Have you seen our eBay store? It's crammed full of unique titanium & carbon parts.
The Spin Ti Head Candy Collection is just the start.
Why not add me to your favourites list?
Serious cyclists can never have too many bikes or nice trick parts, and I'm no exception. But sometimes it looks to me like everyone's riding more or less the same bike, no matter what name is on the down tube. The days of artisan bike builders and truly unique parts have gone. Well, I'm on a personal quest for something different.
Of course great bike parts must be light & fast. But I want more. Parts that are also things of beauty and objects of desire in their own right. That's why I'm constantly designing, tweaking and testing new frames & parts in my favourite materials: titanium & carbon. And only when I'm satisfied with the results do they get the Spin Cycle Works seal of approval.
Bookmark me and come along for the ride!
We specialise in:
- Frames: Seriously exceptional value. Hand crafted Titanium frames for road & track
- Wheels: Seriously light & aero carbon wheels. Or select from our rims & hubs and build your own dream hoops
- Titanium: Seriously unique Ti parts you won't find in your local bike shop. Hand crafted stems, seat posts, bars, headsets, spacers, QRs. Plus a whole range of specialist Ti bolts for cranks to bottle cages

- Everything: Designed with thought & crafted by hand to Spin Your Ride

There's nothing worse than buying shiny new parts online, then waiting a week for the seller to get down to the post office to send them out. I want my new parts as quickly and securely as possible and I know you do too.
So we don't hang around once you buy. Here's our promise:
5* Star Service
We don't do 1, 2, 3 or even 4 star service. We only do 5 stars. That's because our customers deserve nothing less. And because we aren't interested in anything less than being your No 1 best source for great bike parts.
That's 5 star performance for everything within our control: from designing and producing great bike parts, ensuring they are presented to you honestly and without exaggeration, to being at our customers' service for any and all problems, concerns or questions. We keep it 5 star right through to the very last thing that's left totally within our control: prompt dispatch of your order.
At that point your item leaves our control. So we sincerely ask for our customers' understanding if sometimes your item takes longer to arrive than you hoped for. Severe weather, transport delays, customs, or poor postal services might all play their part in delaying your item from time to time.

Please read the listing title and description carefully. If you have any doubts just get in touch and we'll be happy to answer all your questions and concerns. We do our best to reply promptly to all enquiries.
|Prompt Dispatch||All orders received before UK postal deadlines ship same day. |
All orders received after UK postal deadlines ship next working day.
Please note that we do our part by shipping promptly in every case. But we can't control how long the postman takes to get it to you. If postie has taken longer than you had hoped to bring your item, we ask you to kindly check the postal date mark to see that we did as we promised, before leaving us a low feedback score for shipping time / dispatch time. We're sorry to be a pain with the long explanations, but eBay takes a dim view of low scores and penalises good sellers like us if they receive as few as 2 such low scores (1 or 2 stars in feedback ratings) in a 12 month period. We don't do low score business. We do everything that's under our control to nothing less than 5 star standard. No excuses.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is do the impossible:
Deliver light fast & beautiful titanium & carbon bikes. Without compromise. And for an exceptional price.
At Spin Cycle Works, SP!NPOSSIBLE is nothing
Well actually, it's exactly what we do. We craft unique, truly desirable lightweight bikes from titanium and carbon. And offer them at incomparable prices.
Take our titanium frames for example. Sure, there are some bargain basement Ti bikes out there. But for similar money, we're confident you won't find any with the level of knowledge, detail, craftsmanship and care we put into our beautifully engineered, properly thought through frames.
That's because there's nothing we love more than sweating over every single detail. Whether it's deciding the optimal position of a dérailleur stop or choosing the perfect blend of tubes.
Over the past 20 years or so, we've developed a passion for titanium and have been lucky enough to ride and own many of the very best bikes from the pioneers and masters of the metal. Names such as Lynskey, Litespeed, Merlin and De Rosa. All of those bikes are truly fantastic and rewarding to own. But not everyone can afford them.
From day one, our aim was to bring the pleasure of owning a great titanium bike within the reach of many more cyclists. But at Spin Cycle Works we insist on doing things properly so that means without compromising quality. And without skimping on solid engineering and all important attention to detail, no matter how small.
Because these are the things we believe differentiate bicycles made by people who truly love to ride, from bicycles designed to just shift sales units.
And so it is for this reason that we only make the bikes we want to own and ride ourselves. They're the bikes we've been dreaming of for a lifetime and throughout all of our design & development work.
I hope you'll take a look at our range of unique parts and at the extensive detail photos and build examples given throughout our store. Then you can judge for yourself if we've been successful. Whatever your conclusion, our sincere thanks for your interest and we do really hope that you'll find something you might love as much as we do.
