Inch Pitch is a Berlin based company celebrating the glory days of cycling with bespoke products and prints for the cycling enthusiast. Up until the mid 1940’s many bicycles, especially track bicycles, used an ‘inch pitch’ or block chain. These had a 1″ pitch as opposed to the 1/2″ pitch used on modern bicycles. The pitch is the distance between two teeth on the sprocket or chain-ring.
