The Setup® Brand was started around the year 2000 by a couple of design students with a passion for push bikes who
wanted to create a some tee’s for our crew to wear whilst messing around on bicycles.
We got our first T-Shirt design printed in the summer of 2000 and gave it to friends and riders based around our original local scene in Derbyshire, England.
We wanted to produce a clean graphic brand with quality casual garments for mountain bike riders to wear as much on the street as the trail. We felt other sports (skate and surf especially) have always had a great history of design orientated
clothing brands and we wanted to produce the same for the MTB generation.

In the past few years we have carved out our own style, never straying too far from our original brand focus of clean, bold, geometrical and typography based prints. Its still all about bicycles, specifically mountain bikes, although BMX, trails, fixie and even road now play a part.


We have expanded since our founding years, but are still owned and run by the same 2 riders, and still producing clean and fresh graphics on a quality apparel product.
Setup® now produces a larger than ever collection, made of new and classic designs hand printed onto our exclusive quality apparel by our own fair hands. Check out our online store for the full and ever expanding range.

If you see a rider wearing Setup® on the trails or the town say hi, they tend to be a friendly bunch!
