Many things are wrong with the nation’s capital, but the custom bike culture isn’t one of them. In the fourth issue of Built we celebrate the custom bike scene in London with a visit to the iconic Bike Shed in Shoreditch to catch up with founder, Dutch, to hear about the first 12 months of the company’s new HQ.
We visit Vagabond, a bike-friendly tattoo studio in Hackney and while we’re there, stop for coffee at Dark Arts and Black Skulls – a mongrel of a clothing shop, workshop and bike club that lurks unseen in the backstreets of the East End.
There’s a show report from the Revival Cycles Show in Texas and we get the heads up on Deus Ex Machina’s 2017 clothing range.
