From a balance bike for a 2 year old to a Rohloff equipped tourer for a newly minted pensioner, via no-compromise race bikes and practical training bikes, Talbot Frameworks can create the perfect frame for your requirements.

Tubesets are assembled for each frame, taking the best from ReynoldsColumbus and Paragon Machine Works.

If you choose to use a fitting specialist we are happy to work with them to finalise frame geometry and have a close working relationship with a number of bike fitting companies, most notably Scherrit Knoesen, otherwise known as the Bike Whisperer, one of the best thought of fitters in Europe.

We can build almost all bikes with or without disc brakes.

Once the design has been finalised all tubes will be mitred and fillet brazed or tig welded by hand in our London workshop, delivery is currently ~12 weeks from payment of deposit.

Please browse our gallery of completed bikes for more inspiration.




All of our bikes are made to order, but over the years we have found that certain designs work particularly well. These are shown below.  Please get in touch to discuss your individual requirements.

Talbot offers a range of high quality finishing options. Stainless steel headbadges come as standard,a long with custom stem caps. We can paint frames in the Talbot spray booth or for more exotic paint jobs we also work with Doktor Bob.  Mirror polishing of stainless tubing is also possible.






We are always interested in pursuing the more experimental side of bicycle building. Some examples include:

  • The Award Winning Tesla paint which integrated Di2 shifting directing into the bike’s paintwork.
  • Custom carbon modification to add mudguard eyelets and light mounts to forks
  • Carbon ISP seatposts 
  • Full carbon bonded goodness
