Our thoughts

Quella bikes just keep getting better and better, and the Nero is a prime example. Although the most notable feature is the chrome finish of the frame, if you look at the details you’ll see that it’s a bike made with a lot of love. It could be higher in the ranking, but the somewhat high weight penalises it compared to the rest of the bikes. In any case, if you don’t need the lightest bike on the market and want it for commuting, this bike is an excellent choice.

  • Hi,
    My loved old Specialised Langster has a terminal frame crack – so I need a new single speed bike. What would you recommend as replacement – light-weight, straight handlebars. Up to £750? And in stock?
    Thanks
    Chris

    • Raval is also lightweight (alu frame), very quick and responsive. Asume that’s the best comparision to Langstar.
      I love my Raval, so quicker than my previous steel fixies. I upgraded it with carbon fork and Seat pin, making it even lighter + more compliant.
