• Pennywell


    Perfect for short distance cyclists and bop-about-towners.


    Clean, simple and robust, our Pennywell bike is designed for the everyday user. Most suited for those travelling short to medium distances with practicality in mind, this bike will get you from A to B easily. 


    This bike is available to purchase through the Green Commute Initiative tax free cycle to work scheme.


    • Description

      Based on our quality handbuilt bamboo frame from Ghana.


      1 by 9 Shimano drivetrain with carefully selected gear ratios gives a practical range of gears for the city, while keeping a clean and simple aesthetic – and keeping maintenance simple. Inclusion of hydraulic disk brakes on every bike provides strong, consistent and always reliable braking power regardless of weather – with the added bonus of much longer wheel life compared to all types of rim brakes. 


      Natural comfort of bamboo, resilient frame and practical specification make this the ideal every day bike.


      Each bike is carefully assembled, checked and tested in Bristol by our team of experienced mechanics.
