Chris Hoy, the most successful Great British Olympian has teamed up with Shand Cycles to create the Shand Hoy Keirin bike, a one off hand-built track frame. Sir Chris met Shand Cycles last year to discuss a collaboration to commemorate Hoy’s seven Olympic medals in a Scottish partnership between Shand and Hoy. What a beauty they have created.
Sir Chris loves Japanese Keirin and his name is written on the top tube in Japanese. The gold and silver circles represent the seven Olympic medals that he won during his career. Built with tubing and geometry specified by Sir chris and finished with Dura-Ace Track components we’d love to see him putting it through it’s paces on a velodrome.
