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.

Until our official PalaceRs with custom team colours arrive, the good folk at Bowman have been kind enough and supplied us with some loan units 🙏
After a full day in the saddle, the team owner proclaimed: "This is the best bike I have ever ridden" 🤘

Full disclaimer: the team owner has a dozen big brand bikes like Pinarello, Bianchi, and Specialized in his man cave 👀

  • A family tree with strong roots.
#tbt our group ride a few weeks ago when both the original Palace and the current Palace:R were represented proudly by their owners. A solid benchmark has been set with these winners.

  • Turbo Tuesday, and anything the Palace:R can do the stainless steel Layhams can too. Loving the indoor mudguard action.
