Cooper Bikes building award winning E-bikes, single speed, fixed and geared bicycles for the city. Cooper Bikes is the bicycle division of the Cooper Car Company, the company behind the original Mini Cooper and F1 champions in 1959 and 1960. Founded by John Cooper the most radical automotive engineer in racing history. Flying in the face of conventional wisdom, he was the first man to build a rear-engined racing car, and the first to win a Formula1 race with one. Cooper is a brand forged in the furnace of disruption.
In 2009, Mike and Charlie Cooper, John’s son and grandson, exasperated by the state of the once great British Cycle industry, revisited this Cooper ‘sideline’. Together they designed a range of modern bikes that utilised the engineering, design and innovation that made the brand famous. It’s been an honour for us to play a small part in the design side of such a truly iconic brand.
