Around The Shop
I’ve had a go on this and it’s got to be one of the best things ever. I’m getting a motorbike, hopefully one
Ted builds for me haha. SO MUCH POWERRR. So Ted got this bike and took it all apart, before rebuilding it
and making/replacing parts – loving the WD40 air intake. TJD
Uploaded a few new photographs of ma whip to the tumblr the other day, thought I should let yers have a look.
Current setup includes the new 14bikeco tig-welded track frame, sugino 75s, goltec hubs to rigida dp18 rims,
rolling on continental tyres. Other than that I’ve got a 14bikeco concor saddle, a pink reflector, vans waffle grips
and some pee rust.
The frame, although a pretty substantial change from the ESB setup I had before (R.I.NYC) is really awesome,
super light and responsive and easy to go mad fast on, and it’s also Copper plated, which is pretty radical. I’ll
get some more info on these frames, should pull together a proper press release at some point, but I can tell
you they’re pretty rad and should be surprisingly affordable, I’ve really enjoyed mine so far

Yep I miss the old shop too and for those people harking to the old days of a full-faced 14bikeco shop, the new one’s
on the way! Hopefully we’ll be open within a month or two, thanks for bearing with us. By the way we’re still contactable
most days through the old shop, you may have noticed we’ve kept the workshop area/store room/offices…
a few photos I took when around the shop the other week, new ESBs going out, a few other frames chilling ‘pon the counter, you know
I uploaded these photos onto my tumblr from the other week when I was chilling in Ted’s workshop – some of his awesome air pump tools (some extra blowy ones) as well as the new stem he has been working on, I’m so going to get one for my new bike! Anyway check it out and I’ll try and put up the details for the new Ted James Design stems as soon as possible
Apple have just signed up to the cyle to work scheme (sick!) and Mary Beth took advantage of the scheme (which can practically half the price of a build with us – more info HERE). Mary was stoked on the whole handbuilt element of the bikes, and even got involved in building her own wheels. The build turned out lovely too, John was there to take photos on his apple snapper phone
Just a little update on what’s happening at the moment at 14bikeco. As some of you will know we still inhabit the office and store room in the Truman Brewery shop, and John can still be found there most days, sorting out web orders and going through custom builds with customers. The plan at the moment is to strengthen the distribution, wholesale and webshop side of things at 14bikeco, bring out a new frameset real soon (mad excited, I’m getting one!) whilst still offering custom orders on appointment, before moving into a new space nearby. Until we do, this is the man you want to talk to:
This is John Wainright, he is an awesome guy and he makes things happen at 14bikeco. As I said we’re offering our custom build service by appointment now, so if you want to do something kinda special or even just want to chat about the possibility of getting your own special bicycle drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and John will tell you when’s good to swing around to the Truman Brewery for a chat
That’s all for now, hold tight for this new frameset coming out extra soon, I’m stoked on it and I’m sure you will too…
P.S. Love you John xxx
