An example of the welded joints.

Thanks for looking!

The Elite Velo Solutions website now contains pricing information for the framesets subject to the caveats of currency fluctuations and the actual build may affect the price. FWIW, the prices are in the same general ballpark as other really high end custom frames.

Pricing

Thank you for the post!

Likewise, thanks to everyone for their feedback, constructive criticism, and private messages concerning prices, prompting me to make a change.

There will be a new product launch beginning early September for 2018. This will include some new carbon disc thru models, as well as some beautiful custom colors and graphics. Stay tuned......
