Milltag is a small company that collaborates with illustrators and designers to produce individual and limited edition cycling jerseys and I feel very honoured to be the first collaboration of the year.
The jersey is based on a geometric design inspired by electronica artwork. The design uses triangles throughout as a reference to bicycle geometry and depicts an urban landscape on the front and a natural landscape on the reverse. Both being playgrounds for the bicycle.
You'll definitely be seen on the roads with this selection.
Situated in the bustling Brick Lane area in the east end of London, The Truman Brewery hosted the 3 day show. There were lots of talks and events going on as well as a host of exhibitors including:
Tom Donhou with his beautiful bicycles including the 100mph bicycle project
Matthew from Saffrom Frameworks
Nick, Jools and James from Vulpine
Claire from Saddle and Spoke
and Ed from Milltag to name just a few.

The bike is built from 631 reynolds steel with a 931 polished chain stay. The paintwork is designed to reflect the CMYK printing process via the cyan and magenta gloss seat stays, the yellow saddle and brake pads and a matt slate frame. The bullbars and custom stem are made from a nitto track bar and the 650c wheels have been hand built using Phil hubs with a Campagnolo record track crankset.
You can find more information on Tom's website along with a host of other lovely bicycles.
