Finding the right components for a custom built racing bike ideally fitted to your growing sprog can be a challenge- we know! It is a very specialist category requiring expert attention to detail. We have cherry-picked 8 junior custom build specialists across the UK to make it easy.
You may have noticed some photos on our website or spotted kids at cyclo-cross or triathlon events riding unusually large, adult sized, wheels. Some kids as young as 6 years old ride a 700c wheel. (Including our own!) Before you read any further, this article contains bike-riding geekery!
Designed in Derbyshire, England and launched in 2010, the goal at Forme has been simple: to create a product that encourages people to ride more, become fitter, and enjoy a more sustainable, hassle free cycling experience. Quality bikes are the outcome of our lifestyle and decades of personal involvement in cycling.
We sell our bikes exclusively via over 300 specialist bicycle retailers throughout the UK. You can find your nearest retailer using our dealer locator. Learn more about why we support local bike shops here.
Why don’t you have any 24'' or 26'' cyclocross bikes?
Our bikes are built to last with premium grade, lightweight aluminium frames and forks. They are also equipped with best in class, high quality components. The improved quality ensures our bikes hold much of their value, they have a sustainable lifecycle and don't end up in landfill. Due to strong re-sale value, our bikes arguably work out cheaper in the long run than many budget low quality bikes if they are taken care of. Forme junior bikes are sold by over 300 retailers in the UK and we are the leading brand for the UK's largest specialist junior bike provider so hopefully these numbers speak for themselves and give you the confidence you are looking for if you haven't heard of Forme before.
Why do you use disc brakes on cyclocross bikes?
Cyclocross bikes are used on terrain with very mixed ground conditions often prone to clogging with mud. Disc brakes provide a more consistent braking performance in all circumstances. Cyclocross bikes with the old cantilever style brakes are almost obsolete now so our disc compatible Calver allows for many different wheel upgrade options too.
How can Forme be better than a junior only bike brand?
We are on a mission to get as many people riding bikes and enjoying cycling as possible. Kids bikes are just the start of the journey.
Our background, rounded experience as bike riders, parents and designers help us to take much more of an holistic approach when developing our high performance junior bikes. Most kids and grown up's can often remember their first bike so why stop offering choices when kids grow out of our junior bikes?
Forme bikes have a great team of people and have evolved to become the largest multi category British bike brand, thanks to the support of our customers, capable of scaling up our product range without compromising focus in any of the categories we represent.
Where are your bikes made?
We use a handful of factories for our range depending on the price point and category. This helps us to achieve the highest quality and value for each price point.
Our bikes are designed and tested in Derbyshire and the Peak District, England. They are then manufactured and assembled in Asia.
Almost every brand uses Asia-based production of frames and components as they are the global leaders of high-quality bicycle production. Some other high-quality brands claim to be made in Europe although they are usually only assembled in Europe. By working with our partner factories in Asia we are able to scale up our production as we grow, offer more competitive prices and deliver bikes to our retailers more frequently.
What quality guarantee do you offer?
We offer a lifetime guarantee on all our frames from the first owner. All other components are also guaranteed for 1 year from the day of purchase. The guarantee does not cover normal wear and tear, damage from a crash or poor maintenance.
Please register your bike from point of purchase to activate your guarantee with us and ensure you keep a copy of your receipt. Should you experience any problem please contact the retailer you purchased from and they will handle the process efficiently with our customer services team.
