At Bowman Cycles we create unique, UK-designed, accessible bike frames with exceptional attention to detail. The team behind the bikes are inspired by our local environments: truly varied terrain influences both the riding and the time spent in the design studio. We want to do more than just sell you a dream; we want to help
you Ride With Spirit.

OUR SPIRIT

Every one of our bicycle frame concepts, and all of the refined details therein, were conceived astride the saddle of a bicycle. Each time we design a new frame, the initial idea matures to a finished product we are very proud of. Our basic test is this: If you are smiling when you come out of the corner, the bike has hit the mark.

Racers and discerning riders alike have one thing in common: the need for great handling. This is why here at Bowman we have a flourishing range of bicycle frames designed to provide the ride and performance characteristics that a committed cyclist demands.

Our team ride enough to know exactly what you require from your bicycle. We’ve served our time – battled for the rightful position in an aggressive bunch, forced the pace to forge a winning move, spent time in the lanes and on the trails – and therefore have a true understanding of the perfect balance of requirements.

OUR CUSTOMERS SUPPORT

Bowman is nothing without our customers support for our brand. We describe our customer base as a family for good reason; we feel there’s a connection we share based on what cycling contributes to our lives. We’re ready to explain how our products differ according to specification and intended use.

Listening is important; we know every customer is
different and deserves real advice to work out which
Bowman product fits their needs.

Congratulations to @tlakers after bagging a top 20 finish today aboard his new @noblewheels-built Palace:R, in his first ever race. 
He's got the bug now, and the right frame for the job. Palace Tuesday night, then?!
Good work, Sir. ✊

  • Not strictly a #tbt, more of an Evolution of a Speedster.
Following on from yesterday's post, after having delivered this Palace:R to @mcorf44 who has been riding and racing the original Palace, the lower of the two bikes here. This comparison shot shows the two generations side by side. These are both 52cm frames.
Only the geometry of the frame is shared. Refined, revised, reborn. The Palace:R is all-new in every other department.
Both rapid in their own distinct way, though.

  • It was a pleasure to finally deliver this black/jade Palace:R to @mcorf44 so he could build it up ready for the race season which is getting into full swing.
Mark has been riding an original Palace for a few months whilst waiting patiently for his new weapon to arrive, so we're looking forward to hearing how they compare.
