Our vast collection of classic & vintage steel frames, on the ceiling of The Hackney Peddler store in Stoke Newington, London.

bespoke bicycles

Our bikes are built to order and combine all the benefits of classic steel craftsmanship with those of modern precision componentry. We can build a custom machine to your spec or carry out a full restoration, true to its original glory. So to build your perfect Sunday Best spinner, an 'around town' single speed or a workhorse winter commuter, pick your frame and follow our custom build process.

Choice components

Pick your poison. We currently stock six build options, with more variants available soon. So if it's a reliable Shimano R7000 group you need for a winter trainer or period correct L'Eroica build options, we're here to make sure your custom build meets your criteria.

Our professional workshop takes pride in being able to fix everything, serving our local community of Stoke Newington and keeping you rolling.

My local bike shop - friendly service and you aren’t sniffed at for not having a £1,000 bike. Knowledgeable advice and you don’t get the feeling that they are trying to sell you something. Have been a few times now for service and repairs and buying accessories and each time it was a great experience. Can only recommend this place.


Solid dudes, bought many a bike from them. If you want a classy steel bike, check them out. Refurbs, customs, classics, singlespeed, geared, track etc. With the mechanical know-how to back it up. Steel is real 🤟🏼


They built me a new bike using a reclaimed frame (which was resprayed a colour of my choice) and all the parts from my old bike. The best recycled cycle. After care brilliant and they do the cycle to work scheme. Very happy.


This is THE place to go in London. The Hackney Peddler team know their stuff like nobody else and are really interested in helping you out, making your bike look beautiful and ride like a dream. The mechanics are absolutely on it... ...Thanks again guys, hope to see you soon!


Really friendly and knowledgeable service team here. Super happy with all work done. Beautiful collection of frames and bikes in store too.


This has been my local bike shop for a few years now and wanted to share some love. Just stopped by for them to sort out a punctured tire. I enjoyed chatting to the staff while I waited for my bike- they are always super friendly and welcoming!


My favourite bike shop, due to fantastic service and a charming retired greyhound - don't hesitate to call me if Monty needs a dog walker. Looking forward to splashing out on a new helmet there soon.


I hardly ever write reviews but just had a great experience at Hackney Peddler. They looked at my bike and fixed it on the spot for a very reasonable price. I had actually just taken the bike to another local shop but was told I would need to book a full service for them to look at the issue, so glad that I came here instead. As a female beginner cyclist, I really appreciated their friendly customer service too (not something that is always common in Hackney bike shops!).


Could not be happier with my new bike! Custom built one, painted in the exact colour I wanted. Very friendly service and they really took the time to help me with what I was looking for. Definitely recommended!
