This is the exciting project hatched by Pete and Rob back in 2007 and is being developed to launch in the Spring of 2011. We are bringing bicycle manufacturing to the Ironbridge Gorge, based at the current Jackfield site.
Full details will be announced in due course, but some of the key highlights are:
Bespoke frames hand-built by Pete and Rob will be re-introduced, detailed one offs built one at a time.
Frame building courses, for clients to build their own frame and learn an insight into the skills required in this art. It is planned to start both the bespoke frames and frame building courses in Late March so we are taking commissions and bookings now.
The Landescape range of made to measure aluminium tandems to be expanded to include 'single' bikes and some steel and titanium models.
A larger range of specialist bicycles and tandems to be sold from £1000 upwards including: Van Nicholas, Tout Terrain, Reise & Müller Birdy, Airnimal, Ridgeback, Genesis, Principia, Co-Motion, Helios and KHS tandems.
Selected high quality parts and accessories.
A fleet of the bikes and tandems for hire and test ride made up from the bikes that we sell, not just for a day but a weekend or week by self led tours around Ironbridge Gorge and beautiful Shropshire countryside. A percentage of the hire cost to be refunded when an order is placed.
As mentioned the Bicycle Hub will operate as normal along side Bicycles by Design until the 'The Bicycle Hub in the Park opens'.
