Our clients choose the color combination and determine what set of components and details they desire.

Currently we’re constructing frames from Columbus steel tubes, an Italian manufacturer with a long-standing history in cycling. We are working with their latest designs and models, which have achieved outstanding technical and structural properties. The advantages of our steel frames are in their lightweight, mechanical resistance and durability eetdagboek. Our bikes are noted for there perfect dynamics and first class riding properties.
