18 Bikes Framebuilding

Alongside the brands that we offer in the shop, we also manufacture our own frames - one at a time in our small but perfectly formed workshop

Matt B makes all our frames, working primarily in steel. We offer both TIG welded and fillet brazed frames, whether that be road, mountain, cyclocross or some more unusual one-off projects!

We use tubing from Reynolds, Columbus, Dedacciai and others - with dropouts and fittings mainly coming from Paragon Machine Works.

For custom frame orders, Matt can work with you to come up with a design to your exact specifications. This includes sizing, geometry, tube specifications and fittings such as rack mounts. Of course, you can choose colour(s) and decal designs too! We also work closely with Rich at Fit4Physio so if you require a full fit, just let us know!

Please click here for further details on custom frames.

One unusual option on our custom frames is the Pinion gearbox, for information about the frames we build using Pinion gearboxes, please click here

If you don't need a custom frame on of our Workshop Series frames may fit the bill. These come in set colours and a range of sizes but we can also use them as a starting point for a custom frame if the details aren't quite right

If you have any questions regarding anything we make, please drop an email to Matt directly
