Bespoke Bicycles / Custom Bikes

November 26th, 2008

Bespoke bikes is a huge business, I can’t see why none of you custom bicycle builders arent’ webbing it fully! I am looking for a little bespoke bicycle builder in outer london, I know the guys name but I lost his number and for the life of me I can’t find him anywhere online! But when I started the search I realised – theres not many of you doing much online?

I have seen some excellent bike frames built custom and stuck on forums but I havent seen a decent website dedicated to bespoke bicycles since searching the web last for bike pornography (which can I say is a monthly thing that I revel in doing!)

So come on all you bespoke bicycle guys – let me know where you are, get web-able or at least tell me about yourselves ;) we all love bespoke bikes so where are the real pro makers?

    I think there are quite a few places you can find online that will do custom bikes. I imagine alot of them aren’t online because they the internet tends to be a place that bargains are searched for, and a custom bespoke bike setup is not something that the builder is going to offer on the cheap. That being said, it is not too difficult to get frameset and even full bikes built to custom specifications. It kind of depends on what you consider a bespoke bike. Do you mean every inch of the frame custom to your body? Do you want a builder to build a bike to your specifications or somewhere in between. A couple that I can think of offhand are makers of the Flying Gate frame. The have couple different frame options that can be built to your specifications. I do not know if they can measure you etc but they make every frame custom for whomever orders it – and the flying gate is insane. The down side is I dont think they build up the bike after the frame. Another option is, from what I know they just assemble bikes to custom specs but dont build frames. And another would be, I think they get their frames built offsite and then build up the bike. Regardless these options are all one way or another bespoke bicycle.

    I’m seeing a LOT more fixed gear bikes around here. Example, I just went to a Cake show (they suck btw) and there had to be at least 10 fixies parked outside.
