#058 Si & Matt Bowns of 18Bikes

Have you ever wondered what it takes to build a mountain bike frame from scratch?
For episode number #058 of The HKT Podcast we are joined by Si & Matt Bowns of 18Bikes. 18Bikes are an independent bike shop based out of Hope Valley in the glorious Peak District, Sheffield. Since taking over the shop in 2006 and after a couple of years building the business they began manufacturing their own frames, one at a time in a small but perfectly formed workshop around 15 miles from the shops location. Recently they have turned their attention to building a range of steel hardtail mountain bike frames with a different approach to sizing and geometry. Enjoy!
