The Story Behind British Hand-Built Fixie Bicycle Brand - Quella

Our History

We believe that the fixed-gear single-speed bike market is full of well-known brands selling uninspired, low-quality bikes at extortionate prices. Having been keen cyclists for all of our lives we think you deserve better.

Fixies exist at the unique intersection of thoroughbred track racing and urban fashion. Quella was created to encompass the best of both. We combine vintage inspired, minimalist British design and 21st Century track technology to create elegant, timeless bikes that function at the top end of the fixie market and, importantly, don’t break the bank.

Since our launch Quella has evolved into a company with big brand capability and small brand personability, with customer service at the forefront of all we do. Our bikes are hand-built in our ‘Old Egg Shed’ on the outskirts of Cambridge by our experienced team of bike-builders, allowing you almost limitless freedom in the builds that we can undertake.

What People Say

"You have got to give this guy credit, starting from scratch in a chicken shed or some other farmyard building, Mark Langley builds fixed gear bikes. Bloody good fixies that are not only functional but are fast becoming a bit of a fashion accessory. I for one am unashamedly waiting for my free sample model to review under solemn oath that I will return it (yeah right). Quella is fast becoming the de riguer of not just the commuter fraternity with people using them for training sportives and even track I believe. And national retailers are queuing up to stock em"

"A bicycle company based in Cambridge that sells the coolest and chicest bikes. Mine is black with yellow branding and spokes, like a speedy bumblebee."

"Your bikes are a work of art!"

Hamish Jenkinson, Director Old Vic Tunnels, Trustee Kevin Spacey Foundation

"After being a typical 'you need gears' cyclist I have been converted! Never again will I buy a geared bike. The simplicity is stunning and the style follows that too. The bike alone seems to create positive remarks from others whilst stopped at a red light. A pleasure to ride and easy to maintain."

Graham, Cambridge
