From: Trillion Cycles,

Of the three brands on test, Trillion Cycles is by far the youngest. Having formed this time last year, Trillion only officially launched to the public in early 2017 at the London Bike Show – seemingly coming out of nowhere. But as it turns out, there’s some pretty big investment going on behind this new name.

Trillion is owned by industrial mega-company the Liberty House Group, which specialises in producing steel and aluminium, while also working in metals recycling. Owner Sanjeev Gupta has made himself known in the UK thanks to a number of key purchases of declining smelting mills around the country, with the immediate goal of retaining local jobs and a long-term goal of repurposing those mills into metal recycling plants fuelled by renewable energy. In addition to his ambitious commodities projects and desire to bring manufacturing back to the UK, Gupta launched the Trillion brand as an homage to his father – an Indian steel tycoon who originally founded Victor Bicycles. However, Gupta is keen to assert that Trillion isn’t a vanity project, but rather a conscious move to kick-start bicycle mass production in the UK – a country that was once home to the biggest bike manufacturers in the world.

Whether you’re stay-cationing or joining the jet-setters, this summer issue is sure to have you occupied for those hours by the pool or sheltering from the rain outside your tent. (Hand) Made In China – We get unprecedented behind the scenes access to some of the bike factories in China and Taiwan. Is it a sorry sight of oppressed workers in shabby conditions? Or skilled bike builders in state of the art facilities? Classic Ride: Northern Ireland – Ian Bailey finds us a rare legal loop around the trails of Northern Ireland. Trail Hunter: Snowdon – Just because something is popular doesn’t mean it can’t be a classic. Tom Fenton opts for the dawn raid on the highest peak in Wales. Bike Test: Killer Hardtails (in Innsbruck) – Three tough trail hardtails from Kona, Nukeproof and Trillion make the trip to Innsbruck to see just how capable a modern hardtail can be. Group Test: Hi-Tech Tyres – James Vincent checks out the current generation of burly rubber. Is there such a thing as a tyre for all seasons? Or even a tyre for a whole Lake District ride? He’s been getting the punctures so you don’t have to. Interview: Keith Bontrager – Keith has been designing bikes and components since the eighties. He invented the mantra ‘Cheap, light, strong – pick two’ and has been behind Trek’s component line for over two decades.
