Spring 2023 Lead time update:
Ordering a Bingham Built Bike is simple. Contact us and we’ll start the process.
Shoot us an email with some information about what kind of bike you’re interested in and questions if you have any. From there we’ll send a fit/order form so we can gather the relevant information needed to create an estimate. A deposit is needed to lock in a spot in production, we can take a deposit at any time, before or after you receive an estimate. Deposits can be placed via our webstore, check by mail, bank transfer, or Quickbooks payment link. Lead time starts from when we receive the deposit. Brad will start the design process a couple months prior to production and work through details of the build then, ordering components, etc.
We don’t list prices on our website because everything is custom and prices vary a lot. You can see more info about this on the FAQ page. We don’t have specific build kits either because… well, we just don’t. Again everything is custom. It’s not just the frame that is custom, but the entire build. Because each bicycle we create is unique, each estimate is also unique. A price list wouldn’t be entirely accurate and we wouldn’t want to be misleading. Get in touch and we’ll give a general price range for the type of bike and components you’re looking for. We provide a detailed estimate as we begin the process and it usually ends up changing a bit several times before the finished product.
Most Bingham Built bikes are sold directly to our clients to ensure you get exactly what you want. Going direct creates the best possible experience for us both. We work with a select few talented bike fitters as well.
The first step in ordering a custom bike is to contact us and tell us about yourself and what kind of bike you want. From there, we’ll send you a fit form and ask for some measurements along with some other info about yourself and your riding style. Getting to know you as a person is very helpful in creating your dream bike. The process of creating a custom bike is highly interactive, get ready to be asked a lot of questions and spend time chatting with us. Ordering a custom bike takes a little time and effort on your part to talk through details and options. It is a different experience versus going to a shop, talking to a sales person and picking out a bike off the shelf. Not that there’s anything wrong with picking out a bike at a bike shop, we’re just not a typical bike shop and have a different process.
We’ll use a current bicycle to get some measurements. It doesn’t matter if your current bike isn’t an ideal fit, let us know what you like and don’t like about it. We take everything into account to create the best custom fit. Brad will then create a bike drawing using CAD design software. He will discuss the drawing and components with you and make changes as needed. Lead time varies throughout the season and heavily depends on component availability. We cannot guarantee lead times.
Contact us to find out more. We do our best to get back to folks in a timely manner, apologies in advance if there are delays.
A non-refundable deposit is required to secure a place in production and begin the ordering process. Deposit requirements are $2000 for a frame alone, $3000 for a complete build, and $4000 for a tandem.
