Just a short note to remind everyone that during the Olympics and the Paralympics, there will be only very limited opening hours. During that time, we hope to improve the workshop and will be on call for various Olympic events (coaching/seeing it/etc.). Please check out the availablility page or email me for more details. Many thanks and enjoy the Olimpics!
We received our first Espresso rims! They are super cool & robust. I have put a photo up on our facebook page but will put a better one up soon. In addition, Gregg's Starwar's Stormtrooper themed bike is nearly read to be seen in public. Photos of that soon as well.
Outr facebook page can be seen here.
Happy post Easter! Now back to work and start to burn off all the chocolate. We received a commision to build a bike suitable for a teenager to rough it and still look good. So, a suitable frame was found and the RWK elves got to work. The result is shown below. There is room for him to grow and we can always increase the spec'.
RWK's facebook page includes some new thoughts, including an idea on road safety. Follow us here! The post Easter contemplations will continue - perhaps even with the start of the RWK Cup(s), at Capel Gym, for the fastest 10 miler on an excercise bike.
All the best everyone!

An RWK client is looking to sell his 1970s Claud Butler Coureur. It is a medium (21" seat tube, 20" top tube). The bike comes with an early Shimano Altus LT gearset and GB alloy stem. We haven't been able to date the frame yet but will have more details soon.
