Starling Cycles to create new batch of frames

The Starling Cycles workshop had confirmed that it is ready to create its next small batch of steel frames.

The next batch will be crafted from the start of the new year with bikes reaching riders by the Summer. There will be Swoop and Murmur frames available, and for the first time, the single speed Beady Little Eye will go into production. All frames will be available with custom geometry and paint options.

Because demand is higher than the Workshop can meet, Starling is holding a lottery to give riders a fair chance of getting an order. Riders can opt in by purchasing a limited edition Starling Cycles stem cap.

Ten pounds from each stem cap will go to the Brighter Futures Zambia charity. A draw will then be held to choose which riders are able to go ahead and a custom Starling frame.

Starling Cycles founder and creator Joe McEwan builds steel mountain bike frames by hand in Bristol. His bikes are designed to be simple to setup and easy to ride. All frames are made from British drawn Reynolds steel.
