I'm Thom Dawley. Dawley Bikes is a family run, rider owned business. Our custom mountain bike frames are designed and made one at a time by myself in our workshop in Kimberley, Nottinghamshire.
Our frames are a blend of traditional fabrication techniques and modern design. We use the highest quality tubing from Reynolds in Birmingham and Deda in Italy. To join the tubes we use a unique blend of bronze welding and fillet brazing. Almost all our processes are completed by hand, only using machines where we feel it's absolutely necessary.
We set the character of each of our frame models via the rear triangle geometry and head tube angle and offer custom sizing via the reach, seat tube length and head tube length.
We also offer fully custom powder coating in any colour we can get our hands on.
We believe that a good bike should be an extension of the rider; geometry and handling is at the heart of what we do at Dawley Bikes. Our focus is always to put the rider in control.
