I want to start of by saying that where we live, there is no shop near that sells the frames that I want.
I am looking into building a (custom) built frame/bike like a Parlee, Alchemy, Crumpton. But it is really hard for me to get to a store or bike builder to get measured for the frame. As I am looking to spend that much money on the bike, I think that part of the process is really important. But I wanted to know if anyone here had any experience ordering a bike that way (online, through an online configurator and having the finished bike sent to you)?
I found shops like wrenchscience and fairwheelbikes that do it that way. Does anyone have any experience with those?
Thanks a lot.
Better than 95% of my clients never step foot in my shop to be measured. I deal mostly remote as you describe. It is not that difficult.
