Slack Cycles-bespoke frames- Notting Hill

Posted on
  • just spotted one of their frames in Bicycle workshops window....yet another new manafacturer ( yay!).....nice work by the look of it...

    and also of potential interest to the shoe fetishists on here, as they are part of/related to a bespoke shoe designers business....bespoke spd compatible George boots anyone?...

  • mm.. all looks very expensive. Nice site though. Will check out next time I'm down that way

  • At least it aint' another unipack, but a local frame builder.

  • £450 for a 631 custom track frame ain't that bad.

    I shudder to think which 'leading graphic designers' they are working with...

  • yeah I guess thats not so bad. God knows how much the clothes will cost.

    Where is the bit about graphic designers?

  • In the frames section

  • oh yeah. Wonder who they're talking about.. probably ex-rapha Luke or something. Can't see Wim Crouwel getting on board :)

  • I'm local to this place, but unfortunately a guy from there had his bike stolen - I used to ride past it a lot, lovely bike.

    That's my fear some wanky sod like Simon Manchipp getting involved...

  • Lol - know what you mean. Some of his work is good. I've never met him though, which is unusual - last job involved nothing but meeting graphic designers and talking about their (mostly average) work in fine art terms. Yawn

  • The man who declared 'logos were dead'. He's a prize piece. He forms a small minority of people who make me dislike my profession...

    And yeah the clothes look dear but I guess people around that area should have a bob or two.

  • seriously, if they're offering custom 631 frames for £450 a pop - that's pretty reasonable
    bikes look nice

    They kind of are though.. visual language ftw :)

    Graphic design is full of people who make up their talent shortfall with arrogance. Crouwel, Martens, Vignelli and Sagmeister are some of the most human and honest people I have ever met - no short fall, no arrogance.

  • Yep seen them all in lectures through the years... although I think my favourite has to be an Irma Boom lecture which was chaotic, with little structure but utterly brilliant and compelling work, as it should be.

    You still can't beat a cleverly crafted and inventive logo (always good little awards bankers as well) and certainly having my own little company as well as freelancing they are good bread and butter work from private clients :)

    Yep, same boat and know exactly what you mean. "I want a logo" says client "Ok" says dan :)

  • This looks really good. I'm going to take a look and have them build me a frame. Once again, £450 + 631 + Custom angles = happy Jase

  • £450 for a 631 custom track frame ain't that bad.

    dafoney?

  • £175 for bespoke leather shoes is not too bad either

  • They are working with Peter Saville.
