the ultimate riding machines
I am Mike Hickman the creator, designer and builder of Hickman Bikes and I, like many other specialist frame builders operate on a "One Man Brand" basis. As such we are all very keen to attract potential customers to our special, purpose built bikes by promoting so called unique features that appear to make one brand better than another.

This key feature of my design is achieved by its ability to position both the saddle and the handlebars independently to each other and relative to the crank centre according to the rider's physical build and preference. This is all done without compromising on a specific conventional frame size or being limited by a standard fixed handlebar stem length, angle or height. Furthermore Hickman Bikes can be adjusted to suit an individual's style of riding. This can range from the extremes of a low, compact stance for road racing to an upright, more relaxed touring style or indeed anywhere inbetween.

Whatever your style a Hickman Bike can still be adjusted to obtain your very own optimum riding position that is essential for maximum performance, comfort and enjoyment.
Hickman Bikes are constructed using a purposeful space frame that provides the perfect interface between rider and bike. With internal cable routing the frame design emphasises the simple clean lines whilst conveying a certain elegance that belies its inherent strength and ridgidity where it is needed most. A Hickman Bike really is unique, standing out amongest all other bikes and more than satisfies a rider's desire for individualism. Furthermore, once the positional adjustments have been made and you try out a Hickman Bike for yourself you will realise that they really are :-
