Bicycles by Design & The Tandem Shop

Bicycles by design

"Bicycles by Design & The Tandem Shop offer a level of service that gives confidence to cyclists from around the world. We offer to service of all bicycles/tandems, bought, used or discovered elsewhere to bring them back to a rideable life. E-Bikes are also here in great strength and are available for Test Riding along with our Demo Bicycle and Tandems.

As frame builders, we offer hand-built frames alongside courses in frame building and wheel building. Renovations of bicycles are a specialty, alongside our wheel building of all our wheels... for your own bike or our builds.

Our specialty is simply fitting and sizing people to bicycles and tandems, so alongside Freewheel we can offer a fitting service prior to ordering any of the bicycles on-line so that the correct stem and maybe even handlebars are corrected for you along with a discussion about any other parts required that can be fitted at the time of collection. Most bicycles are delivered the next day so from a fitting session to delivery can be as short as a couple of days. Come along and meet us and enjoy the experience of what is often quoted as “that’s what bicycles shops used to be like!” and whilst you are here our neighbours the Severnside Cafe/Bar have bicycle parking and outside maintenance stand free to use.

About the store

Situated in the heart of the Ironbridge Gorge, a World Heritage Site, the store is located next to some amazing riding. We have ample parking outside, e-bike charging, a cafe next door and an overly friendly shop dog, named Phil.

We occupy a building that was founded by John Rose in 1795 as the Coalport China Factory; he continued to run it successfully until his death in 1841. The company often sold its wares as Coalbrookdale porcelain, especially the pieces with flowers modelled in three dimensions, and they may be called Coalport China. Next door to us is the YHA Coalport with 80 beds and offers great accommodation for our visitors here in the Ironbridge Gorge, Shropshire
