November 16th, 2011

Royce EngineeringIf you’ve ever had a Royce hub or bb you’ll know just how high quality a British made bicycle component can be. If you haven’t been lucky enough to be a ‘Royce user’ I can highly recommend it. Even if just to see your own satisfied grin reflected in the shiniest of shiny finishes the bike industry knows.

1) Retrobike: Hello Cliff, how’s business in 2011?

2) RB: Why the name Royce?

CP: It’s got a nice ring to it, sounds like a quality product.
