The Babel Bikes are high quality, high-end bikes built from expensive parts and the price reflects this. Because we are supplying direct to the public, not via distributors and retailers, the price you pay is only covering our costs – not theirs as well. So we firmly believe that we are giving a lot of value to our customers for the price, without the additional mark-ups that traditional distributors and retailers would add.

To secure your Babel Bike you only need to place a deposit now, the remainder will fall due prior to delivery. We will also be offering credit facilities so that the bikes can be bought with 36 monthly payments. The price per-month will be less than taking a bus or car to work (assuming average travel distances), and after three years you will own your Babel Bike outright.

We aim to deliver our Babel Bikes to our first customers in May 2016 and have created a detailed schedule in order for this to occur. Our team are experienced members of the cycle industry and between them have created hundreds of thousands of bicycles before. We have highly experienced manufacturing partners and factories in China and Taiwan lined up already. There is of course much work to do in the year ahead, but we have a first class team and will keep you fully posted on progress over the course of the coming year. The Babel Bike has two international patents pending.
