Pendle Bike Racks: The story that started with a question
A chance conversation among friends back in the 1970s germinated the seed of what would become our business today.
Brothers, Eddie and Ray Smith, were asked by a family friend if they could design a bike rack for his car. It turned out they could and enjoyed doing so.
Fast forward to the present day and Pendle Bike Racks is a business renowned for a wide range of quality racks and trailers, designed, and manufactured right here in Nelson, Lancashire.
Not a bad return from an off-the-cuff request.
Used Europe-wide, made in Nelson
At Pendle Bike Racks, we are passionate about our roots. Aside from being one of the most beautiful regions in the UK, Pendle is our home. It’s where we grew up, where the business started, and where we maintain an exceptionally talented Pendle-based workforce.
Steeped in history and intrigue, Pendle is also the perfect mirror to our brand. With 50 years of design and manufacturing behind us, powered by a ceaseless curiosity about the ways in which we can innovate and refine, our brand is Pendle. And Pendle is our brand.
Wherever you are in the UK or wider Europe, the product you receive from Pendle Bike Racks comes with a story that amounts to much more than the tough steel that we weld and bolt together.
No compromise on quality. Ever.
We’ve never tried to be something we’re not. We know that there are cheaper racks and trailers out there. We know that we could compromise on quality and ramp up production volumes to compete with the bigger, online retailers.
But we don’t do that, and we never will.
Our brand has grown and consolidated its place in the market because our customers know they pay a bit more to get an asset they can rely on for years. An asset designed to go anywhere in the world and come back as strong as when it left us. We’re so confident of this, we offer a lifetime guarantee on our products.
Ultimately, it’s all about you
Quality counts for little if you end up with a rack or trailer that isn’t right for your needs. It’s for this reason we take time to understand your needs before you make a purchase.
How many bikes/trikes do you have? What type? What size? Do you want a towbar-mounted bracket, or roof-mounted option? What will you be using the trailer for?
Our story started with one question; it’s only right that yours starts with a few.
Pendle Bike Racks: Your link to adventure
The purchase of a bike or trike is about much more than a device that gets you from A to B. It comes with aspirations of better fitness, enhanced well-being, and adrenaline-fueled adventure. You’re not just buying a bike or trike; you’re buying your way into a lifestyle.
Our mission is simple. We want you to take that lifestyle anywhere and everywhere. We want to connect you to the adventures you didn’t think possible and with the steadfast confidence that your bike/trike is always safe and secure on every journey.
