The ÆSIR

- Production Bicycles -

handmade quality - production price

The Æsir is designed to excel in a variety of fields. The ride is taught and inspiring whilst being comfortable for those ultra rides due to the careful selection of Steel tubing and carbon forks.

Whether you want to compete in Audax, make the commute to work enjoyable, nail those winter training rides or go on a bike packing adventure, this will be your go-to bike. 

All of the quality and detailing you would expect from one of the UK's finest framebuilders for only £1500.

Lee Prescott has been designing and hand building frames for over 30 years and has worked with some of the worlds premier brands. Lee is also one of UK's top bike fitters and is currently Vice President of the International Bike Fit Institute.

For the first time in 15 years Lee has designed a range of production frames under his own brand. Combining all of the knowledge and experience from his formidable career, you can be sure that the Æsir is no ordinary "off the peg" frameset.
