Oak cycles is a workshop that specializes in the design and fabrication of custom steel bicycle frames. Every frame is a unique project. There are no stock sizes; nothing comes “off the peg”. We focus on fit and geometry, and look forward to collaborating with you on your design. Our bikes have toured the world, crossed finish lines and stood up to long days on the courier circuit. We understand that a bike is more than just transport, it’s a passion.
Our workshop can be traced back to a promise between friends to build bikes, quit our jobs, and cycle to India. With strong ideas on how a bike should ride, but minimal time and tooling, the first frame was built and assembled the week before we left. That first frame crossed the Alps, the desert of Syria, took a detour to Cairo and eventually led to a decision to return to London and carry on making the kind of bikes that we love to ride.
