And the winner is . . .

Russell Stout and Rob Penn

Congratulations to Stewart Ferrie of Lanarkshire MTB club in winning one of our first production frames, having been chosen out of around 200 people to complete our online survey in the latter part of 2011.

Rob Penn (author of It’s all about the bike) kindly took time out of his busy schedule at Bespoked to do the draw – pictured above. Having been whisked around all the builders as part of the judging panel he was obviously feeling a bit ‘overwhelmed’ by things by the time he joined us for the draw.

We’d also like to say a big thank you to everyone else that took part in the survey and helped persuade us we were on the right track of building steel production frames in the UK. We were taken aback at the passion most people have for steel bikes and we hope to match those expectations with the type of frames we want to build.

Look out for some more photography of our new frames on the website in the next couple of days.
