Is there anything more British than a hardcore steel hardtail? There’s another new brand keeping up the tradition that launched yesterday at the London Bike Show. Meet Trillion Cycles and their first foray into mountain biking with the Prime hardtail.
Hailing from Leamington Spa, the brand made their name with fixie bikes built for zooming round city streets. Thankfully there’s nothing hipster about these rides, steel, 160mm, big clearance and big attitude bikes makes us sure they will be a hit with the British market.
These guys also aren’t a cottage industry style set up though. They have backing from the Liberty Group (who just bought out Tata’s UK operation for £100 million) with the idea of bringing more quality bike production back to the UK. This means their frames are designed, cut, welded and painted all in the Midlands.
