Tom's Bowman Layhams Custom

Tom's Bowman Layhams Custom

The red and brushed steel frame just drew me in immediately. I did some research on Bowman and totally bought into the brand. I pre-ordered the frame to arrive in November and found it fascinating to watch their video blogs which included product testing as well as visits to the factory where my frame was being built.

I am a steel newbie but after the first ride I was totally sold. The geometry is quite relaxed so using it for winter riding is perfect as it feels like a real tank that is so well ground. Saying that I'd still be happy taking it to a chain-gang.

Custom steel build makes the perfect winter steed
Equipped with a full Fizik finishing kit and Shimano Ultegra groupset
"Bowman have got the look bang on. Add gumwall tires and it’s got a great modern vintage look to it. I also like the versatility the the long drop brake callipers provide."
