We love to build our frames to the highest standards that we can imagine, both in materials and workmanship. Yet, we have come up with a number of frame options that can make your bike exclusively yours.
Standard frame features
We only use top-shelf tubing from world-class manufacturers. The superior strength and fatigue resistance of these steel alloys make it possible to build your bike with thin and light tubing. Our slightly over-sized tubing dimensions guarantee an excellent efficiency – something that you will feel immediately when riding one of our bikes – and high torsional stiffness that makes high speed cornering easy.
Depending on your requirements, riding style and weight, we select the tubing size, butt profile and tube wall thickness to fine-tune the frame properties. Although every bike we make is designed for its owner, there is one thing our bikes have in common: they feature an unparalleled ride quality that you’ll appreciate more with each ride you make!
We pay special attention to those parts of your frame that are sensitive to intensive use throughout a bike’s life. You know, those locations where parts are mounted onto the frame, wheels that are frequently put in and out, they can damage the paintwork on your frame.
As a standard feature, we build those bits and pieces – dropouts, cable stoppers, derailleur mounts, bottle bosses, seat clamps, brake bridge faces – in stainless steel and carefully treat those spots before we mount any of your components.
Internal brake lines
We primarily build our bicycles with disc brakes. External brake cables are a no-go for us, which is why we make the extra effort to create internal brake cables for a clean and sleek look. Ease of cleaning is an added advantage as well as safety since the brake lines are well-protected when made internal.
For those who appreciate rim brakes, we build bikes with classic external brake cables as a nod to the traditional road bike. To maintain the elegant look, we craft stylish stainless cable stoppers. Optionally, we also build your bike with internal brake lines if preferred.
Personal build kit
A St Joris comes with a personal build kit. We can build your bike with the components of your choice in case you already have clearly in mind what you like. If you are not sure what components would be the best choice for your individual goals, we are more than happy to share our knowledge and advise you on the components that meet your requirements on fit, functionality, durability and design.
We love to work with hand built wheels and high-end components to set up your bike with. Amongst our favorites are ENVE Composites, Chris King, DT Swiss, Deda and WR Compositi.
