Stanforth Bikes - British Steel Frame

Today I had the great opportunity to meet Simon Stanforth in Brighton and test ride the Kibo+.
Simon the owner of Stanforth Bikes. Who comes from a family of bike builders, being the son of former owner of Saracen Cycles.

"British bike manufactures are reporting a rising demand. And Britain is world known for making quality frames and parts that last".

Stanforth Bikes launched the Kibo, in spring 2014, an all-terrain touring bike. All the bikes are designed and hand built in the UK. The frames are made using Reynolds tubing and built by the Britain's top frame-builders, predominantly Lee Cooper. The bikes soon become popular and customers asked for a higher spec and in 2015 the Kibo+ was launched. Next year there will be a Rohloff hub version available. Also in design is a fitting for a kick-stand and V- Brake option!  

Stanforth Bikes, are not just built for world bike tours, these bikes also make great everyday comfort & reliable riding and weekend bike packing. 
A British made frame & forks and British assembled in England. Giving these bikes a low carbon footprint, with using top quality components that are serviceable and not part of the throw-away society! 
Now with the week pound, it's now ideal to buy British and explore our own back yard!
