Bikes, bikes, bikes, that is all I am about.
Titanium bikes that is, I have dabbled in steel a few times but Titanium is where it is at. To my eyes there is no better material for bike frames, nothing has the corrosion resistance, the perfect balance of strength, weight, Young’s Modulus, and fatigue life. Yes Titanium can be beaten in each of these categories, but as a whole neat package, the ideal material for a custom one off frame that is made to last decades, Titanium will not be beaten!
I can make bikes of all breeds, Road, CX, Mountain, Dual-Suspension, Stride bikes, BMX, City, Fixie, Gravel Grinders and pretty much anything else imagined.
I don’t do models, and I don’t do set sizes.
Every bike is custom made based upon discussions with the client.
And sized to a professional fitting, clients requirements, or sizing done by myself.
Of course I guide my clients as best as I can, as I don’t want anyone to end up with a bad bike. But at the same time I don’t pretend to know all the answers and will not push my geometry on my clients.
Some of my frame specifications
I procure my Dropouts, BB, and other parts from Paragon Machine Works in USA, this is a well known and established supplier of frame building components for small frame-builders over the years.
I do tube butting in-house by non-centered grinding, externally butted, each tube is fully custom.
All my tubing is CWSR grade 9 unless specifically required otherwise.
I believe the English thread BSA is the best for Bottom Brackets.
I really like the 44mm semi-integrated head-tube, it allows for a whole combination of bearings and fork choices.
