Temple Cycles was started by Matt while he studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bristol. In 2012, he started a classic bicycle restoration business, working with vintages from the 60’s through to the 80’s. In 2014 he realised the potential for creating something from scratch. He set off to design the perfect bike, combining what he loves about vintage bikes, with the advances in materials, manufacturing and technology that have since filtered into the bike world.
By early 2015, after an intensive design and prototyping phase, Temple was ready to launch its first two models. Temple Cycles has built a reputation for exceptional products and outstanding service, yet nothing makes us prouder than seeing our bikes out in the wild.
Steel is an incredible versatile material, and it’s actually perfect for making bike frames. The Adventure Disc frames are made from Reynolds 725 tubing, a higher grade of heat-treated steel for an even stronger ride. You can head far off the beaten track with confidence, and in the sort of comfort only steel can provide.
The result? A versatile range of bikes that each possess the timeless aesthetics of the old classics combined with brand new sustainable materials and technology that out-performs much of the competition.
A bike to take you anywhere. Traversing rough terrain, keeping pace on tarmac, or touring through hills and gravel, this bike can do it all.
A culmination of several years worth of ideas and prototyping, the Temple Road is a high performance Reynolds 853 steel road bike frameset.
Inspired by traditional club riding and a ‘just one bike’ mentality, we wanted to design a four-season machine that’s perfect for recreational rides, touring, and roadracing alike.
The Temple Road is both Di2 and mechanical groupset ready, and offers other modern touches in the form of disc brakes and internal routing.
