The road bike is the older brother among bicycles. But the last few years have seen some quite dramatic changes in material and components. Many riders have also discovered that the road bike can be more versatile. Cyclo cross and gravel road bikes has gained in popularity and has widened the use from pavement to dirt roads. Despite the advancement of new materials we believe that steel and titanium frames are a great alternative. The frames are light, durable, long lasting and very comfortable. And for a relatively economic price we can offer a fully customized fit with any desired feature, such as disc brakes, wider tire options, fender and rack mounts.
We offer road bikes in cromoly and titanium.
Cromoly is a relatively economic choice and a very reliable frame material. It is also the most common tube material for custom frame builders so there are many options for customization. A quality steel frame has become the reference for all high end bicycle frames and has cult status among avid and experienced riders. A high end steel road bike can be surprisingly light and will make for a very comfortable and livly ride - a quality that will make you ride longer and finish less beaten.
Titanium is the ultimate material for bicycles. Period! It is light, strong, impact resiliant, non corrosive, long lasting, and has that magic "carpet" feel. The lack of buzz from the road is one of the factors that makes it the final bike for experienced riders. The titanium tubes we use for bicycles are the most costly and difficult to manufacture. That explains the high price tag. Titanium bikes can't be made cheap! So when it comes down to craftmanship, strength/weight and longevity there is no way around titanium!
