Your custom bike build
We’ve done your homework for you, searching everywhere – we mean the entire globe – for only the best bike builders to help us create our custom builds. After visiting many factories and workshops, we have selected a small number of brands whose components we love to use all the time.

We are privileged to be a part of the global Festka family. This esteemed brand is located in the Czech capital, Prague. Personalised, flawlessly finished designs make this brand so special.
Since the company started in 2010, Festka has always used precision machines, with technology used in the aerospace industry. And, when only hand crafted will do, they use the talents of their top experts.
Officina (or ‘Workshop’) Dario Pegoretti creates stunning, steel bicycle frames. Using their skills in creativity and artistry, the Pegoretti team builds bikes and bike frames fatti con le mani (made with the hands) in Verona, Italy.
Pegoretti craftsmen and women are continually inspired by their founder’s unique vision – helped by their legendary coffee meetings – and today the workshop is still a beacon for riders who want something unique and honest, created with fastidiousness, precision, and style.
Mosaic Cycles was created by people who see a bike as more than just a bike. This group of master craftsmen and women believe bikes should be a form of self-expression leading you to personal success and many years of enjoyable rides. Founder Aaron Barcheck is a Master Builder and is dedicated to adapting his vision to new generations of riders. Mosaic bike frames are expertly made from either steel or titanium.
Since 2000 Parlee has blazed the trail with breakthrough designs. Always in the market for world firsts, Parlee was the first brand to produce a sub-900-gram carbon fibre road frame. (Later smashing the 800-gram barrier.)
Their designs have been recognised with major accolades, from Bicycling Magazine’s Editors’ Choice to Cycling Weekly’s Race Bike of the Year and Eurobike Design awards.
Award winning, made to measure titanium frames. Built one at a time, to order. Sturdy Cycles is based in Frome, Somerset and is run by Tom Sturdy, a bespoke bicycle builder & frame-building teacher.
Sturdy uses 3D printing to create frames. With this cutting-edge technology, these guys can create more sophisticated designs.
Tsubasa came first in Bike Radar’s Top 5 2020 Road Superbikes. (They labelled the Crow model ‘the superest super bike in all the land’.) Tsubasa makes all their bikes from carbon fibre, and can customise the geometry and stiffness of their frames, which we think is just great.
The frames themselves are remarkable to look at, as they use a resin that is UV and chemical resistant – not paint – giving them a very raw look that belies their meticulous creation.
