Year 1 Cycles

May 12, 2021

Year 1 Cycles are an italian cycles & custom cycles & component specialists who specialise exclusively with Epoca bikes & Campagnolo.

Owner Simon Bruce has for over 50 years now has created one of a kind & fabricated bespoke, made-to measure cycles for the serious cyclist.

Many years ago, owner Simon purchased a Beta wrench from a local stockist and was so impressed with the quality and handling and options of beta tools that since that time, has been using Beta Tools only on a regular basis to compliment the bikes he builds. Originally The local beta stockist closed and to keep loyal to Beta, Simon changed suppliers and now orders all his Beta products from Beta stockist SJ Andrew in Redruth, Cornwall.

Simon said “I need to use extremely high quality products which will not fail in use and work to the highest standards possible for the bikes i build or fabricate and components and for customers ease of mind which is why I only buy and use exclusively Beta tools. The beta chainbreaker I use is the best I’ve ever had or used”.

In addition to the tools, Simon’s workshop contains a number of Beta toolboxes including the limited edition C33. In fact, Simon was one of the first in the UK to take delivery of the box – lucky for him as they have now sold out.
