We dont expect that many people have ever heard of Leaf cycles but they do some great looking bits and their full bikes look great!
As far as we are aware they don’t have a distributor in the UK which is a shame because I’m sure they could do really well over here! Leaf Cycles is a small, rider-owned business which is based in Augsburg, Germany and the main man in charge is Frank Heinrich.
All of leaf cycles products are very high quality, built to last and their complete bike builds look great.
We particularly like the Gipsy which is leaf cycles fixed gear bike kitted out with a lot of the own parts, and is possible one of the nicest looking fixed gear bikes we have seen. (Spec below).

They not only supply and manufacturer MTB part but also BMX parts as well which can be found at http://www.leafbmx.com/ .
Hopefully it wont be to long before we start to see a UK company spotting this company and getting their products into the UK.
