After an initial conversation with the client to make sure a Kumo* is the right bike for you, a non-refundable/non-transferable deposit of $1000 is placed and your spot on the build list is secured.
When the time comes for work to commence a consultation in person is had, we discuss:
- Riding style
I strongly recommend a visit to the workshop for this process, but if this is not possible I can advise on the best way to supply the required measurements.
Once the build has started you will be updated at key stages of the build. This will give you an insight into the process and you will see how much care is taken when delivering your one of a kind Kumo.
Once the frame is complete, it is sent to Velopaint for a high end paint finish. When the bike is complete, full payment is due and you are able to ride it away, or I can ship it to you. However I prefer to hand it over in person so a full shakedown ride can take place and any minor adjustments can be made on the go.
*To buy a Kumo Cycles bike is to buy the complete, engineered and perfectly set up package. Kumo Cycles is a stockist of many respected brands and I only use components that will compliment the frame and work flawlessly.
I will only build a frame/fork alone under special circumstances.
