Homework

Thanks for the deposit!

You've decided to add a Manzanita to your stable. But before that happens, you'll need to provide some information so that your new bike will fit and ride well.

The links below take you to some Google forms, where you'll input your body and favorite bike dimensions. If you've recently had a professional bike fit, good news, you can likely copy those numbers into the forms.

If you're unsure about your bike fit, a promising and affordable alternative to a traditional bike fit is My Velo Fit. I can't vouch for it yet, as I haven't tested it, but it's an option to consider.

Fill out the following forms if you're ordering a hardtail:

  1. Body dimensions form - You'll need a friend to help you accurately measure your body.
  2. Hardtail dimensions form - Measure the bike you're currently most comfortable on.
  3. Hardtail questionnaire

Fill out the following forms if you're ordering an all-road or gravel bike:

  1. Body dimensions form - You'll need a friend to help you accurately measure your body.
  2. Drop bar bike dimensions - Measure the bike you're currently most comfortable on.
  3. Gravel bike questionnaire

Paint options

All frames include a single color powder coat in the base price. My painter then paints on the graphics and applies a clear coat over everything. This method offers a durable and beautiful finish.

But you don’t have to go with a powder coat. This is a custom bike after all. Continue reading to learn about the other finish options.

Let me know if you get overwhelmed choosing a paint scheme. I can help you narrow down the options.

You can also get other parts painted if you're going for that complete look. The Manzanita head tube badge and stem are common items that customers like to match their color scheme. Let me know what else you'd like to have painted and I can provide a quote.
