MATERIALS AND FABRICATION
We choose state-of-the-art steel as the frame material.
State-of-the-art steel is our material of choice to build light and lasting made-to-measure bikes with an excellent road feel. The materials and our manufacturing process give us the freedom to create bikes with elegance and style. We source the latest generation high-end steel tubing from worlds best manufacturers.
The choice of tubing affects the stiffness, ride character, lifetime and weight of your bike and depends on your physique and temperament. We put together your custom tube set only after we’ve made your frame design. And we only start designing your frame after we’ve carefully made an inventory of your specific demands and bike fitting session with our partner SportMax.
There are some pretty good methods out there for building a steel frame. Our fabrication method of choice is brazing.
FABRICATION OF OUR ST JORIS – ROAD
For our St Joris – Road we use a highly refined technique called fillet brazing, using various types of silver alloys. It requires skill and expertise which we’ve built up over the years by consistently focusing on improving our methods and materials. This technique minimizes internal stresses and distortions during the build process and results in superior precision and alignment.
We use round and custom shaped tubing to meet rider-specific requirements. Our fillet brazed frames have an excellent fatigue resistance and lifetime and we are proud to be able to offer a very discerning finish level of our frames.
FABRICATION OF OUR ST JORIS – ROAD – LUGGED
Our Road – Lugged is build using over-sized precision cast lugs. We use high-silver containing brazing alloys to ensure the strongest joints and lowest process temperature to maintain the tubing potential and ensure perfect alignment of the frame. It is classic yet elegant and it’s built with the very best of today’s tubing technology.
