom frames from UK

14 posts in this topic

Hey, I have a freind who is looking for a company here in UK who makes custom frames for a Fixie.

Is there any? or will JAF start making frames later on again?

Ricky Feather is a former pro BMXer who turned frame builder - the stuff he makes is awesome: http://www.feathercycles.com/

There's also a guy called Ted James who lives down in London - another former sponsored rider turned frame builder, he's made rad shit too: http://www.tedjamesdesign.com/

Both of those guys are fairly specialised in making fixie/road-bike frames so should be able to help out.

As Mark said. Feather are renowned for their quality, don't expect jaf prices though.

Also check out woodrup cycles in Leeds.

Even if WIP bikes were still around, I would urge anybody considering a frame to steer well clear whether they were charging £500 or £5. Truly awful in every aspect.

I assume that WIP stands for Work In Progress...

That 'Ted James Designs' guy won the Peer Award from Bespoked as it happens (Y)

Or you can get a Ti one built for less by the nice guys at Triton. That's if you aren't 100% set on one from the UK.

I also heard they will soon be doing Reynolds and maybe Columbus steel frames.

Haha, that photo's classic. Only met Ted a couple of times, but he was f**king sound. That was a while ago when he and a bunch of other people were living in some converted storage space with a pretty amazing setup they built themselves, and he was just getting into doing more frame building type stuff. Cool to see how far he's taken it!

That was a pretty cool video (Y)

Absolutely, completely, f**k putting your leg under that machine at any point though!
