Jay Pond-Jones

Bespoke steel-framed bikes
Jay started ColourBolt bikes back in 2010. He wanted to create beautiful lightweight steel bikes made for a long life beyond the showroom. The bikes are coated in hard wearing finishes – an amazing range of industrial blacks or a stunning mirror polished finish.

Each of the bikes features a single red chainring bolt, creating a contrasting point of colour on the otherwise-monochrome build – hence, ColourBolt. Taking minimal branding to the extreme, Jay has created a much sought after marque.

2019 saw ColourBolt’s first collaboration with another brand – Moulton Cycles, resulting in the Moulton X-Black. It was Bike Of The Week in The Guardian.
