Moving away from “off the shelf” bikes

Making the decision to buy a new bike, and deciding what type of bike you need is a very personal choice. Bikes are as much an aesthetic expression of personal style, as they are a functional tool, and sometimes an off the shelf bike will not quite offer that uniqueness that you require. Whether it is a complete custom frame made to your measurements (in any colour you could imagine), or simply adding some new wheels or groupset, Velosport will have an option for you.

On this page you will see some of our complete custom builds and what goes into having a bike built from the ground up. If you would like any additional information about custom build options, please contact us at info@velosport.co.uk or call us on 020 9780 1978.
