Singular Cycles crafts metal bicycles with their soul in the dirt.
Singular Cycles was launched in March 2007 by Sam Alison with a single frameset – the Swift. This was very much the early days of 29” wheeled bikes, especially so in the UK, and Singular was the first British brand built around this new wheel size. The Swift quickly developed a loyal fan base for its sublime ride quality and classically simple appearance.
Early on Singular recognised the virtuous combination of big wheels, fat tyres and drop handlebars. The very first Swift prototype in 2006 was built with a flared drop bar. The range grew to include more models in this vein, the more mountain leaning Gryphon, or the proto-gravel Peregrine.
Since that time, Singular has also been at the vanguard of development of ‘monstercross’ or ‘gravel’ bikes – fundamentally go anywhere, do anything bikes with 700c wheels and drop handlebars. While others chased lighter weight and more suspension travel, we recognised and extolled the virtue of simple, versatile bikes which are a joy to ride.
Thankfully, it seems like more people are coming to the same conclusion! For this reason we are delighted to re-introduce the wonderful Peregrine steel frameset, and supply custom Titanium frames. You can find further details on the product pages. We are working to re-introduce more of the classic Singular steel frames.
