Hobbs of Barbican was one of the most sought after and highly respected of the many lightweight racing bikes that existed in the middle of the last century.

The marque remains popular with collectors today although there is little information about the company and its fine products on the Internet.

This website, which will hopefully grow as more information becomes available, is an attempt to plug that gap.

The information you'll find here is offered in good faith but corrections, suggestions and recollections from owners and ex-Hobbs employees are very welcome-as are photographs and literature relating to a classic name in bicycle history.

Special thanks are due to Bob Reid of Flying Scot fame for putting this website together and the Veteran Cycling Club's Hobbs specialist, Mervyn Cook, who provided much of the information contained within.
