Feather Cycles Single Speed

Feather Cycles Hin's SS

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.

    Lovely…

    Favourite detail: Eyelets inside the fork legs. Functional, but hidden from plain sight.

    so clean and i love the paul comps!

  • fpavao

    Beautiful frame. The mix between lugs and fillet brazing looks great.

    But why every hype bike needs chris king components and a brooks saddle?? wtf.

    Also, centerpull brakes again?

  • Semilog

    Otherwise, how would you know it’s a hype bike instead of just a sweet ride?
