Flat Bar Road Bikes. London

Hand made Reynolds steel frame with carbon fork. Hand built in Camden, London

Ride Good . Look good . Feel good

Goldhawk makes fast flat bar bikes for people who want more go, more style and no nonsense.

Created by ex aerospace engineer, Jeff Rutland, because he had a dislike for drop bars, was unimpressed with the flat bar bikes on offer and because design is what he does.

Made in steel because that rides the best and equipped with the latest spec, Goldhawks are made in small numbers because that works for us and you get something special.

Simple really.

Road CC said 'it's the best aspects of old school style and quality, combined with the best aspects of modern tech and performance. And it rides simply fantastically. 10/10'

The ultimate flat bar urban bike. Custom Steel Frame designed and built in the UK

Ride Good..

Designed in house and made exclusively for us, the heart of every Goldhawk is its Reynolds steel frame.

Constructed in 520 tubing, the modern version of the iconic 531 and paired with a straight bladed carbon fork, this frameset serves up an agile and exciting ride.

Add customised 1x11 gearing and powerful SRAM Level T hydraulic discs and the Goldhawk Rodax is built to be ridden all day, every day.

Sportive.com said 'The Rodax feels lively and urgent... in a word, fun.'

Look Good..

A bike's got to look as good as it rides.  It's half the reason you buy it...

Fine detailing including brazed internal brake lines (not easy) and hooded dropouts complete the minimalist frameset.

Don't settle for matt. Crank, handlebars, stem and seat post are polished gloss black and it's all finished with a hand enamelled badge and discreet logos.  Sharp and clean..

For that touch of exclusivity.... A well engineered, purposed bike you won't see everyday.

We're a small producer and like it that way.  Creating quality, limited edition bikes is our passion and each Goldhawk is built by hand in our Camden workshop.

The Thinking..

Jeff, founder and designer at Goldhawk has spent a lifetime in the saddle, but kept coming back to the same problem.

He likes to ride fast, was unhappy with the ride experience from a drop (racing) bar bike and just couldn't find a good flat bar that wasn't a dull commuter or cheap 'hack'.

So when the opportunity to quit his job as the Engineering Director of a tech company came up, Jeff saw a chance to do something about it.

'For me, cycling is about freedom.  Just getting out there and doing it.  I don't race, am not in a club and didn't appreciate being told what I should ride and how I should ride.

Turning ideas into designs is my profession, but it still took several attempts and thousands of miles to refine both the ride and the look.

Much of the testing was done around the Goldhawk Road in West London near where I live, which is why its called Goldhawk.  I just like the word and it fits great on the downtube!

I love fast street riding, so there's no doubt these are awesome urban bikes, but with full mudguard and rack mounts, they're just at home as commuter bikes, touring bikes and even gravel bikes thanks to the big fat clearances.

I ride mine every day and love it.  What more can I say..'
