Having a bike built to your specific needs is incredibly rewarding. We have the knowledge and patience to walk you through the process and will explain the options to you, so you can make an informed decision. At the end of it, you’ll have your perfect bike, made just for you. These usually include hand-built wheels, which offer strength and integrity over an equivalently priced factory built wheel.
We happily do custom builds on Surlys (usually have a handful of frames in stock) or any other brand we can nab frames from, or if you find your own frame elsewhere in the world, we can help you build it to the spec you want. If you can dream it up, chances are we can make it a reality. We can source Rohloff, SON hubs and light systems, and all sorts of great stuff. We also use a business in town for powder coating – they do a great job, so if you’re hankering for a certain colour, don’t think you’re limited to what’s on our wall!
Pictured right below is an Electra Townie 7D with the now-defunct Xtracycle Free Radical, retro-fitted with a Bobike child seat. We also sell the Xtracycle Edgerunner – their very own cargo bike.
Here’s a small sampling of some of the bikes we’ve built in the past, as well as some spiffy parts that you could use on your next custom bike!
Below is a custom Pashley Soveriegn Princess for a customer that we customised (to an 8 speed) and accessorised to the hilt, replete with Brooks’ saddle, grips, panniers, mud flaps and tool bag.
