With all the buzz around the bamboo bikes, people sometimes ask if we are still building with carbon!. They keep seeing reviews like this from Cycling Weekly and this from Road.cc.
The answer is Yes! Carbon is still the mainstay here. We have been building carbon fiber bike frames since 1988. Our durable frames have performed well in world class competitions like the Hawaii Ironman and the Tour de France and the Olympics. Some very famous athletes have raced on our bikes, often under different brands.
Our long experience with carbon fiber gives us the advantage in knowing how to get the best ride quality and longevity by orienting the fiber in the most effective manner. The technical papers published here will help you cut through the marketing hype that is so common in this industry.
While we enjoy making custom frames (from 30 cm to 70 cm frame sizes), only about 12% of the population really needs a full custom frame. For the rest of us, you can get many custom options without paying for full custom.
