What Is The Bike For?

When you have decided to get a made to measure Frame – you should first decide what your intended usage will be.

The Dimensions on a frame generally are:

  • Top Tube & Seat tube lengths,
  • Seat angle,
  • Head angle / fork rake,
  • Bottom bracket height / stand over height,

It is important to understand that by altering one dimension on a frame, several others will be affected and it is sometimes necessary to balance all the variables into workable Frame dimensions .

So, your first consideration should be  – what are you going to use the bike for?

Even for the same rider – His / Her Road Race Bike , Time Trial Bike , Commuter Bike  and Training Bike could all have vastly different Frame Angles and measurements.

Only then should you sit down and discuss Tubing Options, Colour Scheme , Groupset etc.
