A BELGIAN FAMILY BUSINESS


Thompson Bicycles is a Belgian family business set up in 1921 by Hector De Smet in the town of Geraardsbergen, home of the “Muur van Geraardsbergen” which became famous through the Tour of Flanders.

As soon as it was founded, Thompson started full in- house production, from design to frame building, painting and assembling. Thompson bikes quickly found their way to the front of the professional peloton with famous wins in the 1942 Tour of Flanders by “Iron” Briek Schotte and in 1954 the Tour of Belgium was also won on a Thompson by Roger Decock.

With a deep racing heritage, Thompson bikes are available in the UK with a bespoke approach to building your dream bike. You design it, we build it, and in just 4-6 weeks you’ll be riding it! Stand out from the crowd and start building your dream bike today.
