Custom Bikes

Custom Builds

Build your dream bike. We can help you select the best frame and components to meet your objectives and build it all up for you. This can the mountain bike that climbs as well as it descends, or a road bike with exactly the components and wheels you want rather than what a brand manager selects for you.

One of our favourite recent builds is a customer's titanium touring bike. They wanted the comfort, durability and low weight of a titanium frame, and they also wanted to specify the wheels, groupset, tyres, mudguards and rack they felt were right for them.

Another popular option is moving current component onto a new frame. For example, you may be happy with your wheels and groupset, but you're ready to upgrade your frame to something better suited to your current needs. We can remove all your current components, including your headset and bottom bracket, clean them and build them on your new frame.

Brompton bikes are sold worldwide, but they are made in west London, and Brompton is the UK’s largest bicycle manufacturer. We always have Bromptons in store, but did you know you can specify your own customised Brompton at no extra charge? 

Your options include gearing, colours, handlebars, mudguards, racks and bags and more. Here is a link to “Build your own Brompton”


Once you have built your bike on the Brompton site, you can select our shop from their store finder, and it will send us your specification. We'll get it ordered and build it up for you when the bike arrives. Their lead time is generally 4 - 8 weeks, and the majority of Brompton's we sell are custom builds.

If you have any questions about the process, or if you'd like to see some options first hands, pop into the shop, as we always have a number of Bromptons and accessories in stock.
