A classic, modern road bike

Frames from £1,550, Full bikes from £2,950

2015/16 sees the return of the Skinnymalinky, our classic steel road bike. Fabricated from a mix of custom drawn Reynolds and Columbus tubing, it’s designed to be fast, comfortable and built for long miles. In addition to being a fun performance bike, the Skinnymalinky is also practical with space for 28mm tyres and mudguards. This is a bike you can and should ride all year round regardless of the rough road surfaces and weather found across the UK and northern Europe.

The 2015 Skinnymalinky has been updated with internal cable routing for the rear brake and a new 'Breezer' style rear dropout. Geometry is the same as the tried and tested numbers from previous years. Tubing has been upgraded to be lighter and we now spec the uniquely individual carbon fork from US composites specialists WoundUp. A steel fork is still available as a special order.

To complete the 'bespoke' look, all bikes will have a painted-to-match stem and fork. Forks can be left unpainted with exposed carbon fibre if desired.

Standard production sizes are shown below, but a made-to-measure frame can be specified for no extra cost.

New for 2015 is our custom fit programme. As well as our standard sizes listed above customers can request a custom fit bike at no extra cost. We'll work with you either in person, remotely or via a 3rd person fitting specialist to design a bike specifically for you.


Unless otherwise agreed, all complete bikes will be setup with 10mm of spacers under the stem. Stem lengths and seatpost types (layback or inline) are frame size specific to enable maximum amount of adjustability. We can provide a dimensioned drawing of final setup on request.

Finding the right size

If you have questions about the frame size and position that suits you best, we can help. Just get in touch to discuss the fitting process and we’ll talk you through our online fitting form. If you already have fit information from a 3rd party, we can make use this too.
