I’ve always had a hankering for another 26” steel bike - had a history with Pashleys and Leesons. From what I can see Dominic Raab has had a handle in some new bikes a 24” and 26” steel bike. I can’t seem to find much out about them though - anyone know anymore about the venture?

The frames look quite Marino-y to me? Not sure if they're just some Marino frames with some different branding, sold on through Dominik? May be totally wrong on that though...

That's mainly coming from this photo:

Nah, can't be a Marino, that photo is all wrong. It'd be more like this.

I jest...

Just looks like another blatant direct copy of a certain premium brand, but with catalogue dropouts? I'm not sure the Marino ones are that neat.

 


Edit: Looks like Mark's right: "Handgeschweisst von Marino Bikes in Peru"

Good to know that Dominik, @Ali C and @ben_travis all have viable modelling career options open to them with DFS once they hang their bikes up for good.

Brilliant photo shop skills haha. Literally laughed out loud at this. 
 

definitely similar to my Marino, drop outs are identical with the built in bolts for chain tension adjustment.

To be fair the second photo was me for just over 9 months haha, literally conceived and had a child before the order arrived.

I hoped they were made somewhere else ... :-(

Is there any street/trial 26" steel frame using a decent tubing set?
