Brett came to us with an idea for a custom built Bitmap hardtail a few weeks back. First time out he won a Northern Downhill Series race on it, so we thought we'd take a look at this unusual but clearly very fast bike.
Richard's a Sheffield local and we see him out riding in the woods every now and then. He was stoked on the local brand thing and wanted to stick with British brands for his build, so we called in Hope and Burgtec to finish the job. The results are tidy...
Burgtec is the definition of a British rider owned brand, making some of the best components out there. When the opportunity came up to spec Burgtec components on our bikes, we weren't going to let that pass. We're now offering Burgtec bars, stem, grips & saddle as standard on our top-end bikes.

There's been a lot of buzz around the new Bitmap hardtail, which we designed to be as fast and fun as possible. With that in mind, we built it around the latest wide rims and tyres. But loads of people are asking if you can run a 'plus' tyre so we gave it a go. Read More
Watch a Bitmap Pro being built from bare frame to full bike in our latest bike build video. This is how we put all our bikes together; one at a time with the utmost care. With Obi the dog on hand to check everything. Read More
Recently we sold the 300th Airdrop Edit. As milestones go, it's not massive but it did cause me to think and take stock a little bit. I did some analysis on who's bought them and where, so I thought I'd share that. Warning: may contain geek stats.
This is my personal bike. I spend a lot of time testing new things and trying out different setups, so I don't always have my 'own' bike and the spec tends to change, but right now this is what I'm riding. And I love it. Read More
A stealth Edit v2 built around an orange Fox SLS spring? Yes please. Kris asked us to put together this beauty of a custom build and we were very happy to oblige...
Last week we launched the Airdrop Bitmap
, our new alloy hardtail. It's had a great response, so we though it would be good to get some insight into how we designed and developed it.
Custom builds are what we do best at Airdrop Bikes. Alice had a special request: she wanted a bike built to her very own spec with one-off custom decals of her own design. Working with Merge Decals we made it happen. Read More
The 2018 Howard Street Dual lived up to all the hype. Amazing racing on a purpose built urban course, some of the world's top riders and an awesome result for Airdrop Bikes. Get all the results and watch the replay in our full race report. Read More
Ollie Ballington is one of our youngest customers at 14, but he's fully committed to riding his bike already. He and Noah Rusbridge put together this Edit of Ollie shredding his local trails at Blackrocks. Read More
