We have no marketing campaigns or sales number goals to hit each month. Bingham Built is simply about creating the best performing highest quality titanium bikes available. We focus on what’s most important in designing a custom built titanium bike. Design, ride, construction, experiences, and relationships with our clients are the most valuable things to our business.
We create all kinds of bikes; Road, Cross, Gravel, Commuters, Hard Tail, Plus, Fat. For the most part, we use American made 3/2.5 titanium tubing from both of America’s leading suppliers, Sandvik and Haynes. If it’s not American (which btw it is extremely difficult to source 100% American made tubing for all parts of the frame) we make an effort to know exactly where our titanium comes from to ensure we have the highest quality material available.
Bingham Built Bikes are all custom. We do not make stock sizes or have specific build kits. Our bikes are designed based on the unique desires & geometry of each rider. There is no one set of rules determining how to create the best fit, and you shouldn’t believe anyone who says that. We take the time to get to know each client to determine what specific geometry will suit them best. Each rider and their cycling goals are different and we take that into account because the end product depends heavily on it. Riding styles, body geometry, current bikes, and goals are all things we discuss when designing a custom bicycle. As a client, you’re very much involved in the process of creating your dream bike.
MACHINING & MITERING
We bend and cut titanium tubes in all different shapes and forms to create any kind of bike you can dream up. The majority of machining and mitering materials for our bicycles are done in-house. If it’s not done in-house, we try our best to keep things as close to home as possible, either in Colorado or a few states away. If you’re curious about where something is made, tooling, or machining techniques, just ask.
Welding is one of Brad’s specialties. We’re not really into bragging, but modesty aside for a minute, throughout the years Brad has won numerous awards for the best welding in the business. He’s won Best Tig Weld at The North American Handmade Bike Show the past 7 years in a row. Experience as a top welder in the industry for many years puts Brad in a class of his own. Good welding is important on a titanium bicycle. Not only does it create the structural integrity of the joints, but the entire process leading up to creating a good, clean weld has an impact on the overall quality of the frame. There is something to be said for riding a bicycle that has been welded by one of the best in the industry.
We build complete bikes or just the frame or any combination preferred. All the building is done in-house by our super awesome and talented mechanic, Ed. He has decades of experience as a mechanic in both the bicycle and motorcycle industry.
“FIRST OFF, THROUGH MY 10 YEARS AS A PROFESSIONAL CYCLIST I HAVE NEVER HAD A CUSTOM BICYCLE FRAME. CREATING MY TITANIUM BUILT IS AN EXPERIENCE I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN A CUSTOM BICYCLE, OR ANY BICYCLE REALLY. BRAD WAS SUPER FUN TO WORK WITH AND TOGETHER WE DESIGNED AN INCREDIBLE MACHINE! WHEN I JUMPED ON IT FOR MY FIRST INITIAL RIDE, IMMEDIATELY I THOUGHT ‘THIS FEELS LIKE MY BIKE!’ IT FIT LIKE A GLOVE AND I HAD NOT EVEN ADJUSTED MY SEAT HEIGHT YET. IT GAVE ME THE FEELING OF JOY AND FREEDOM WHEN I WAS KID RIDING AROUND TOWN ON MY BMX BIKE…”
