Custom Built Bikes
Welcome to the fascinating and addictive world of custom bike building. Here at Velocity Bikes we specialise in designing and building your dream bike. We are very proud of the fact that we are able to use our knowledge and experience to produce unique and specialist machines.
Custom builds are bikes built to a rider's own specification. We understand that sometimes standard production bikes don't meet the requirements which you require. Specifying every individual component of a bicycle can be an intellectual and creative exercise which results in a true work of art that will bring performance and pleasure for many years.
Not only are we able to assemble a bicycle around a standard 'off the peg' frame, but we also deal with several brands that are able to take our detailed measurements and instructions to craft a bespoke frame, sized, specified and finished exactly to meet your specific needs and desires. Custom frames can be hand made in either traditional double-butted steel, the latest aluminium tube sets or cutting-edge carbon fibre. We use the Bikefitting computerised measuring system in order to ascertain the perfect position on which to base a frame's geometry.
Whether its that dream road bike or that time trial speed machine, that dream XC race MTB or that rock munching free ride rig, we can fine tune a specification to suit your needs exactly.
You Choose - have it your way!Frame/Forks - Carbon, Aluminium, Steel or Titanium - you decide.
Groupset - Choose from Shimano, Campagnolo or Sram - just for starters.
Wheels - Hand built or pre built wheels - whatever takes your fancy.
Finishing Kit - FSA, ITM, Easton, Deda and Bontrager, the list goes on - time to make it your own.
All you need to do is select your frame and fork, groupset, wheels and finish kit. These are all the ingredients we need to custom build your dream machine. We do the rest, and can provide full consultancy in order for you to make the right descisions in order to arrive at a very, very special bike totally unique to you.
When the bike has been put together we do a final fitting (based on measurements and drawings given) so we can fine tune your riding position. The bike is also given a free first service which is taken before 6 weeks, this is to allow for cable stretch and components bedding in.
Our workshop is fully equipped and our mechanics are Cytech qualified with years of experience with all types of bikes.
