Bike Frames









"Building top quality frames is an intuitive business. You need the technical skills and the right materials........but you also need loads of experience and that extra indefinable feel for framebuilding to create something really special."














We have a limited number of frames available at greatly reduced prices, and also one of Dave's own bikes. For full details Click here








Lifelong cyclist DAVE YATES is one of cycling’s true legends. A Custom Framebuilder for over 30 years, he has a worldwide reputation for designing and building steel bike frames of the very highest quality.

With this unrivalled experience, DAVE YATES CYCLES can offer you a unique range of services:


Designed and hand-built by Dave to your personal requirements.

All styles and tastes catered for from 50s style replica road frames to fixed wheel or singlespeed with eccentric bottom brackets or sliding dropouts. Touring frames, audax frames, mountain bike frames, you name it, Dave will probably have done it before. We also fit S&S couplings for the ultimate in portability and can build frames to take Rohloff hubs.


Build your own custom bike frame under Dave’s expert tuition and be one of the select band who can say of their frame "I made it"


Dave can repair and re-spray your bike frame. Sympathetic restoration of older frames is a specialty. We have a stock of many 'original' parts.






Dave's workshop is based near Coningsby in Lincolnshire. Dave prides himself on offering a personal service and asks that all frames are collected in person when finished. I am afraid we do not offer a shipping service.
