Ashmei and the steel bike of your dreams!

A few weeks ago I was invited to the launch of Ashmei’s new cycle clothing range, sadly work got in the way of attending which is a shame on three counts. Number one, it was held at look mum no hands, my favorite cafe by far in London. Two Ashmei are the sister company to Blue Associates who  have worked some of the biggest brands in clothing for a long while now. Rapha, Vulpine and Intrepid are the first to spring to mind. Finally they had one of the nicest looking steel bikes I have seen for a long, long time at the launch. For those of you who missed it too have a look at the images below. It porves one thing, and one thing only. Custom steel bikes are the MOST beautiful bikes in the world, and the Ashmei Vendeyk tops them all!
