At Shand Cycles we have a simple philosophy – we believe that we should ride more and discover more in order to feel better and do better. Taking inspiration from our Scottish birthplace where our bespoke bikes are still designed and put through their paces, we are committed to creating modern, elegant and multi terrain capable rides that can take you anywhere. Our bikes know no boundaries, so neither should you!

Our products/services


Story and ethos

All of us at Shand are passionate about bikes and cycling. Commuting, racing, touring – it doesn’t matter, it’s all good. Our team combines years of riding and hands-on experience with bikes – whether that is design, sizing, componentry or cycling tech. Scroll down to find out more about who is on the team.

WE’VE BEEN BUILDING BESPOKE FRAMES BY HAND SINCE 2003 AND CAN OFFER CUSTOM FRAMES ALONGSIDE OUR PRODUCTION RANGE OF HAND-BUILT FRAMES AND FORKS. We specialise in building in steel and can tailor any build to meet your needs using tubing from Reynolds, Columbus, True Temper, Tange and Dedacciai – and due to higher volume production, we have access to tube-sets not readily available to other builders. Our lead-time on custom frames depends how busy we are at the time, but we aim to keep delivery time to a minimum, ideally somewhere around 16 weeks – and much quicker if you require a custom size or modification based on one of our production frames. We are very experienced building road, cyclocross, touring and mountain bikes, with particular expertise in 29er mountain bikes, Rohloff equipped frames and expedition off-road tourers. You can see some of our previous work on our Flickr pages to get a feel of the type of work we do. How your bike fits is the single most important aspect of what we do. Some of our customers know what size of frame they would like us to build for them, but for most we give the perfect made-to-measure fit, through custom geometry, for the type of riding you do.

OUR PURSUIT HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO RIDE MORE AND CREATE THE BIKES THAT THRILL US AS RIDERS FIRST AND FOREMOST. All of us at Shand are passionate cyclists and commute to work as well as ride for experiencing the great outdoors at the weekend. We, like all of you out there, have busy work and personal lives, and understand the one thing we have in common: the constant pressure in our modern lives to do more, work harder, achieve beyond expectations and generally be more! But we are only human. Because of this we have long since come to realise that only by discovering more and living more can we do better.
