Hand-built in Bristol by skilled mechanics
Each Bristol Bicycle is hand-built right here in Bristol. They are lovingly assembled with hand-finished wheels and extra bearing grease, in a way that cannot be done in a large factory.
Designed for everyday use
Comfortable, fairly upright riding position. All the little details are taken care of: a seam-free waterproof saddle, comfy handlebars with a small back-sweep, and bolt-on grips that won't slip.
Attention to detail where it matters
A wide range of gears and powerful V-brakes to make light work of the hills. All bikes are designed for mudguard and pannier rack fitment. And of course puncture-resistant tyres come as standard.
Engineered to last
Full Shimano gear and brake system, including hidden components such as the bottom bracket. Cassette rear wheel to eliminate broken axles even when carrying luggage, and double-walled rims. Even the spokes and brake cables are rust-proof stainless steel.
Understated by design
Deliberately minimal style, for example the satin black frame colour and subtle graphics, designed not to attract the attention of thieves.
