 A Design Revolution...

“Most bicycles are fundamentally the same... and its about time someone mixed things up a little”. This was the view we shared back in 2013 when we first started sketching and developing new bike designs. We wanted to design a bike that was cool and different, but at the same was simple in its design and delivered excellent ride quality and control. At a time when fixed gear/single speed bikes are so popular, we knew we needed to come up with a bike that was truly unique and one that cyclists would be proud of riding. Judging by the response from both the industry and public we certainly believe we have met these ambitions. 

We have been delighted with the response and support from all across the cycling spectrum and we would really like to thank those people who have shown their support, whether it be a comment on Instagram or a passing word of encouragement on the street. They have all spurred us on and helped make this bike a reality.

What People Say...

It is genuinely difficult to express the overwhelming response we have had from both the industry and public. The amount of appreciation and interest in the bike has been absolutely fantastic and we are pleased that people are so enthusiastic and welcoming of the bike’s design. 

In owning one of these framesets or indeed bikes, one thing you will notice immediately are the constant looks and verbal appreciation you get from fellow cyclists and members of the public. It might sound a bit strange but its a great way to meet people as I fail to count the number of people from all warps of life that have stopped me to chat, ask questions or take photos of the bike. Its pretty cool riding through a park or road and hearing the people you pass comment on the bike. 

Following our attendance at the Excel London Bike Show back in February we have been manufacturing the bike to order and in small quantities for mainly UK individuals and bike shops. We are using Kickstarter because we would like to expand our manufacturing and offer this unique bike to a much wide audience.

Riding a Sync

It is not only the reaction/appreciation from members of the public that makes owning a Sync bicycle a unique experience, but it is also the special ride quality of the bike/frame. The 'double S" shaped frame has been painstakingly developed to deliver strength and stability, but at the same time allow some natural flexibility, which has become a favoured quality of the bike for those who have ridden one.

 Size...

Please use the below sizing chart to determine which bike frame will suit you best. We will contact you after the campaign has finished to confirm the size of your framese or bike.

Delivery

We have experience with delivering bicycles to all parts of the world using our well known and respected couriers (UPS, FedEx TNT and Parcelforce). We are committed to ensuring fast and affordable delivery to all parts of the world. If your country is not on our dropdown list, then please get in touch and we will provide you with the cost of delivery. 

We Need Your Support 

We hope you are inspired and excited about supporting Sync Bicycles. We have developed and refined the bike and have sold them in small quantities around the UK, but with your support we hope to increase production and make this big! We would be so thankful if you helped support the campaign and shared the project with your friends and family. Thank you!

Risks and challenges

We have been in the bike building business for over 8 years and are well experienced with the production, manufacturing and distribution requirements involved. Having finalised and tested the design some time ago we have been producing the frameset/bike in small quantities to order for the past 6 months. All the tooling and set up is already in place, which means we can build your bike with confidence and time efficiency. The bike frames themselves are made in our workshop in the industrial steel heartland of Sheffield UK before being powder coated and assembled in London. As you can see are aiming to get the bikes and other rewards out to our supporters as soon as possible so they can start enjoying them sooner rather than later.

We will continue to keep you involved with the manufacturing and distribution of the rewards and will keep you updated on how everything is going. If you have any questions/concerns please feel free to contact us directly.
