The joy of a custom build is we can fine tune the specifications of a bike to really suit an individual and their riding plans. But we often get asked for indicative pricing or a starting point for a custom build.

This spec broadly echoes Tumbleweed USA's own house build, with a few spec shifts. We reckon 29x2.6 is where its at for bike packing and that DT Swiss wide rims are the way to go.

We have included a SON dynamo hub and hand built wheels, but haven't included any lights or USB charging capacity. We love this sort of kit though so its definitely worth incorporating.

 

Call or email us to discuss how we can make your custom bike build dreams come true.
