Highpath Engineering for Specialist Cycle Products and Services

Highpath Engineering Limited is a small engineering company providing specialist cycle products and services for cyclists who find the ‘standard’ drivetrain does not fit their needs. Chris Bell designed and manufactured Pulse Products from a small workshop in rural Wales for many years, offering a range of specialist services to cyclists across the world. Chris has been forced into early retirement by ill-health, but Highpath Engineering Limited is ensuring that his inspired designs continue to be available to the public.

Highpath Engineering Current Products

Crank Shorteners

Offering a unique, flexible ‘bolt on’ solution for cycle cranks that are found to be too long. Available in two sizes and a variety of finishes, these CNC machined aluminium shorteners give a choice of pedal holes for crank length customisation.

Each shortener is supplied with a full fitting kit that is designed for maximum rigidity in use.

Bicycle Crank Shortening

We can also permanently shorten your cranks (subject to design) . Using purpose built jigs to ensure accuracy, we can shorten your aluminium cranks to your requirements on a CNC milling machine.

Swing Cranks

Another unique and adaptable CNC produced product that allows those with a leg impairment to cycle again in comfort.

Combined with one of our Shorteners, or with your own shortened crank, the Swing Crank allows wide choice of movement circles to aid the cyclist’s pedal action. Many cyclists who thought they would never ride a bike again due to knee and hip problems have used Pulse Swing Cranks to return to cycling.

Available in Standard and Long versions for bicycles, and Standard and 4-hole versions for recumbents, trikes and exercise bikes.

Pedal Extenders

Designed to increase your foot spacing while cycling to individual needs.

Manufactured from sturdy stainless steel, these easy to fit spacers allow the pedals to be moved outward by 23mm.

Cassette Spacers

Shimano-Campagnolo cassette conversion kits and custom spacers*

*Currently unavailable, but we are due to restart the manufacturing these adaptable kits soon.
