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, 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.
This shop looks great! It opened last week but haven’t had time to go to the opening or even to pop in and have a look around, but, after seeing these photos I will make sure I go and have a nose around this weekend.
My friend Marc told me it was gonna look good and have some pretty rad bits but I wasn’t imagining such a fantastic result.
Good job guys
“It’s been just under a year since the last DSC shop was online. The planets have aligned, the shamans have spoken and lady luck has blessed us with a new set of products. Two new tees, the first sweatshirt and some other goodies.” – DSC
When in Chicago last month I was fortunate enough to hang out and spend some time with Heritage Bicycles. I love what these guys are doing and took the opportunity to ask them a few questions about their store, own branded bikes and position within Chicago.

Google maps has a pretty cool feature which means businesses can opt in to having their premises photographically mapped and placed on Google Maps. Sigma Sport in London has just done this so you can go digitally drool.
One of my favorite brands Restrap have been very busy lately with a new website and lots of quality new product. Head over to the site to be in with a chance of winning a limited edition Overkill crew neck and a Ted James Design custom stem. Nice work guys!
