Framebuilding, bike and frame repairs, Dronfield, Derbyshire

We have been building frames, repairing and renovating bikes, frames and wheels for over 30 years. We fix all types of bikes: mountain, touring, racing, time trial, bmx, tandem and electric assisted. We service, repair and renovate aluminium, steel and titanium frames.

We also sell parts, frames and complete bikes. As we have low overheads we can pass these on to you and we are often as cheap as the best internet prices.

Reynolds 725 frame, size 55cm, steel or carbon fork (can be supplied painted to match). Contact us if you're interested.

Have a look at our frame building gallery - we do a range of tubing and you can specify exactly what you want on the bike, from finishing kit to colour.
