It's fair to say Bolt London founder Andrew Almond is a two wheeled enthusiast. He has the friendly, Languid repose of a man who's just alighted from - or is about to get on - a speed machine, whether his hand painted scooter or a reworked motorbike. Bolt, Almond's workshop -cum-store at London Fields in East London, feels like a dream manifest. Here, you'll find the requisite one-off bikes, plus clothing from Dawson Denim and Black Skulls et al alongside vintage Lewis leathers and Belstaffs, and limited art editions by guest illustrators. `The space inspires the potterer in us all - and if you need it, Almond will make you coffee from his converted 1950s vanette. Clearly not one to sit still, he's planning a series of in-store music events and gatherings over summer.
