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.

  • When your 62cm frame needs an extra long fork steerer and calls for a clever and safe engineering solution.

  • We're down to the final four of these limited edition, custom colour black/neon yellow Palace:R frames, so if you're thinking of ordering one I wouldn't hang around too long. The deadline is April 12th, or when we've taken another four deposits.
•
Full details of the launch here:
Strictly limited to only ten frames in this Black/Neon Yellow colour way, this is your chance to own something exclusive which you'll see very few of out on the roads. They are being sold worldwide, so not all ten frames will necessarily end up in the UK.

Available to order via our website by clicking the link in the bio to visit the Custom Colour page on our website and place your order. The pre-sale period is open until April 12th or until we've taken ten orders, whichever is the soonest.

Being a very limited run these custom painted frames are priced slightly higher than the current Palace:R frames at a still very reasonable £750 for frame, forks, headset and seat clamp.

We will take a deposit of £250 to secure your order with the balance being due on April 12th, at which point if we've taken ten orders we will press the button to have the frames produced at our factory. If the minimum order requirement is not reached deposits will be returned in full.

The frames will be delivered in June. For those of you in the UK and Europe, the frames will be delivered to us here in Kent where we will give them one final quality check before shipping them out to you via UPS overnight delivery. Overseas customer frames will ship direct from the factory in Taiwan.

If you have any further questions on the project the please email us on info@bowman-cycles.com.

Tough day at the office for the @bowman_cycles #BCLayhamsDISC - haring along bridleways and single track like a deranged 12 year old. Can confirm 32mm GravelKing SKs fit with good clearance and the bike handles beautifully on Vitamin G. Spent the whole day smiling from ear to ear!

If you need any encouragement here's what @deejayjay, the owner of this bike, has to say.

This bike is an absolute weapon! The folks at @bowman_cycles have hit the jackpot with this frame! Light, responsive and corners like it's on rails! If you're in the market for a new top end aluminium frame, talk to the gents at Bowman  #cycling #kent #BowmanCycles #BCPalaceR #springiscoming
  • Monday motivation comes to you via our junior Palace pilot @_benjituch today. 
Ben is a regular on the London and South East race scene, and can usually be found smashing it around on the road, circuit or track.
Young or old, always 'Ride With Spirit'. ✊
