Meteor Works® is the brainchild of successful Bicycle Designer Lee Prescott.
Lee started building frames at the age of 11 alongside his father, Charlie, himself a successful motorcycle designer. School summer holidays were spent picking up old bikes and cutting them to pieces and using the tubing to build the bikes Lee wanted but couldnt afford. Highlights of this era have to be a classic fillet brazed touring bike with salvaged campag gran sport and a suspension MTB using gas struts fom a VW Golf!
A career in design was inevitable, which lead Lee to the world leading industrial design course at Coventry University where he formed a relationship with the design team at Raleigh Special Products. His end of degree exhibition showcased a versatile suspension system that could be used on high end and utilitarian bikes alike, which was successfully patented by the University and used commercially for many years.
Following prolific periods designing for Pashley and his own company Hidden Nation, Lee went on to consult for several blue chip companies. He is a founding member of the successful Velo Atelier Bicycle Studio who have pioneered the Clinical Bike Fit™ protocol and has recently helped to write the official IBFI text book on bike fitting
