A hobby... Gone to far
Hambini is the result of my weekend “need for speed” and application of my engineering to real world problems. For a long time, I have made parts for myself to improve the performance of bicycles and cars that I have owned. This has ranged from bicycle headsets to full blown bespoke turbochargers. Through word of mouth, I supplied some of these items to members of my local cycling club, the local bike shop and some car forum members. This has grown organically and after some encouragement by my friends and family, I now supply items through the Hambini website www.hambini.com and I also list on ebay.
For my full time job I am an Aeronautical engineer and head of Aerothermal Engineering for a large jet engine manufacturer. I am a member of the Institution of Mechanical engineers and a Chartered Engineer. If you purchase a Hambini product, you are purchasing the same level of engineering expertise and knowledge that goes into designing engine parts for the Eurofighter Typhoon.
In addition, rest assured, the person who designed your product, machined it, packed it and sent it – there are no other people in the supply chain.
On a personal note, I take great pride in my engineering skill and reputation, if you have any problems or questions (no matter how small) please contact me and I will do my utmost to resolve them. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hand Made in UK
All Hambini products are designed and manufactured in the UK, there are no infamous "far eastern" manufacturing tolerances or substandard materials used in construction.
Raw materials are sourced from the Sheffield, England. Surface treatment is provided by the same company that supplies Airbus, Boeing and Lockheed Martin.
I only use genuine branded bearings from NTN, SKF, NSK or FAG/INA.
All of my bottom brackets are hand made. Despite working in the Aerospace industry with access to highly advanced CNC equipment, I prefer to machine by hand. In my experience, the ultimate fit is achieved by a Human and not by a machine.
If you have a problem or a query before purchasing an item please email email@example.com, you will usually receive a reply within the day and often the hour.
