Rogers Bespoke for Treadly

The world’s best professional cyclists have started to descend on South Australia’s capital city of Adelaide in preparation for the Santos Tour Down Under — the first leg of the UCI World Tour.

One man who knows those hills very well, and has the common sense to ride over them at a more leisurely pace, is Sam Neeft, proprietor of Adelaide’s best little bike shop, Treadly.

Rebecca J Kaye is a designer and illustrator whose favourite riding is located in and around Scotland. Her work is sharp, bold, big and iconic — and mainly draws inspiration from her cycling adventures. Her latest project is called Middle of Nowhere, a stark travelogue of photography, stories and products as beautiful and sparse as the Scottish Highlands they are drawn from. Read More »

Field Cycles Super Record Road

Most Britons with any interest in popular music will recognise the name of Keane, the synthpop group whose albums have topped charts on both sides of the Atlantic and have been voted by Q Magazine readers as among the Best British Albums ever, alongside Radiohead, The Beatles and Oasis.

As it turns out, Keane’s drummer, Richard Hughes, loves cycling, and recently contracted Sheffield’s own Field Cycles for a bespoke build. They responded as only they know how: with a superbly crafted steel frame decorated with dazzling paintwork to match. Read More »
