I hand-build each frame from scratch in my workshop in Salt Lake City. I don’t stock bikes or have standard models. I build bikes one at a time. Pricing can vary depending on options and special requests. However, I’m a reasonable guy, and try to keep things relatively simple. The following prices will give you a good feel for what it would cost to get a bike from me in most circumstances.
A basic one-color frame starts at $1250. Add a matching fork for $250. My basic frames come powder coated with two water bottle mounts and cable guides. The fork will feature a straight 1 1/8″ steerer. Additional braze-ons or features like tapered steerers might require additional charges depending on complexity. I won’t surprise you, though. Talk to me, and we will figure all of this out in advance.
I can add a Shimano STePS electric assist system to any bike for an additional $1500. This is a mid-mount system that includes the motor, battery, and controller, and will give you about 40 miles of range using a fairly aggressive boost setting. For many people commuting in a city, this is enough to get back and forth to work for a week or two on a charge. If you conserve the battery by using the assist feature only when you need a little extra help or set it to give you a gentler push, you can significantly extend the range.
Most of my customers want a complete bike, not just a frame and fork. The pricing for the build kit can vary by many times the price of the frame. A basic set of high-quality components starts at around $1000. I am happy to work with you to pick out appropriate parts, or you can specify exactly what you want.
