Pennine Handbuilt Steel Frames and Bikes


Made For You

We build every frame-set from scratch so this means you really can have the bike of your dreams, we generally use Columbus tubing on our frames but if you prefer Reynolds tubing we can also build your bike using that - Afterall it is your individual bike we are making!  You can also make selections including the size and reach length, bottle cages, the inclusion of mudguards, pannier racks and plenty more.   You can also choose the colour of your bike and have more than one colour if you wish.  We also provide individual transfers for each bike and you can add on your name as well.  As they are made individually each frame takes 8-10 week from start to completion.

Pennine Frames - The History

We have been building steel frames since 1946 and originally were making them under the Whitaker and Mapplebeck (cycles) Limited brand name.  In 1952 we began use the Pennine brand on our bikes, at this time many of our frames included individual artwork which were hand painted by May Mappleback and were picturesque scenes.  We continue to have customers contact us from all over the world who have Pennine frames which they would like us to restore and their bikes are still going strong, often they just need some updating.  We are happy to conduct Pennine bike renovations to make your original bike feel up to date.

Our master frame builder has been making frames for over 40 years. His skills, expertise and experience are used to build your ideal bicycle.  We continue to keep up to date with modern styles with our cutting-edge unique frames.

Pennine frames are an ideal bike for enthusiastic riding, commuting and they are perfect for winter for the added mudguards.

We can also create our Pennine bikes for corporate companies.  To celebrate the Tour de France coming to Yorkshire in 2014 we built this Pennine bike for Welcome to Yorkshire CEO Gary Verity.
