Our frame build process starts exactly like it sounds with a frame, and some technical expertise.
With this time lapse video we are able to show you the full process in under a minute! We’re not quite that fast though. Usually, your bike will spend a couple days with us here in house before it gets packaged up safely and sent to you.
We lovingly go through and hand build each and every carbon bike you purchase through Framed. Starting with the fork, and headset, we secure down the front end of your bike first. Then, we turn our attention to your bottom bracket, and crankset. These bearings respectively are the lifeblood of your bike! From there the crank and brake calipers are installed. Then the rear wheel slots in. After this point, we slot in the front wheel and start on the nitty-gritty stuff, like aligning your brakes, and installing derailleurs. Finally, we lock down the little stuff, like your seat post and grips to ensure a proper fit.
