With a few simple tools and a bit of inspiration, anyone can build a bicycle that will bring many years of happy riding. This book will teach you the right skills, how to choose the right components, use tools confidently and ace the technical bits to end up with a unique and totally bespoke single-speed bike. Learn how to dismantle a vintage bike for its frame and parts, measure it all for a perfect fit, assemble it with new parts into a safe and stylish new bike, and finally pop on a bell or basket. This is your complete guide to building your own ride.

Jenni Gwiazdowski founded the London Bike Kitchen in 2012 – an education space that encourages people to fix and build their own bikes. You can drop in (there are mechanics on hand to answer questions), or book into classes and workshops. Jenni hails from San Diego and went to university at UC Berkeley before travelling around Europe and settling in London.
