To design a true custom frame requires great skill and in depth knowledge, qualities that are not easily found today. There are many variables including frame materials and construction techniques, frame geometry and design.
Our design process takes into consideration :
● Characteristics of the rider, all the data gathered when carrying out the bike fitting. Remember it is the bike that must fit the rider and not the rider the bike.
● Frame materials.
● Tube profiles and design.
● Weight of the rider.
● Riding style of the rider.
● Discipline /use of the final bicycle.
There are various factors in the actual geometry of the frame that we look at :
● Top tube length.
● Head tube.
● Seat angle.
● Front wheel base.
● Rear wheel base.
