Contact Dan to discuss the build of your new Highwheel
"Serious bikes for real riders"
A quote will be given once a design brief is established, a build slot is confirmed and allocated with a $1,000 deposit. Final payment is required on or before delivery (no exception).
Typical build time is between 3 and 6 months depending on final specifications and requirements, electroplated parts tend to take longer due to my suppliers work loads and any unusual individual machine can take longer. Please discuss with me if you have any impending time constraints, there are 24hrs in the day if needed although I do need to juggle, being a father, a partner and the business admin.
The wheel size and geometry is selected for the measurements of the rider taking into consideration the intended use, including crank length. The bike can be built to excel in high speed, long distance, hill climbing, traffic and parades or a balance of these requirements.

Wheel sizing and geometry to fit (virtually unlimited, usually between 44" and 60")
