Bowman Palace ‘Absolutely Awesome’

Bowman Palace roadcc_logo_220stars-9

A new British brand we’ve been championing from the start, this latest review of Bowman’s Palace should kill any thoughts you may have that aluminium is a ‘downgrade material’ for a road bike…

Well, what a frame. The Palace sums up to me everything that a proper race bike should be. That raw, uncluttered feeling of some metal tubes and sorted geometry creating a bike that just feels right.

At cruising speed it’s mild mannered and very easy to ride and you can cover a lot of miles with very little distraction. (An) absolutely awesome frame that is a showcase for aluminium; one of the best high-speed handling frames out there

With no weight limit and a sensible price tag this is the bike you need for the 2015 Crit season!

  • Frameset (inc headset) £650
  • Full Shimano 105 builds from £1450
