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.

  • Cheeky little recce of next Saturday's Backyard Jam finishing spot at @brickbreweryse15 on the way home from collecting some frames from HQ.
Made sense to sample tonight's offering from the @slowrichies boys. Incredible, as always.

The reborn Palace:R
•
A stunning Palace:R build by @thebikemason and @cyclingtips tech editor for @rolfey71 over in Sorrento, Western Australia.
Full @rideshimano Dura-ace with @rovalcomponents wheels with the complete build weighing in at 7.5kg including pedals.
Jason said 'It rides like a dream and feels like it wants to be raced'. Look out for more Bowmans appearing on Cycling Tips in the near future.
We still have some 58cm frames available in this colour in the batch arriving next week. Other sizes arriving at the end of March.
Email info@bowman-cycles if you would like one.

  • Meanwhile in Mallorca.
Our man @andymatthews is falling deeper and deeper in love with his Palace:R.
Descends as well as it corners, so it seems.

  • It's not about the bike. It's about the burger.
Next Saturday's 'Bowman Backyard Jam' ride finishes at @brickbreweryse15 in Peckham Rye. 
Post-ride refuel involves very locally brewed beers and ales and world-class burgers served up by the @slowrichies boys.
Still a few places left. Sign up via the link in the bio.

  • Tyre clearance looking good for bigger rubber on the Layhams DISC prototype.

Checking clearances with some Schwalbe S-Ones on the Layhams DISC. Pictures don't do the rear clearance justice - plenty of space for 30s and looks promising for the 32 Gravel King SKs. Result!
