It’s worth keeping your eye on eBay as Rob’s making space for new stock and selling some lovely vintage gear.

M.Steel is from the north east. As a shop it has actually been around since the late 1800’s, but has only been in the world of making and selling bicycles for about 80 years.
In 1980 Geoff and Dave Yates founded ‘M. Steel Lightweight Cycles Ltd’ so they could manufacture high quality custom steel frames. Not so long after this Joe Waugh came on the scene, at this point he was at the height of his cycling career. Joe acted as a mobile test bed for the company products. The company became established and well respected and managed to build quality frames right up until 2005 when demand from aluminium bikes meant their business was no longer sustainable. God damn aluminium!
This bike is in very nice original condition. She is a real head turner and comes from a good line of blood.
I am sure she will be snapped up in no time.
Top tube 58 cm, seat tube 60 cm.
She comes rebuilt and fully serviced.

That’s Bradley Wiggins stood in the doorway of Sargent and Co. He asked Rob to repair his puncture and Rob told him that the doesn’t work on any of that modern carp. We can’t bend the rules just because someones got an OBE.
We can’t wait to see you win at the Olympics Bradley (on your modern bike), we are rooting for you. Go team GB.
