Platinum Custom Assembly - Get the Bike YOU Want

Today's bicycles are amazing and the breadth of options is often overwhelming. Still, with more models available than ever; it seems that sometimes you cannot find exactly the bike you want. A long-time client of mine was faced with exactly that situation - and so we crafted a solution.

And that is exactly why I offer the Platinum Assembly - to allow for custom options in addition to top-quality frame-up assembly.

Richard and I talked for some time before we arrived at a final solution; but much of the hows and whys were already a part of the conversation. We knew we would be taking a carbon road bike and doing a flat-bar conversion because it meets his riding position needs. When we located a bike that met our fitting demands (another area where Richard and I have worked closely for some time) and that met his satisfaction in terms of ride-quality: he pulled the trigger and we went to work.

This project started with a stock Trek Domane 5.2 - as pictured:

Allegro Referral Rewards

Referrals are the backbone of any successful and reputable business and a huge part of how I find new people to help. I consider it a giant compliment that my clients are satisfied enough to recommend my services to their friends and family.

I want to reward you for sending someone my way. Here's how the program works:

  • Have your friend or family member call me or send me their contact info.
  • They complete a repair or fitting appointment of any level or value.
  • I contact you with a referral bonus.
Simple, right? That's how it should be.

The rewards are as follows*
  • 10% off any product that I or my suppliers have in stock (that's right, special orders are eligible too).
  • 20% off labor pricing of any repair, overhaul, or fitting service (seasonal specials included).
Let's build this thing together and get you what you need to truly enjoy your cycling experience!

Thanks for the referrals, everyone!

*Reward values do not accrue with subsequent referrals. You have one reward bonus available until you use it regardless of the number of referrals - so use your bonus quickly so you continue to receive rewards! Program subject to change.

Bicycle Assembly

There are a variety of reasons you would need professional bike assembly:

~ You found a bargain online that will be shipped to you but don't have the time to assemble it your self or would prefer to have someone else do it to insure the job is completed properly.

~ You have been travelling with your bike for vacation or an event and need it reassembled after shipping it home.

~You found a great deal on a collectible frame set on craigslist and have a period-correct build kit to put on it and want it done right.

The proper assembly of your bicycle - according to manufacturer specifications - is the most important factor in assuring it consistently performs and lasts a long time. Correct torque values, bearing adjustment, spoke tension, and simple pride in workmanship all work together to deliver an enjoyable riding experience for many years.
