James Kennedy at Kennedy City Bicycles

From his workshop in Clapton, James Kennedy assembles stylish urban single speed bicycles to order under the watchful eye of his gentle Great Dane, Huxley. His mission is to spread the cycling bug by providing attractive, affordable bikes for people who haven’t yet taken the plunge. He hand selects the components and offers a variety of colours and styles. By only selling direct through the website he can keep overheads low, allowing him to invest more in the quality of the components for each bike. Since he opened for business at the start of the summer things have taken off and he is now building over 10 bicycles a week.
