Custom steel bicycle prices

When you're choosing a builder to create your perfect bike, price will naturally be a factor and is something of a 'how long is a piece of string' question. To give you an idea of how our pricing works, please see below.

 

Road framesets (filed fillet-brazed frame, carbon fork and Chris King headset) start at £2800. Frame-only projects are taken on infrequently and at our discretion. Custom forks, stems, racks and other projects are POA.

What is included?

As standard, our base price includes:

 

  • Columbus Spirit and Life tubing

  • any style of head tube (1 1/8", tapered or 44mm)

  • a pair of our bespoke dropouts (these have a replaceable derailleur hanger as standard)

  • all necessary cable routing for rim or disc brakes

  • gear cable guides, whether it be cable or Di2

  • braze-on front mech hanger

  • two sets of bottle bosses

  • braze-on seat post clamp

  • stainless head tube badge

This is a starting-price breakdown and that you can customise your build as much or as little as you'd like to. For more detailed quotations, please get in touch.

Please be aware that we are not taking any extra orders for 2021 and our production model is changing significantly in 2022.

Which bike frame styles are available?

All varieties of frames are available, including commuter, road, mountain, touring and track styles. You can see examples of our previous work on our bikes page. We are also well acquainted with Larry Vs Harry cargo frames and can offer a customisation package to suit you.

 

We always use stainless steel braze-ons and faces in high wear areas, as this ensures nothing will rust, should your paint or powdercoat get chipped. Frames are also supplied with a post-paint anti-corrosion treatment.

Paint options

Paint is handled separately to your frame. We have an excellent painter that we work with and we are happy to finalise design and quotes for you,. We will also arrange the logistics of delivery and collection of your freshly painted frame. Payment will be made directly to the painter, therefore not included in pricing here.

Powdercoat can also be arranged and we have a local company that we use exclusively, we excellent results.
