So you're interested in ordering a bike? Here's how the process works:
Contact me and we will have a discussion about the type of bike you want. We’ll discuss the type of riding you plan to do and how you want to use the bike. I'll then provide you with a quote based on our discussion.
Once you agree with the quote I'll request a $500 deposit and add you to my build list.
Before I start your design we'll work on getting you fit. I'll use your fit metrics to create a BikeCAD drawing of your frame design. The BikeCAD design will provide not only the frame design but also all of your positional settings for the saddle and handlebars. This is a good time to consider your paint options and finalize your component choices.
When I get close to starting your frame I'll order your tubing and other parts for the frame. After receiving everything…the magic begins! I’ll cut, miter and braze your tubes into a complete frame based on your BikeCAD design.
When I'm finished your frame will be sent to the painter, painted and returned to me. While it’s at the painter I’ll order your parts and prepare them for installation on your new frame.
When your bike build is completed, I’ll prepare your bike for delivery. If you're near me, we will arrange a time to meet for you to pick up your new bike. If you aren’t nearby I’ll arrange to have your bike delivered to you. I can have the bike sent directly to you or to your local shop for them to set up for you.
The only thing left to do is ride and enjoy your new bike!
