Custom Bikes

Custom Built Bikes- If you can dream it, we can build it.

We may be called mechanics, but we see ourselves as Artists and bikes are our medium. We are passionate about building unique custom builds that are set up to perfectly match the rider’s needs. This is how we set up our own bikes and it’s how we want your bike to be, built for you! We think you deserve the same ride that we do. The ride of your dreams!

Full Bikes

Purchasing a new bike is a big deal! The bicycle is something that you spend some pretty special time with, and that machine should certainly be something that adds to the experience. Here at The Garage we believe that the bicycle is an extension of the rider and should reflect on their unique personality & specific riding needs. All riders out there are individuals and we build all our bikes to be just as unique and one of a kind as their owners. We work with local painters at Uber Lack Paint Shop, and a local graphic designer for the most one-of-a-kind bikes in the business. All builds feature a complementary consultation and quote (with tasty cold beverages), and will be fully assembled by one of our master mechanics. Frames will be faced and tapped, wheels are precisely built/trued, derailleur systems dialed, brakes adjusted to perfection, cables and housing tight and clean, perfect fit on the cockpit, and professionally adjusted suspension.

Custom Wheels

Wheels are one of the most important parts on a bike, and are a great spot to look for noticeable upgrade performance. If you are looking to pump a fresh breathe of life into your trusty stead, a hand build wheel set from The Garage, will do just that. All our wheel sets are 100% laced by hand, featuring the finest components in the industry. All components are hand measured for precise spoke length. The wheels go through a multi step stressing and tensioning process & include a complementary follow up true and tension.

It’s been a long time dream to own a Yeti.  With its design and custom build, I’m now riding a machine that’s telling my skills to catch up.  It’s precise.  
Oh, not to mention it is the best handling bike I’ve owned or rode to date.  Happy trails.” – Shane

We laced up this one off wheel set for Cooper and the end result is quite stunning.  The custom painted rims by Elbert Paint Shop started as a black with white graphics and after a bunch of super light layers of candy blue paint, these gems popped out of the paint booth.  Match that with a custom decaled set 240s and some Dt Swiss goodies to lace everything together and we end up with some very functional art.
