Hands down, the most important trait of a bicycle. If the bike doesn’t fit correctly, it will affect the rider’s ability to ride the bike fluidly, free from thought. Your bike should corner easily, descend confidently, and climb symbiotically with you. A proper fitting bicycle affords these characteristics by putting your weight where it needs to be; you are balanced and ready to act and react with no hesitation. Without the fit, the rest doesn’t matter.
Each one of our distinct models are designed and built to achieve great balance, limit compromise and maximize performance within an intended purpose. They must live up to our tough standards, that is, the standards of a life long cyclist, racer, professional bike mechanic, aerospace level TIG welder, professional CAD expert and veteran bike designer. They are the frames we build for ourselves and the frames we ride everyday.
