If you would like to visit us in the store, here is how the process works.
1. Choose your model
We make a wide range to suit all styles and disciplines. Our full range is available to view online and in-store, but don't worry if you're not sure what's right for you — we're here to help!
2. Have a fitting
We'll ensure that you'll ride in complete comfort and get the best performance from your bike. If you can't visit us in store, we can help with the fit by phone or email.
3. Make it your own
We'll work with you to choose components that suit your requirements, right down to details such as handlebar tape colour. We are here to advise on everything.
4. We build it
We'll assemble your bike in London. Once built, we'll arrange a time and date with you for the handover, where we'll run through everything and help with anything else you may need.
If you can’t book an appointment to visit us in-store, we can help by phone, email, or live chat
Custom for Condor
Our carbon tubes are made for us using three different types of carbon manufactured in Japan and the USA. Each layer features unidirectional carbon fibre (for strength), high modulus carbon fibre (to add stiffness), and ultra-high-modulus carbon, which adds both strength and stiffness, whilst being lighter than the previous two (but would be too harsh to ride if used just on its own). The tube is wrapped in a 1k weave for impact protection and toughness.
The fibres in our carbon are bound together with resins featuring nano particles. Construction using nano particles requires less resin, resulting in an overall frame weight reduction. Nano resin's microscopic particles are elongated rather than round, which improves the bond between resin and fibre as the surface area is greater. Secondly, frame vibration is dissipated as it travels through the frame and across the nano particles.
Tapered head tube
The tapered head tube significantly improves front end stiffness and creates a stable base for quick handling.
The thru-axle system, brought over from our off-road MTB cousins, offers a much more consistent wheel attachment, reducing brake rub and increasing safety. A thru-axle has a greater constant surface area, compared with a disc brake and traditional skewer, which means a stiffer base and torsional strength. We use a 12mm aluminium thru-axle because it provides the best weight to stiffness ratio for gravel and road riding. A thicker axle, similar to that use on an MTB, would be too heavy, whilst a thinner axle wouldn't have enough torsional strength.
