Introducing the Twist

We’re stoked to announce the launch of our brand new bike.

Introducing the Starling Cycles Twist.


The Starling Cycles Twist is the love-child of a Swoop and a Murmur with a monster-truck 29″ wheel up front and a fast, fun and flicky 27.5″ wheel out back.

With 160mm rear travel, mullet wheels and plenty of tyre clearance, it’s built to party.

The 29″ front wheel offers a ton of gyroscopic stability for monster-trucking through rough terrain.

The 27.5″ rear wheel means fun and flicky riding, great manoeuvrability and back-wheel-good-times.


✔ Hand built in Reynolds 853

✔ Available in 3 sizes

✔ 27.5″ and 29″ wheels

✔ Max 160mm front and rear travel

✔ NEW: Shorter travel options available

✔ Demo rides available

✔ Available now

The Twist has 160mm travel on the rear and is built for a 160mm fork. The Twist also marks the start of our new adjust able travel options – all bikes are now available with options for reduced travel, with more info available here.

Frames are constructed from custom butted Reynolds 853 tubing, chosen for their combination of lightweight and strength.

Tubes are combined with lasercut and machined steel parts, resulting in a frames where simplicity and a lively feel.

Like all of our bikes, it’s built to go fast and is beautifully simple to setup, ride and maintain.

Twists are available as frame only (with or without shock starting at £1770) and as complete bikes, starting at £3300.

You can learn more about the Twist over on our Starling Twist product page here.
