Britons maintain a great pride in their domestic industry, despite a significant chunk of it migrating off shore — a plight experienced by many first world nations. Thankfully, Enigma Cycles, based in rural Sussex, are dedicated to continuing the esteemed British bicycle building tradition.
Tokyo Fixed, London’s premier bike boutique, contributed a set of Richard Sachs Newvex lugs to this build by Enigma, an ‘Edge’ track frame sets. It premiered at Bespoked Bristol last year — the UK Handmade Bicycle Show. True to their heritage, Enigma fittingly completed the frame in Reynolds 853.
It’s a show-stopper, not just because of the ornate lug work. The paint is striking also, executed by London’s Spray Shack. The colors were inspired, according to Tokyo Fixed, by Japanese brands such as Everest and Tohei. Head to Tokyo Fixed for information on how to purchase an Edge frame set.
