There are two kinds of people in this world - dreamers and doers. Jules Field is the kind of guy that doesn't fit into either of those categories. 

Instead he is the kind of guy that dreams up crazy ideas and then finds a way of making them a reality.

While Field is a committed single speed rider, his bike collection covers all aspects of cycling and represents various boutique brands. 

Hanging from the roof of his Pretoria home are Cotic cyclocross and gravel bikes, a Yeti full suspension, a titanium Lynskey single speed and many more.

Field is a true cycling fanatic. He loves the technical side of cycling and finds pleasure in sourcing scarce parts, making his unique builds stand out from the crowd.
