Isambard’s Cycles specialises in custom builds on classic British frames dating from the 1930s to the 1990s. We build our bikes sympathetically; choosing quality vintage components over newly made alternatives, preferring the aesthetic, the durability, and the reliability of so many older parts.
The shop was founded on the idea that a bicycle shop should be a place where all are welcome and every person and every bicycle is treated as an individual. We stand in direct opposition to the idea of a bicycle shop as a catalogue showroom, instead aspiring to an older, more personal approach to business.
We were established on the Bethnal Green Road in 2013, a In Oct 2016, we moved to a bigger premises just around the corner at 240 Brick Lane, E2 7EB.
Isambard’s remains independent and unaffiliated.
