I’m Simon Aske, founder and owner of Aske Bikes.
I’ve been in the cycle industry for over 25 years. My love of custom bikes started with the creation and design of the revolutionary Hotta monocoque carbon fibre bicycle and has progressed through to my present day and latest design, the “Selah”. Building a custom bike involves so much more than creating a fun and efficient form of transport. Each Aske bike design and build is a bespoke piece of engineering; engineering that can take its rider from the daily commute through to racing at the highest level. Working with Olympic, World and Tour de France champions has given me the depth of industry knowledge required to design and build the best bicycle for each rider and required discipline.
At the Aske Bikes workshop in Devon we hand build steel bike frames and bespoke bikes. We work closely with each client to ensure their touring, mountain or road bike frame suits their requirements when it comes to purpose, design and fit. Today’s serious cyclist is no longer satisfied with off-the-peg design. This is where Aske Bikes have the long-standing experience to help. When it comes to form, function and fit, we are the custom bike specialists in Devon.
The bicycle is one of the UK’s fastest-growing leisure pursuits. Whether commuting, exploring or racing, the fit of a custom bike is of paramount importance. Every Aske Bike frame is built to a strict set of individual parameters, and then hand created in our Paignton workshop, using traditional techniques. Our high-quality steel frames look and ride better than many carbon fibre alternatives. From order to delivery, each frame takes approximately two months. We use only tried and tested materials including British manufactured Reynolds tubing, which can be customised to build requirements. Customer colour and design specifications are incorporated into each build.
At Aske bikes we are the custom bike experts in Devon and we can make your dream of bespoke bike ownership a reality. Call into our Paignton workshop for a chat or get in touch today.
