My goal is to keep pricing as simple and straight forward as possible.  The price for a custom A-train Cycles frame is $2400 with your choice of fillet brazed or lugged construction.

  • Custom geometry
  • Custom tubing selection from all the finest manufactures.
  • All the braze-ons and mounting points you want.  I love practical, functional frames, and wouldn’t consider charging extra for rack mounts, chain hangers, or bottle mounts.

KVA or Reynolds 953 fully stainless steel frames will cost you $3200.  This includes stainless lugs and all stainless steel braze-ons.  Stainless frames come standard with a unpainted “brushed” finish and A-train Cycles decals.  Take a look around the gallery for some great examples of how beautiful a stainless steel custom bicycle can be.

If you would like to make a $500 non-refundable deposit to reserve your spot in the build queue contact me and I will provide payment information.

Frame Upgrades

There are a few items that are costly enough to justify additional charges. Here is a list of common upgrades:

  • Stainless steel dropouts (included on stainless frames)  +$20
  • Paragon sliding dropouts +$150
  • Paragon stainless brake bridge (included on stainless frames) +$20

Custom forks just the way you want them…anything from a lightweight, straight blade road fork to a stalwart touring fork with appropriate braze-ons for the most ambitious trips to the perfect rigid fork for your 29er. Included in the price is the fork with all the mounts you want and a single color powder coat.

  • Custom steel fork (sans frame purchase) $400
  • Custom steel fork (with frame)  +$350
  • Polished stainless fork crown +$150
