The ability to create your own bike is a dream of many cyclists, but often the cost and lengthy turnaround times are barriers towards achieving that dream.

You pick the colors. You choose the parts.

Frameset or Complete Bikes: The Custom Shop is designed to give you an individual and personalized experience creating the carbon gravel, cyclocross or mountain bike you want. We'll work directly with you to dial in colors, parts spec, wheel selection - right down to bar tape and sidewall color - from an endless array of brands and manufacturers. Now offering kit options from PNW, OneUp and Boyd!

You'll be in touch directly with one of the owners of Boltcutter who will walk you through the process step by step.

Step 5: Complete Build Or Special Parts Requests

People are particular about parts, that's why we've partnered with an array of brands to put together the build kit you choose. 700C, 650B, 29"... we ride what we sell and have years toying around with kit for different riding experiences. Build kit parts are available from most major brands and some other great companies like PNW, OneUp, HiFi, Boyd... and the list goes on.

Looking to pull off the complete custom experience? Ask about custom wheel graphics available on HiFi Wheelsets and custom handmade head tube badges by Rhys May Jewelry. Please let us know when ordering if you're interested in a custom headtube badge. Custom headtube badge framesets will not have the BC logo painted onto the frameset.
