Cycling Plus - - THE HUB -

Moss Bikes started as an ad­junct to founder An­drew Jones’s ca­reer as a teacher, though he made his first frame aged just 14. The bike shown was con­structed us­ing Colum­bus tub­ing – his prize for win­ning the Best Track Bike ti­tle at hand­made bi­cy­cle show, Be­spoked, in 2015 – and was rid­den by Anna Glowin­ski at the 2016 Red Hook Lon­don cri­terium. Chicken Cy­cles supplied parts in­clud­ing the Miche Pis­tard wheels, with Lan­cashire-based Hope man­u­fac­tur­ing the match­ing head­set, spac­ers and stem. The 100 per cent made-in-the-USA Wound Up car­bon fork rounds things off.
