Single Speed Edinburgh

I recently purchased one of Danny's many excellent bikes and couldn't be happier. The build quality is tremendous and Danny went above a beyond to get me the right bike. If you are looking to get back to pure cycling without gears and also looking for a truly unique bike I would highly recommend Single speed Edinburgh. The only trouble is picking which bike to take home.

Absolutely love my Raleigh Racer! The vintage frame (Reynolds 501) is in brilliant condition and gives it such character! They really knew how to make bike frames back then - the frame is sturdy and the custom build by Single Speed makes it a dream to ride! The bike I got is black with red decals, but the other bikes come in really bright colours - fantastic and varied choice of detailing and features, would highly recommend!
