Design a bike for us!
16 October 2014
We’re going to test a fixed-wheel bike from Mango Bikes, but we can’t decide on a custom colour scheme. That’s where you come in…
UPDATE 4 NOVEMBER 2014: DESIGN CHOSEN!
We’ve chosen a custom design for our test bike from Mango Bikes, and here it is. Thanks to 9-yr-old Joshua White for sending it – perhaps there’s a career in bike design waiting for you!
We think his radioactive colour scheme is ideal for gloomy winter riding. As soon as we’ve got our hands on the new bike we’ll take photos of it. We might need to put sunglasses on first though…

Go onto Mango’s bike-builder website and choose the colour of the frame, forks, tyres, rims, bars, saddle – and even the chain. And if we like your design the best, that’s the bike that will be built for our review.
Your colour scheme might be super-bright, classy, stealthy – or something completely different. We’ve made a few designs of our own for inspiration that you can see below.
All you need to do is head over to the Mango Bikes bike builder for single-speed bikes and start choosing your colours. Don’t forget to choose the right config: dropped handlebars; a regular saddle; and standard Kenda tyres.
Play around with the colours for as long as you want and then click the “share your design” email icon. Use that to send your unique custom design to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll post your designs here and at the YCS Facebook page too. You can send as many different designs as you like.
Show us your skills. Go crazy.
