How to Order

There's a lot of information on our Bicycles by Design web-site to help you figure out which bike you would like, but we expect you will have questions to ask us, so drop us an email or give us a call, how easy is that?

After initial contact, we prefer to deal face-to-face with clients so we can get to know you and how you cycle and what you like. So pay us a visit, discuss your requirements further and test ride some bikes. You'll also get to know the Bicycles by Design team: frame builders and designers, the people that will assemble your bike and build your wheels. However, if you are unable to visit, or would like to discuss thing further we can continue communication by phone, email and Skype for a 'face to face' if need be.

We are situated in a great part of the country for cycling and easily accessible (from most major towns in the UK and Europe) by rail, road or air. So take some time out and enjoy a couple of days here.
