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.

  • Tubing Tuesday.
New things are a coming.
.
Our ‘Flare Square’ tubing was developed for the Palace:R frame set. An aluminium technology now tested and proven to achieve a lower weight frame, but more importantly a refined ride and improved performance.
.
We’re taking this technology through to the forthcoming Pilgrims Disc, our revised and updated aluminium Road Plus frame which we’re super stoked to be introducing to our range in 2018.
.
Find out more by signing up for our Pilgrims Disc newsletter. Email info@bowman-cycles.com with ‘Pilgrims Disc’ or ‘Pilgrims X’ as the subject. There will be some exciting news in your inbox really soon!

#tbt to those sunny rides in quiet, smooth and long roads...dreamy!! ☀️ I will need to man up and face that it's going to be really cold for the next months 😩 but like they say: "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger". Grab a good kit, a good bike and good company and the rest is just about having fun. I am actually looking forward for some winter adventures 😏❄️☃️🌬🌨

  • What’s in the box?
📦 Wednesday / 👉 Thursday 🔧 / 👉 Friday 🕺💃

Three days in the life of one of our newest members of the Bowman Owners Club.
@nickh0lland took delivery of his frame on Wednesday, spent the day (and night) on his build, and then this morning it was up and out nice and early for a shakedown in Regents Park. 
Welcome to the family, Nick, and we’ll see you out on the road very soon.
