Custom Builds

Custom Builds at Cardinal Vintage Bike Shop!

At Cardinal Vintage Bike Shop, we do custom builds made for the riding you do. Start with a frame from Ritchey, Soma, New Albion, and Surly (or any other), then pick out the components that you love for your riding:

Step One: Pick up a frame

The first step in building up a custom bike is getting a frame. Of course, if you have one already or are looking to upgrade an older one that's great too!

Step Two: Get some wheels

In order to roll smooth you'll need a nice wheelset. 26", 650b, 29er, 700c, you name it, we've got 'em.

Step Three: Get a groupset

Groupsets are what drive the whole bike forward- they come in a variety of gearing and size combinations so don't hesitate to get in touch to confirm your choices.

Step Four: Brakes are important

Whether your frame is setup for rim or disk brake styles, we'll be able to get you stopping in style.

Step Five: All the rest

You can really get creative when it comes to all the rest of the pieces- go ahead and color coordinate to your heart's content when it comes to the seatpost, saddle, stem, bars, grips and all the rest.
