saffron frameworks

At Saffron Frameworks, we create beautiful and functional bicycles by understanding first, who you are and what you want from your bicycle. We design frames which fit your cycling goals and your geometry. And we turn that into an aesthetically attractive frame.  We believe in turning your ideas into designs, and those designs into truly awesome bicycles, making you the perfect traveling partner on two wheels.  Primarily we built with steel but throw a bit of carbon into the mix from time to time. Each one of our frames is unique, made with our own hands.

Spray.Bike

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 james design

Ted James Design was founded in 2010 by Ted ‘Superted’ James. 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. Ted builds all kinds of bikes (MTB, BMX, CX, Road, Touring, Track, Town) in steel, stainless steel and titanium, from custom-built one-offs and prototypes to small batches of frames. He also makes bars, forks and racks and machines a lot of his own parts for his own builds and for other framebuilders, including head tubes and bottom bracket shells. Ted’s bikes, which have been described as “future collectables”, are all hand made in the UK by Ted.

T J Cycles - Flying Gate

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.

Titici

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.
