Answer for Limited Edition cycle hire bikes

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Barclays Cycle Hire bikes are produced through a complex, bespoke manufacturing process, and as such, making changes to the cycles to produce a limited edition would be prohibitively expensive. Therefore, TfL has no plans currently to produce a limited edition.

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee will be a very exciting time for London, and we look forward to thousands of people using Barclays Cycle Hire to attend as many events as possible.
