“We love our Stanforth bikes!
Thanks to Simon who listened to our needs and crafted bikes that work perfectly for our bike touring adventures. Our bikes have taken us on and off road all across Europe, Turkey, and beyond.”

“Since taking ownership of my Pamira Rolhoff I have used it for several hundred miles of road, gravel and rough singletrack.
It’s an exceptionally comfortable ride with the Denham bars offering lots of options to move position on the bike, enjoy the scenery sitting upright or streamlining my position to avoid a headwind.
The Pamira is a superb load carrier, everything feels solid and secure even on the roughest tracks. Finally the Rolhoff hub has definitely bedded in and coupled with a Veer split belt is silent, smooth with plenty of range.”

“Best decision ever! I wouldn't want any other bike to travel the world. Simon is also great. Even after I picked up the bike he was very helpful and patient. Great bike from a great guy.”
“This is a quick to Simon for providing not only a buttery smooth Pamira touring and expedition bike, but also top tier customer service from day 1 to the present. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a new custom bike. ”
“My trusty Stanforth has proved to be quite a star…it goes downhill and along the flat like a rocket but using way less energy.
It also handles luggage like it’s not there. (When I take the 50lbs off it handles almost identically!!) My Stanforth is also way more stable going up hill with much less of a tendency to lift at the front. So, all in all a triumph. Thank you Simon!! ”
“After much research, I finally decided to talk to Simon Stanforth about a Pamira. I quickly recognised that Simon had given considerable thought to the design and specification of this bike. We debated the pros and cons of various aspects before finalising a spec. Simon is clearly vested in building you the bike you want. I took delivery in September 2022 and have been delighted with it. It’s pretty indestructible, yet provides a superb ride, especially off-road on some of the gnarlier routes across Mid-Wales. Whenever I have had questions, Simon has been utterly responsive. A craftsman offering superb customer service!”
“I notice how well it feels to sit on the bike and to ride it – just the right reach, superb bars, awesome tyre width and more. It’s the first time for me to ride a custom-made geometry bike. The bike is still super comfortable to ride– maybe you can compare it to a tailor-made suit which you wear for the first time and it just fits perfectly fine.”
