New British brand Trillion Cycles has launched a range of bikes that are made in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. The range was on display at the London Bike Show held at ExCeL last Thursday – Sunday.
We’ve reported on Trillion before. The brand, supported by Sanjeev Gupta’s Liberty House group, plans to increase the UK content of its bikes as the group’s manufacturing businesses expand the capability to produce the parts.
The bikes on display in London, only completed the day before the show opened, were all steel framed although titanium and carbon-fibre bikes are planned. Here are three of them.
The Delta (both of the above bikes are Deltas) is described as “a handbuilt, versatile 1x11 gravel bike constructed from high quality Reynolds 631 steel”. It is designed to take 40mm tyres and the frameset is £1,350. Complete builds cost from £2,500.
The Zeta is a road frame made from Reynolds 631. It takes tyres up to 28mm. The frameset is £1,500 with complete builds from £2,800.
The Node is an urban singlespeed made from Reynolds 525 steel. Framesets are £750 with complete builds available from £1,300.
The Trillion Cycles website is up and running although it still lacks details on the individual models. The plan is for those to be added over the next couple of weeks.
