We can Customize your bike! This can mean anything from swapping some parts and accessories out to make the bike look way cooler, and fit you much better. Or it can mean changing the wheel size and braze ons of the frame, like converting an old 27 inch wheel touring bike into s sweet 650b rando bike! Frame modifications, help with new color and add sweet exiting racks from Nitto, Compass, Velo-Orange, Soma, or hand made custom racks that do everything you want perfectly!

*$100 minimum

*$20 extra per braze on if you haven’t had your paint removed first. Any bike that's going to get more than one or two modifications will need to have the paint stripped first as we don't like breathing burning paint smoke. There are many strippers that charge about $40 to strip the whole frame.

*Addition labor will be charged if I have to remove, and or install any components/accessories in order to make repairs/modifications. $60 labor to strip the whole bike down to bare frame for mods and  or color.

Labor for rebuilding your bike back up after mods and new color (includes stripping the bike for mods):

Full overhaul with paint/powder coat prep:

$299 (single speeds). 

$399 (geared bikes).

*Includes full overhaul, and full paint clean up package, listed described in our labor menu.

*Labor only, parts and accessories not included.

Other services available, please contact us for a quote.

*Prices do not reflect cost of having a painter or powder coating place repaint your frame (We do not do paint in house, you will need to make those arangments. We can recommend places to you).  We only work on steel bicycle frames. And we will generally not perform work upon frames that have been chromed. 


All work has a handshake warranty. This means I will fix anything that goes wrong due to my workmanship for a reasonable amount of time tbd by us. Customer satisfaction is paramount and I will do what it takes to keep you happy and keep you as a customer. We’ve yet to ever have a single issue with our frame building work failing, but things happen and all builders have had to repair something in their career. Mechanical work on the other hand is a balancing act. Things come out of adjustment, cables stretch a tiny bit and shifting stops working. It happens once in a while and I will do little adjustments whenever needed for free for at least thirty days. After that standard rates off our labor menu apply.
