The Killenbike Process
Each model is KILLENBIKE’s interpretation of a contemporary custom bicycle, with no lugs, decoration or embellishments. Every part of the assembly is designed in detail to achieve stiffness or compliance as needed, and to suit the rider and riding style.
Once you have picked your KILLENBIKE model (The Sheepskin, Centennial or Cumberland), this is the process to create your KILLENBIKE custom frame – as easy as A, B and C!”
A. Bike Fit
The bike fit is obviously critical to the best outcome. There are three ways to derive your bike fit, listed in order of preference:
Visit our preferred bike fitters.
Work with your preferred local bike-fitter.
Complete our online measurement form using your current frame to recreate the geo of a bike you love.
Once your bike fit is in hand, a KILLENBIKE consultation will determine the tube set required for your specific size, weight, age and cycling discipline.
KILLENBIKE will take the tube set, create the mitres with the mill and load it into the frame jig. The main tubes are tacked then checked for alignment on a surface table. Once true, the main triangle is fillet-brazed: an oxyacetylene torch melts a high-silver content brazing rod, and the silver is drawn into the tube joints.
The fillet brazes are then hand-carved to create a beautifully smooth transition between tubes. The rear triangle, with the unique wishbone created from tubes custom-bent in house, is attached using the same process. Final preparation for paint is meticulous.
C. Paint & Delivery
Select one of the included paint or powdercoat options (see specification for each design) or up-spec to a customised design. After final inspection your KILLENBIKE can be carefully packaged and shipped to your door, or collected from the Newtown workshop.
