What you get

This bike is custom built to order, it takes 2-4 weeks to complete. The advantage here is you can talk to us, make changes, get your preferred crank, gear ration and bar/stem size.

Bike is built to ride with the steerer cut to your liking, brakes blead and tires installed (tubeless and tube type optional) We then do the minimal disassembly to box and ship.

When it arrives you can expect to have to put the front wheel in, seatpost into the frame and mount the handlebar to the steerer. You might need a bike shop to help, if you have ever shipped a bike before you should be fine doing this alone.

Get us in the chat. We are here to make this happen for you.
