Sneak Peek: 14 Bike Company Shop



There's a new fixed gear boutique opening in London soon, 14 Bike Company. And it looks pretty nice. 

Don't ask me for coordinates because I don't know although I'm guessing Brick Lane or thereabouts is the direction. Also, if I got this right, they will be only selling their own '14 Bike Co' house-brand track bikes built-up by themselves, and maybe framesets too.

Yurk! It look like a big wal-mart but for fixed gear!....

It's at the back of the Truman Brewery at Brick Lane.

I walked past it the other day and they were working late to have things set up in time.

I didn't think much of the frames in the store, but what appeared to be their bikes were pure HHSB porn.

Frames from the heart of England can't be that bad.

Not sure what all the hating is about.

New shop,

Selling good things,

Interests new people,

No problem.

Sitting around making sarky, small minded comments ain't big or clever. It's Daily Mail mentality in a pair of Van's - do one.

As the blog author I feel compelled to say this:

Chill out everyone please.

It's just a bike shop, that's all. Surely having a new shop specializing on FG stuff cannot be bad if it manages to bring some competition to the prices of other similar shops. Right?

And ok, I can see that the 'trendy boutique'-style applied by the guys behind the said business venture does not appeal to everyone but then again, no one's forced to visit to that place anyway.
