Dry powder coating - in a rattle can!
Spray.Bike was created out of frustration with existing products. If you’re not an experienced pro, it’s so difficult to use metal or car spray paint on bikes. It drips and dribbles and is extremely hard to control. And professional electrostatic or powder coating can get super expensive.At Vicious Cycles Athens, while trying to repair a damaged frame using a standard RAL spray, we were so disappointed with the results that we phoned up the manufacturer, “Well what do you want the paint to do?” was the reply.After 2 years of development, Spray.Bike was the answer.
Made in Athens, Greece

Ted started building frames eight years ago and has since made a name for himself as a top builder, winning awards at Bespoked in 2013 and 2016 and being chosen by Reynolds to build the first 921 stainless frame for testing.

Home of the iconic ‘Flying Gate’. This groundbreaking design was the brainchild of the Baines brothers who worked for Jowett Cars in Bradford back in the 1930s. The idea is as valid now as it was then - a super short wheelbase producing a responsive ride whilst maintaining an optimal riding position for power. Over the last 40 years Trevor Jarvis has owned sole rights to build this classic frame with its detailed lugged construction. In 2017, after building over 600 ‘Gates’, he passed the license to Liz Colebrook of Beaumont Bicycle.

the steel bicycle project
The International Bicycle Engineering Research Group (IBERG) is a collection of engineers and scientists who are active in the field of academic and industrial research relating to bicycles. Founded in 2014, IBERG aims to promote the technical aspects of bicycle engineering and to generate new knowledge in this field. At Bespoked 2019, IBERG will launch the steel bicycle project (TSBP) which aims to raise awareness of key engineering and scientific principles that relate to steel bicycle design and through this project IBERG aims to work with the community of frame builders to help them gain access to useful scientific measurements.
Passion and intuitive innovation are combined in a unique production method that creates higher-performing frames. Each element is individually produced. A resin slowly penetrates deep into the fibres with each sequential wrap and ensures that every bond is strong. It’s a process that requires patience, but it’s worth the effort.
Bicycles from Titici are precisely tailored to each rider and their riding style. Because every rider is different. And every bike should be too.
