James Greig’s Single Speed
Commuter

James Greig is Cyclelove and he wanted this bespoke bicycle to reflect it. James Greig’s single speed is a commuter bike for the streets of London and the occasional longer country ride. James gave me a fair amount of freedom in designing this bike but stipulated the size of tubing and wanted something simple and classical. James followed the build in great detail with his camera and words. (www.cyclelove.net/2012/12/the-cyclelove-bike-day-1-of-the-build/)
