I'm Thom Dawley and Dawley Bikes is me and my workshop. Here I build bicycle frames, one at a time from steel as well as other small parts designed to make the cyclist-life easier.
I started making things because what I needed wasn't available off the shelf. Now I have a small selection of frames with my own blend of geometry and custom options.
My frames are a blend of traditional fabrication techniques and modern design. I build in steel and use a mix of bronze welding and fillet brazing to join the tubes. Almost all my processes are completed by hand, only using machines where I feel it's absolutely necessary.
I believe that a good bike should be an extension of the rider; geometry and handling is at the heart of what I do at Dawley Bikes. My focus is always to put the rider in control.
