#5thBikes

August 31, 2015 | By | No Comments

For those that didn’t know, 5thLDN and 5thNYC have steadily been collating photos of our bike collection under the hashtag #5thBikes.

There’s everything type of bike you could imagine – road, track, touring, tandem, MTB, CX, incomplete, vintage… you name it. There are already over 100 photos but here are a few of my favourites…

No Quarter

November 20, 2013 | By | One Comment

No Quarter Bikes of Leicester might be the new guys in town but they bring together a fully symphony of services…

Based in the heart of Leicestershire, healing United Kingdom, we are based in a small but buzzing workshop where we do everything in-house, from wheel-building to paint-work, all the way through the graphic design, it’s all done in the same place, making sure we can keep everything at the highest quality, for those who accept nothing less. Every member of our team has over 30 years of experience in their field; our wheel-builder has build wheels for team Raleigh, our painter has painted vintage F1 cars, our mechanic has worked alongside Tour De France mechanics.

We are unique because we offer this custom service through every medium of the bike from start to finish. Have your custom frame, custom paint and custom wheels, topped off with carefully selected components, filling your bicycle dreams.

To illustrate this James and the team took on the following project with exceptional results…

The bike is a 1970s British built track frame. It was completely rusted when we got it and a real mess. I originally purchased it through a online forum knowing it was bad (we where looking for something pretty bad to start with, but this was awful!). We acid-dipped the frame and gave it a cool 2 tone paint-job, plumb crazy on the left, lilac on the right. We then added spin-drift metal flake and gold-leaf which was all done by hand, topped off with a super gloss lacquer. The built is NJS inspired using nearly all japanese track components. I think it works really well.
