Vintage parts and down tube shifters in keeping with a pre-1987 build. Get in touch for pricing as options vary (NOS and used groupsets available).

Eroica Build Requirements:
  • Classic Pedals with Cages and Straps: A nod to traditional cycling, these pedals are essential for an authentic Eroica experience.
  • Downtube Shifters: Characteristic of vintage bikes, downtube shifters are a defining feature of Eroica bicycles.
  • Externally Routed Brake Cables: In keeping with the style of early 20th-century bicycles, these cables are routed externally, except inside the top tube. 
  • Low Profile Rims with at Least 32 Spokes: True to the era, these rims add both authenticity and robustness to the bike. 
  • Steel Frame Built Before 1987: The heart of an Eroica bike, these frames capture the essence of cycling's golden age. Early alloy frames also qualify, adding to the diversity of the builds. 

While adhering to these classic specifications, Eroica bike builds can vary significantly. From meticulously restored bikes mirroring their original condition to customized versions that blend vintage charm with modern touches, each bike is uniquely tailored to its rider's preferences, yet remains true to the Eroica ethos.
Our Testimonials

 What People Say?

I had a beautiful vintage bike made from parts i chose in the shop. Staff were super helpful and i LOVE my new bike. Thank you, HP! 🙏🏻

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 🤟🏼

Great bunch. Placed an order over the phone for a full build. Sourced what I wanted and kept me up to date throughout the process. Bike was built to a high standard and packaged incredibly well when shipped. Could not be happier. I'd definitely recommend! Cheers

Frequently Ask Questions

Can you build from a frame that I provide?

Yes! Drop us a message or pop in store to chat about your build. 

Can you swap over all the parts from my bike to a new frame?

Yes! We offer full frame-swaps from £120. It's usually best to bring your bike in for a free assessment to determine which parts are compatible with the new frame.

Can I provide some or all of the parts for a build?

Yes! Builds in this case would start from £120.

Do you offer Cycle to Work Schemes on Builds?

Yes! We work with most cycle to work schemes, these are available for both custom builds and pre-built bikes.

Do you offer a guarantee?

Yes! We offer a full 1 years guarantee on the integrity of our frames and core components. Unfortunately, this won't cover punctures.

Do you offer test rides?

Yes! Although every bike we custom build is one of one, we can still provide test rides on our shopfloor bikes. This is a great way to figure what riding position, size, and style suit you best. Always free and no appointments needed.

What's your turnaround time?

Our average turnaround time for a custom build is 2 weeks. This varies a lot throughout the year, so it's best to drop us a message or pop in store for an up to date estimate.

What's the process for Cycle to Work Schemes?

Each scheme is slightly different, but the key steps remain the same. 

First, you'll need a quote. If you're buying a pre-built bike then this is as simple as recording the bike you've chosen and we'll email a quote across to you. If you're buying a custom build then we'll go over the specific build details and agree upon a price. These details will be recorded and then sent across via a quote.

You will then need to use this quote to apply for a voucher for the specific amount quoted. Depending on your employer and the scheme you are using the exact method for doing this will vary. Depending on the company, this part can either take days or sometimes much longer.

Once you have received the voucher, the sooner you are able to get this to us the quicker we can build your bike.
