Bespoke Racing Bikes
Our ethos is very simple. A degree difference in the seat tube angle or head tube angle is more important than a press fit bottom bracket or 30 grams weight saving. We can design you a bike that takes into account the stiffness, handling, and comfort that you want. If you can control every angle you will end up with a better bike and we can do this. As a retailer, it’s much easier to sell a ready made bike or stock frame but in our eyes, there are too many compromises for the customer. This is why we sell one bike at a time, measuring, designing and equipping a bike for each individual customer. The words custom and bespoke are used a lot in the cycle industry but our bikes truly are made for each customer.
The process of buying a made-to-measure bike starts with an appointment at our showroom near Portsmouth. Here, we will measure you, and finely tune your position on a bike measuring jig. You then choose the frame best suited for your needs and budget and we will help you spec the bike to optimise the performance. The geometry drawings are then sent to the frame builder and your unique dream bike is put into production. A certain number of ‘Italian weeks’ later, your bike will be ready for final fitting and collection.
