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.

  • Friday Family, and a lovely seasonal shot from the Netherlands Bowman Owners Club member Adrik on his green machine.
It's all about wearing the right gear and just getting out there.

  • #tbt when we had an idea. 
That idea was tried and tested and has since evolved, changed in material, and now has an equally stylish brother. The colour clearly worked back then as it does today, though.
The early Layhams aluminium prototype in British Racing Green. Still going strong today.

  • Monday in motion.
Life with the new Layhams Disc is proving sweet. We're almost looking forward to the weather taking a turn. Almost.

Contact us if you'd like to get up close and personal with the very first build and see for yourself how good looking it really is.

  • The seasons are a changing and the mornings getting cooler, but the right bike that you love to ride will keep you motivated to push on through and get you out on the road when the weather takes a turn.

  • Hill climb season is almost here, and we are proud to be supporting the @rollapaluza Urban Hill Climb as the title sponsor of the Women's event on Swains Lane in North London two weeks from today.
We'll see you there. There will be a few of our frames flying up the climb, too. 
The super light weight of the Palace:R allows it to be built up into a very svelte weapon for the fun and games on the steep stuff that goes down this time of the year.

  • It's Family Friday.
Time to showcase rides of the Bowman Owners Club, and this one from Crystal Palace resident and Palace:R rider @robtrilondon keeps it very local indeed.

  • We've come a long way, baby.
#tbt Prototypes and colour palette mess abouts.

A pre-production original Palace. The launchpad for where we are now with the Palace:R. Lots of exciting changes and developments at Bowman since then, but the Palace geometry has been with us from the start. Some things just don't need messing with.
