Specialbike is a company in Brighton that takes old bikes and turns them into new bikes. Kind of like ‘Pimp My Cycle’ (the bike above used to be a knackered old Peugeot racer).
You can tell them exactly what you want your dream bike to be like and give them a budget. Then you can pick the colour and type of finish as well as specifiy individual bits and bobs.
It’s just a really nice idea. You bring life back to an old bike as well as getting something completely and utterly unique. Their site also expresses a really nice tone of voice.
I’m going to go and see them on Saturday. I’m dead excited. I’l let you know how I get on.
