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. 

This is the process for creating 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.

B. Fabricate

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.

The Bikes

SHEEPSKIN
ALL ROAD FRAME

Killenbike-Newtown-Custom-Bike-Bicycle-Frames-InnerWest-Sydney-Allroad-Angle.jpg
So called because this model was developed to take KILLENBIKE from Windsor to overnight at Sheepskin Hut, this is the bike to take you anywhere, on any surface.

CENTENNIAL
ROAD DISC FRAME

Killenbike-Newtown-Custom-Bike-Bicycle-Frames-InnerWest-Sydney-Road-Disc-Angle.jpg
The ultimate steel machine for tarmac, designed light and nimble for bunch-riding or tapping it out on the big hills. This bike is a weapon: built for performance, for riders accustomed to carbon frame dynamics, but after greater compliance and longevity.

CUMBERLAND

ROAD RIM FRAME

Killenbike-Newtown-Custom-Bike-Bicycle-Frames-InnerWest-Sydney-Road-Rim-Angle.jpg
Perfect for rolling along the Cumberland Plain, following the rivers out west, the KILLENBIKE Cumberland is a more traditional rim-brake frame, but with contemporary dynamics.
