Ellis Briggs has been serving the cycling needs of Shipley and the surrounding area since 1936. We have the knowledge, skills and experience that only come with over 79 years of selling, repairing and manufacturing bikes. You can find our more about our history. The oldest custom steel framebuilders in the UK.


Bespoke Handmade Bikes and Frames

Unlike most bike shops we also manufacture our own bicycles. From start to finish our bicycles are manufactured in our workshops. Find out more about our bespoke bikes.

On our website you will find no mail-order and no online ordering because we believe the only way we can maintain our excellent service is to provide it in person. Internet shops cannot provide the advice and knowledge of our staff, who have over 130 years of cycling experience (collectively of course).

Bicycle Repairs

Our busy workshops are staffed by highly skilled mechanics who have experience in machines both new and old. We look after our customers and this is reflected in our workshop pricing. Find our more about bicycle repairs and servicing.

If you are looking for honest down to earth advice, please come and see us.

Bike Resprays and Frame Repairs

A large part of what we do at Ellis Briggs is restoring and renovating classic bikes and frames. We can respray them, fit period decals, repair frames and alter them to take modern equipment.

Our Products

We sell a vast range of bikes, clothing and accessories, which all share the same thing in common. Every item we have in stock is chosen because No.1 it meets our high quality standards, we only sell products that work, that we know you’ll be happy with and No.2 it represents good value for money.

We will never sell you a bike which isn’t correctly setup, safe and ready to ride. We think it is worth paying a little extra for piece of mind and hassle free ownership of your new bike. Unfortunately many people make the mistake of buying a bike online, which is one of the reasons our workshops are always busy.
