Custom Builds

Bike Builds

Anyone can go to the bike shop and get an off-the-peg bike. It’ll be one identical to many hundreds of others knocked out of a factory somewhere. How about I build you a one-off absolutely custom bike to meet your needs? It’ll be meticulously assembled using the correct greases and anti-seize compounds, all bolts will be torqued up to their factory specs. If you have previous bike fit measurements, it can be setup to match these (this service costs a little extra).

If you supply the frame, I can supply the groupset and finishing kit. I have accounts with most of the big brands so groupsets from Shimano, SRAM or Campagnolo and finishing kit from Fi’zi:k, Ritchey, Thomson, Deda, Pro, Fabric, San Marco, Selle Italia, Prologo to name but a few.

And if you need some wheels, I can build your dream hoops too! (See below for more details).

Bike build labour costs start from £100. Please call or email for more details.

 

Wheel Builds

I can build you a pair of wheels to your exact specifications. I have built a lot of wheels over the years, having done a stint building wheels for Zipp, where the tolerances on spoke tensions and trueness were second to none.

I build with a variety of stock components such as Chris King, DT Swiss and Hope Technology hubs: Stans, Velocity, H Plus Son and DT Swiss rims: Sapim and DT Swiss spokes. Wheels are build to exact tensions using an in-house calibrated spoke tension gauge, to a maximum run out of +/- 0.1 mm.

Most of my wheels come with a spoke breakage and truing guarantee for the life of the wheel meaning that if your wheels go out of true and need a tweak or you break a spoke (perish the thought) I’ve got it covered.

I price wheel builds individually, no two are the same. Please call or email for more details.
