With roots in aerospace testing, love of riding and a passion for building things Joe McEwan decided it was time he built himself a bike. A week long course with Dave Yates gave him the brazing skills he needed and with tubing in hand it was down to his shed and the beginning of Starling Cycles.
Named after the birds that roost in the tree above the shed Joe has built a name for Starling Cycles that has resulted in his bikes winning awards, praise from the MTB media and the freedom to build whatever bikes he and his customers want to ride.
Joe now has 6 bikes in his range including the much coveted Murmur 29 and his latest creation the Sturn, single speed downhill bike. Starling customers can buy a coaching and setup event place when ordering their bike, making sure their dream in steel is setup to perfection and their skills are tuned too.
