Ironbridge Bicycles support a collective of British frame builders!

Pete Bird and Robert Wade the founders of Bicycles By Design and Swallow Bespoke Bicycles created Ironbridge Bicycles in 2015.

Applying the same skills & techniques required to build a Bespoke Swallow Frame, Peter and Robert designed three standard models for Ironbridge Bicycles, each with a different method of construction:

These standard contemporary models share the elegance and craftsmanship of a hand-made Swallow frame, without the extra time and cost required to produce a bespoke one of a kind frame.

All Ironbridge frames are hand-made in Great Britain.

Either brazed in our workshop in Coalport (one of several villages that are part of the Ironbridge Gorge) or by carefully chosen frame builders who work in the same methods as we do.

All final quality control, plus the addition of the stainless steel bridge and head-badge are completed in our Coalport workshop. Additionally all bicycles are assembled in Coalport prior to personal collection or shipment to you, or one of our independent bicycle shop partners.

All frames feature the laser cut Ironbridge rear stay bridge & distinctive head-badge.
