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.

  • LAYHAMS DISC IN DETAIL.

With the pre-sale window of our stainless steel Layhams Disc opening very soon we thought you'd like to see more details of the painted production frame such as flat-mounts and 12mm thru-axle. 
We're also moving to our new Bowman roundel on the head tube and here on the Layhams Disc seat tube.

We'll post more studio shots in the next few days in anticipation of the @sramroad eTap Hydro build hitting the roads next week.

If you haven't already done so you can be the first to receive full details of the pre-release by signing up to our Layhams Disc newsletter. Just email us on info@bowman-cycles.com with 'Layhams Disc' as the subject.

  • Palace:R owner @stephenpond is currently giving his bike a stretch out on the roads around Girona. 
Check out his feed for some truly beautiful photography. It's not all about the bike, either.

Fresh goods for a Friday afternoon.
We're super stoked to finally be able to show you this. The painted version of our stainless steel Layhams Disc frame.
It will come in two colour ways including this classic British Racing Green/Raw Steel and available to pre-order within the next ten days.
If you'd like to be first to get the full lowdown including pricing, spec and lead times then sign up for our Layhams Disc newsletter by emailing info@bowman-cycles.com with 'Layhams Disc' as the subject.
We'll be building this beauty up very soon, so look out for photos of a very nice complete build across our social feeds and also out on the road from next week. There will be a Layhams Disc page going live on our website soon too.

  • We're back with a whole lotta new.
After a brief broadcasting hiatus due to things going a bit mental with the Palace:R, quite frankly, our latest edition of 'Between The Lines' is now live on our YouTube channel.
If our new Hither Green 'Ghetto Chic' office, Layhams Disc and Pilgrims X launch, and @sramroad eTap Hydro interest you then get on it pronto.
Link in bio.

  • We will always be in love with the Layhams. Recently reviewed on @cyclingtips where you can read the thoughts of @angryasian on our truly versatile stainless steel all-rounder.
If discs aren't your thing, then this is the one for you. Kind of wish Autumn was upon us. Well, kind of.
.
We have four of these black frames still available at bit.ly/Layhams.
