Bikes say a lot about yourself. Why then should a frame not be every bit as unique as the human being riding it? That's why I love and build custom frames. I don't do production runs. I build bespoke bikes, one by one, starting with design and the geometry to fit you like a glove, continuing with a hacksaw, a file, a TIG welder, a pipe bender and finishing everything off with an extensive manual finish and a bolt on headbadge. If I had a say everybody would ride a custom bike.

MERIVALE CYCLE WORKS
After a professional life using my hands, I needed to ‘keep on keeping on’ in retirement. I am a passionate cyclist. I have enjoyed years of commuting to work by bicycle. Sometimes, that was the best bit of the day. I have also undertaken much
longer cycling trips. It therefore seemed reasonable to combine the need to use my hands, and that passion for the bicycle. I built my first frame at Downland Cycles. Thereafter I attended The Bicycle Academy to further develop my skills. I believe that the bike you jump on for a trip to the shops, the bike you commute on, head to the beach on, or go camping on, should be the bike that you just love. After all, why leave your favourite bike in the shed awaiting that rare, dry, and free Saturday morning,? You might as well await the blue moon. Why not ride ‘best’ all of the time?

Dr Alex Moulton pioneered the small wheeled bicycle revolution nearly 50 years ago. All of today's small wheeled cycles owe a debt of gratitude to the original Moulton 'F' frame design which not only introduced and proved the concept of full-size bicycles with small wheels, but also, right from launch in 1962, have utilised front and rear suspension systems for improved comfort and performance. The Moulton bicycle has been developed and refined constantly ever since and is held in high regard throughout the world.
