Ricky Feather is one of the UK’s most prominent BMX riders, and is known for executing manoeuvres that, lately, have been the inspiration for fixed gear freestylers. Surprisingly, he’s also the builder of some of the most refined hand made frames coming out of the British Isles.
This is a low profile track pursuit frame for a Dutch customer who, needless to say, was more than satisfied with the result. The elongated angles of the lo-pro accentuate the simplicity of the track frame, but from a rear perspective it seems to have been pared back to anorexic dimensions. Constructed with Reynolds 853, 725 and a Columbus Zona aero down tube, however, is sufficient assurance that this frame will provide years of service.
Each frame that Ricky produces is further evidence that he is destined to become a respected name in the hand made bicycle world. His ‘Feather’ logotype on the down tube only serves to give the impression of lithe agility and the ability to grant the gift of flight. Keep an eye on his blog for the latest installment. Thanks to Kati Peschke for the excellent photography.
