Frequently Asked Questions

How are our bike prices calculated?

The bikes which you see on our website were assembled with components, accessories and wheels available at the time of the build and to the preferences and specification of the customer and for that reason we show indicative prices. These components and wheels (and their respective prices) tend to change with each new model year. For current prices for your bike build, please contact us so that we can advise you about current component and wheel availability and prices.

How are our frame prices calculated?

The frame prices shown on our website are basic prices for a frame and fork, custom painted in a single colour. Because each of our custom frames is a unique creation to customer specification, please note that there may be an additional charge for special graphics, airbrushing, metallic paint, extra colours, etc. Please contact us if you would like a quotation for a specific design, finish or colour combination.

How long will my bike build take?

This will depend mainly on the frame material. Cro-Mo and aluminium frames normally require 40 working days. Fillet brazed and carbon frames require longer – normally around 60 working days.

Why should I choose a handmade frame?

Our custom bikes are made-to-measure just for you, depending on your specific fit requirements and intended use.

It is not necessary for you to visit us personally to make your order. A visit to a BikeFitting station anywhere in the world will enable you to be measured so that we can calculate your frame size and geometry from your body measurements.

A custom bike meets the exact needs of a rider depending on their body proportions. For example, riders of the same height often have differences in leg, arm and torso length, flexibility and preferred riding position.

Mass produced bikes in ‘stock’ sizes very often require some compromise by the rider in terms of component choices to find their ideal riding position. In extreme cases this results in a bike which is uncomfortable and doesn’t handle well.

A competitive cyclist can spend many hours each day in training on their bike. A poor position can severely compromise comfort, aerodynamics and power, as well as causing pain and injury.
