The last three frames to emerge from the Yorkshire workshop of Ricky Feather have been a departure from his usual repertoire: we’ve seen a striking mixte and an internal-hubbed, disc-braked all-rounder. The third is Hin’s single speed – the latest indicator of a fresh direction for Feather Cycles.
Hin’s is an elegant steed that once again demonstrates Ricky’s ability to produce a modern bike that gives a nod to the proud tradition of the English hand made bicycle. The paint, as close to MINI’s Horizon Blue Metallic as you’d like, conceals numerous features such as a hand-carved bi-lam head tube and a custom rear brake cable boss. The fork crown hasn’t escaped Ricky’s files either, and he added pivots for the Paul Components Racer brakes as well.
Kayti Peschke has, as always, perfectly photographed Ricky’s work. I would personally love to take this for a cruise through the Yorkshire Dales and I’m sure Hin is over the moon with his new Feather Cycle. See more Feather Cycles on the blog and flickr stream.
