Starling Mumur Trail review by PinkBikeField Test: Starling Murmur - The Steel Rock Crusher
"Proved itself to be a solid choice for all-around trail riding, a realistic option for those who want a 140mm bike that can double as an enduro machine, and a truly enjoyable bike to ride.."
Starling Roost Hardtail review by The Loam WolfThe Brand New Roost Stainless Steel Hardtail
"The Roost isn’t a sickly slack ‘ardcore hardtail. Neither is it a spindly and steep trail whippet. It’s a proper go-anywhere, do-anything all-rounder that we’ve built for local laps and adventures further afield. It’s as home on a big mountain epic as it is your after-work power lap or the hardtail category at your next enduro."
Starling Mumur Enduro review by SIngletracksThe Starling Murmur Enduro: A Soulful and Highly Capable Steel Mountain Bike
"That smooth comfort equates to higher speeds, which is why I feel this could be an enduro race bike for someone as much as a sweet mid-travel adventure ride. If you’re looking for a do-it-all ride, and your “all” doesn’t include winning climb times, the Murmur is worth a long look."
Starling Twist review by Enduro MTB magazineStarling Twist review – A mullet that plays to the strengths of steel
"If the classic skinny lines of a steel-framed bike get you hot under the collar, you will find the Starling a thing of beauty. Playing to the strengths of steel, the mullet Twist is a refreshing concept that puts fun front and centre. A simple and effective tool for after-work shreds, not for finding the fastest line but the most fun."
Steel Hardtail MTB Frames Made in the UK
