We love custom builds. It’s one of our specialities, one of the things that makes VBC an experience. When you step aside and r  ealize you are not shopping, but creating a machine that is an extension of yourself, actually designing a representation of who you are in the form of metal and composite, an instrument to propel you over asphalt and pebble, or dirt and rock. Its then that you will feel one with your bike. Riding a bike that was hand built for you will change how you ride. Whether you are looking to feel every flowing turn at your local single track haunt, or doing multi-century rides across farm hills and river bluffs, or better yet heading to your local market in search of food and beverage, it will be that much better on a bike you love. When it comes time to build your dream machine, we work hard to give our clients very little to complain about.

A proper fit is the most critical determinant of how well a bicycle suits a rider. A new bicycle purchase should always begin with a conversation about fit. And if geographic challenges prevent you from dropping by on your lunch break, here are three ways we can work with you to fulfill your needs. As always, call or email with specific questions or to make arrangements.

1) Come for a visit. If you live outside the Estes Valley area, a custom fit is a noble excuse for a cycling vacation to Estes Park. We will gladly recommend local accommodations serving a variety of budgets, and we frequently welcome visitors from as near as across the county to as far as across the globe.

2) Send in your current specs. We are fluent in fit specifications from every major fit system. Whether the system consists of your tape measurements in a garage or a three-dimensional CAD rendering of you in a wind-tunnel, we can apply it to your bicycle.

3) Hire an expert in your area. If you’ve never been fitted and a trip to Via is unfeasible, we recommend visiting a local shop or coach who has experience with fitting. You can even put them in contact with us directly if you are concerned about losing something to translation.
