Hello, my name is James Langton and I’m the Director of No Quarter.
The history of No Quarter goes back into the early 2000s. I grew up visiting my Father at his workshop after school where he’d regularly be restoring classic Le Man cars, American, muscle and classic British cars. I also learnt the art of detailing where I would use these new skills on my bike… this has followed me to this day and has helped me to produce the detailing products we currently offer.
From this, I subconsciously learnt the processes and techniques of paintwork; how to proportion colour weight, how to create a custom design and how to maintain paintwork and finished surfaces.
Ever since I was a child, cycling has always been on my mind. The clichéd stories of drawing pictures of bicycles in schoolbooks and spending weekends working on my bikes and cleaning them are indeed true for me. I was always excellent at taking my bike to bits, not so much putting it back together safely, but I live to tell the tale.
I also spend the majority of my teenage years buying and selling vintage racing bikes after placing adverts in the local newspapers. I have a passion for automotive detailing, it’s been something I’ve wanted to transfer my product knowledge and understanding over to the cycling world, hence the No Quarter cycle detailing range. The products have been developed with cycling teams, manufacturers and independent bicycle shops. Creating products that perform as good as they smell.
When creating No Quarter, I wanted to offer products and services that I would be happy buying and using, it’s that simple.
