Searching for your dream bike? START HERE.
Because you deserve a bike that's as special as you are.
What is a semi-custom bike?
A semi-custom bicycle is built from the frame up to create something that is almost as unique as you. It doesn't come from a box, pre-packaged with stock components. And It's not built around the 'average' person's body of preferences.
Instead it's something that reflects who you -- your body, your lifestyle and your personality -- and your relationship to a bicycle. We work closely with you to choose the frame, the color, the components, the accessories to produce a bicycle that meets your needs, fits your body and makes you smile.
How do I get one?
Step 2: We'll set up a time to sit down to answers your questions, and learn more about who you are, what you want the bike to do and what your price range is so that we can build a bike around you and your needs.
Step 3: We'll take it from here. Depending on the options and components you choose, wait time for your new bike will be 4-8 weeks.
Step 4: You ride away into the sunset.
