Last month a good friend of mine decided to do an out of blue photo shoot with me. You should check out his blog. He is an amazing guy too!
As we got back late last night from Bespoked Bristol, it meant that Mikey could not get his bike built up overnight. That meant that while he was at work today I got to mess about and throw ridiculous wheels on his 14R! I like my bikes to be subtle and it was strange to ride around London on such a head turning bike all day. One thing is for sure though, no one can miss you on this as it’s about as hi-vis as you can get. – Æ
Here is my new 14R Low Pro in Fluro yellow, with Royce dropouts and Reynolds 853 double butted aero tubing. This year we have changed the down tube decals and also each bike has a date of when it was made and also a personal number, the standard colour is still matte black and frame price is £795, two carbon fork options available. I am very pleased of the out come of this bike frame and can’t wait to ride it. If you want more info please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Yesterday, snow was falling hard into London city. I was around central and meet with Andy to go say hi to John from 14Bikeco, we did everything to stay warm while riding and keeping the snow flakes out of our face! Lucky I just got my new Dickies Pullover jacket that made me warm for the ride. But the snow and wind kept hitting hard, so stop over to some coffee shop and had to warm up! spring is taking it’s time to come round.
Fighting the snow.
Sunday gone, me and Moses had a little ride to Richmond, the weather was chilled but it didn’t stop us. The road in the park was wet and I had a little slipped on the mini round about, it kinda sucks when you have to ride back trying not to put pressure on your bad wrist. We saw a lots of road bike’s trying to beat their time around the park, going up and down the hill’s to be on top of strava challenges!
That feeling when you see the ground that close to you, sucks!
2 new things about the latest 14R Track End…
1. the Royce logo is now CNC’d slightly deeper because the paint was filling it in too much.
2. the frame/track end No#. Which is engraved on the underside of each left hand side track end!
I took inspiration from the way that Shimano date each of their products.
This is how it works:
A = 2012 (the year production of these Royce 14R track ends began)
J = October (the 10th month / 10th letter of the alphabet)
012 = Product Number (which means there is only 11 14R frame set’s in existence, so far!)
Each 14R is tailor made for each of the people that choose to purchase one from 14bikeco.
I’m going to be putting aside No#23 for myself… Æ
