Custom Bike Fit Case Study

Custom-made Colnago c64 disc in art deco blue

Our client wanted something a bit different. Something unique. His dream bike.

Challenge accepted.

This custom-made bike is so beautiful, it could serve as a centre piece in a living room (if it were big enough). That’s because our customer wanted something that was amazing to look at, as well as perfectly practical.

So, what did we do?

  • The Bike Tailor custom build and fit

the build

Colnago frame: one of the most desirable brands in the world, Colnago hand make these unique frames from the finest carbon fibre and this C64 model is light and durable.

Custom painted in Art Deco blue, this bike is striking and cool. The colour harks back to the feel of our childhood Racers, yet is bold and timeless enough to make the rider feel stylish and contemporary on his rides.

We used Chris King hubs – they provide the all-important engagement this rider needs for a powerful ride. They also add an unmistakeable ‘angry-bee’ sound, loved by Chris King enthusiasts around the world.

The hand built, Enve wheels are SES 3.4 disc, carbon fibre and perfect for an aerodynamic ride.

Not forgetting the finishing touches: the wheels are finished with matching Art Deco blue valve caps. No detail too small when it comes to your perfect bike.

the bike fit

The bike fit is what we do as standard when we build the perfect bike. As we build, we measure distances between the rider’s body and the bike, as well as the pressure points and optimum position for power and speed.

A great cycle fit will increase comfort and minimise the risk of injury, plus it improves power and efficiency. This gives our rider the confidence that they are in the best possible position and can enjoy the custom-made bicycle for years to come.

We mean it when we say this is a custom-made bike. It was made for the rider, with his personal specs and ideal features at the heart of the design.
